Congratulations to Eoghan Whittle, fifth year student, who represented Ireland in the Coupe de la Jeunesse rowing regatta which was held in France in early August. Coup de la Jeunesse is a European rowing competition, rowed over 2 kilometers, for rowers under the age of 18.

Eoghan rowed in quadruple sculls with a crew drawn from Shandon, Waterford and Athlone boat clubs. Having qualified from the heats the Irish crew lined up for the final which was a fantastic race to watch. The boys tucked into the middle of the field until the last 250meters of the race when they made a push and stormed through the finishing line in first place a full length ahead of the Spanish crew who in turn were half a length ahead of the Polish crew. Gold medals for the Irish boys.  A brilliant result which was hard earned and well deserved. Congratulations boys and from Castletroy College a big congratulations to Eoghan.

Castletroy College would like to wish the Limerick hurlers all the best in the upcoming All Ireland Final. The game takes place in Croke Park on September 7th and we would also like to congratulate current students Barry Nash, Edward Doyle, Lorcan Lyons and Andrew La Touche Cosgrave who will represent their county on Sunday. We also recognise the achievement of last year’s Leaving Cert Students Tom Morrissey and Jamie Porter as members of the Munster champion’s panel. All of these players have contributed hugely to the success of hurling in Castletroy College over the past 6 years, in particular due to their involvement in successive Harty Cup panels since 2011. Thanks for all the hard work and dedication. Luimneach Abú.

Limerick’s Urban Horse Project a huge success

August 22, 2014 Arts, Featured Comments Off
Horsesml copy

Limerick’s Urban Horse Project, a City of Culture Legacy project by Limerick Corridor Art Programme Ltd is a huge success and students of Castletroy College have contributed to it. A large number of students submitted designs, as seen previously on our website, and eight students attended workshops during the summer holidays to paint models based on these designs.

 

Angela Connolly, artist, educator, social entrepreneur and founder of Limerick Corridor Art Programme, described the students as “a credit to your school and I would have no hesitation working with them again”.

 

The students describe the colours on one of the models as very similar to the school colours and the other model is rather like the sky with clouds floating by. The girls decided to include words that were meaningful to them. This idea was inspired by one of the designs and one of the girls wrote the words “Where words fail, art speaks” on the head of the model.

 

The Launch date for Limerick’s Urban Horse Project is September 19th at 6pm in the Peoples Park and all are welcome. Do not miss this excellent Limerick City of Culture event and the work of Castletroy College students who participated!!

 

Limerick’s Urban Horse Project

Limerick’s Urban Horse Project is a City of Culture Legacy project by Limerick Corridor Art Programme Ltd.  It is led by Angela Connolly, artist, educator, social entrepreneur and founder of Limerick Corridor Art Programme. The project aims to collaborate with people of all ages across our city and beyond and with young people in particular, to explore the creative and imaginative side of Limericks youth while celebrating Limericks unique horse culture.

Fifteen groups from across Limerick were chosen to participate in this large community public art project due to be displayed as part of the programme of events for Limerick as the National City of Culture and to coincide with Limericks Culture Night this coming September 19th 2014. These groups, in collaboration with other artists, will produce a group of horse sculptures. The interactive horse models will be displayed in the Peoples Park until 31st October 2014. They will then travel across the city where they will go on display in various locations until 31st December 2014.

Students from Castletroy College have been busy these past few weeks preparing their own unique designs to decorate and paint their horse model.  It is due to be painted during the months of June and July, in an out-of-school supervised workshop where artists will be available to help and give guidance where necessary.

This is a wonderful project for Castletroy College and the city of Limerick during this year of the National City of Culture. We look forward to seeing one of these sculptures installed in the school when the exhibition around the city is complete
