Castletroy College flanker Niall O’Shea gets away from John Murphy, of Glenstal Abbey in their SEAT Munster Schools Senior Cup first round tie played at Rosbrien this Tuesday

CASTLETROY College made a winning start to their Munster Schools Senior Cup campaign when edging past a fancied Glenstal Abbey side 10-7 in their first round tie played at Rosbrien this Tuesday.

Out-half Jamie Heuston bagged all 10 points for Castletroy who are bidding to win the Cup for the first time since 2008. The winner made a dream start when Heuston showed good strength to collect a terrific box-kick from his half-back partner Stephen Atkinson before powering his way over the line.

Heuston also added the difficult conversion from wide on the right.

City Cup winners Glenstal, who had beaten St Clement’s College in the previous round, responded superbly and drew level within six minutes when full-back Colm Hogan touched down after the Murroe side stretched their opponents defence to breaking point. Out-half Jack Stafford added the conversion.

What proved to be the winning score of this game arrived in the 27th minute when Jamie Heuston kicked a terrific penalty goal from close on 30 metres.

Castletroy, led by the likes of hooker Mark O’Mara, flanker Ronan Murphy and influential back-rows Niall O’Shea and David Rowsome, maintained their 10-7 lead until half-time. Glenstal may rue their decision to kick for the corner from penalty awards in the opening half rather than kick at goal.

Glenstal Abbey dominated territory and possession for long stretches of the second half, superbly led by flanker John Murphy, but were unable to breakdown their opponents resolute defence. Castletroy managed to hold firm despite having a player sin-binned with 20 minutes remaining.

Castletroy will enjoy home advantage for the quarter-final stages of the competition as a result of this win. All is not lost for Glenstal, who can still make the last eight of the Cup. However, the Murroe side will be on the road for that tie.

The quarter-final draw for this season’s Munster Senior Cup is due to be made after this Wednesday’s remaining quarter-finals are completed.

SCORERS: Castletroy College: Jamie Heuston try, pen, con. Glenstal Abbey: Colm Hogan try, Jack Stafford con.

 

CASTLETROY COLLEGE – Tom Ryan; Colum Carroll, David Garry, Ronan McDonnell, Sean McBrearty; Jamie Heuston, Stephen Atkinson; Joseph Conway, Mark O’Mara, Conor Myers; Mike Finucane, Sean English; Ronan Murphy (Capt), Niall O’Shea, David Rowsome.

A student liturgy group was formed this year in Castletroy College, composing mainly of Transition years, with great volunteers from each year group also. They prepared a special Christmas liturgy , including the proceedings having a student MC for each service, a candle ceremony, prayers, readings all compiled at their weekly meetings together with a special Christmas video clip from Ms Martina Murphy’s Religion class.
We had wonderful music and singing in the carol service provided by our talented students, coordinated by Ms Catherine Clohessy, including a unique and wonderful performance of Silent Night in Irish Sign Language from Ms.Cunneen’s TY sign language class.  To accommodate the volume of students in our school ,we had two services. This also meant that  a second  team from the liturgy group could be formed to present the second service. We also had TY volunteers planning the layout and organisation of the Gym together with our Caretaker , Mr. Richie Quinn.We worked together with our Music Dept., our Religion Dept. together with our sign language teacher Ms Anita Cunneen.Thank you to the PE Dept., for the use of the School Gym.
Well done to all students and staff involved.

On the 7th of January 2015, Deirdre 4 started the Learn to Earn Programme with The Bank of Ireland. Two employees from the bank, Olivia and Marie came in to complete the programme with us. With them, they brought workbooks for each student and board games. They put us into groups of four and we played the game. The board game was similar to monopoly but with a business twist added to it. This was a great way for students to learn about household budgeting and it kept all of us interested while learning about finance and working life.

We were given various activities and questions in our personal workbooks about fraud and money laundering, loans and the advantages and disadvantages of credit. This is useful for our financial future. We were then invited to visit the Bank of Ireland branch in the Parkway on the 20th of January 2015.

This visit was really interesting and we learned about the day to day running of a bank. We learned about how the ATMs work, how to recognise counterfeit money, how money is counted and what they do during an emergency.

Thank you to our business teacher Ms. McGrath and Olivia, Marie and the other staff from the Bank of Ireland for organising the trip.

Learn to Earn is a very interesting programme and a fun way to teach TY Business students about the bank and how to look after your money in the future.

Owen Silke, Stationary’One Stop Shop’ with First year Business Studies Students

As part of our Transition Year Business option, Fionn 4 invited a number of speaker’s from different industries in the local area to come into the classroom and share their knowledge and skills with the Business students from different year groups.

Our class spilt up into different groups such as the food/retail industry, medical industry, sports/recreational industry, entertainment and I.C.T industry. We then wrote up a number of questions and may contact with guest speakers from each industry and invited them into our school to enlighten students with information about their own experience in their businesses such as Advertising, Products, Social Media, Marketing, Location etc. At the end of this event we would hope that the business students from different groups would have a greater knowledge and understanding in each of the sectors. We would like to thank our guest speakers from our local community Owen Silke, Stationary ‘One stop shop’,  Garry Lowe ‘whizzkids’, Sharon Le Gear, ‘Photographer’, Ken Boland Food School Company and Conor Sheehan entertainment. We would also like to thank our Business teacher Ms. McGrath for helping us organise this very successful project as we really enjoyed it.
