Coláiste Phobal advance to All-Ireland Senior Colleges Hurling Final

All Ireland Schools Senior Hurling B Semi Final

Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré 1-14

St.Mary's College Galway 1-7


Colaiste Phobal Roscrea advanced to the All Ireland Senior Colleges B Final after a good victory over a determined St. Mary's side at Whitegate on Saturday last. There was little to seperate the sides during the opening half though Roscrea had a couple of goal chances that they failed to convert. Having played against a stiff breeze Roscrea would have been reasonably happy going in at half-time just trailing by one point on a score line of St. Mary's 0-7 to Roscrea 0-6. On resumption of the second-half, Roscrea soon were on level terms after Daniel Doughan levelled matters with a well struck long range free. Roscrea were now in control and attacking from all angles and the St. Mary's backs gave away a number of frees which Jordan Fogarty converted to give Roscrea the lead that they would never lose. Roscrea introduced Adrian Cleary early in the second half and he also had a major say in the outcome scoring a goal and two points. Further points from Jamie Dooley and Evan Fitzpatrick sealed a historic win for Coláiste Phobal Roscrea to qualify for the Colleges B final at the first time of asking, where they will face Cross and Passion Ballycastle Co. Antrim who beat St. Fergal's Rathdowney in the other Semi-Final.  Panel  Enda Moloney, Ian Treacy, Brian Davis, Lee Cashin (Capt.),Evan Fitzpatrick, Shane Fletcher, Eoin Fitzpatrick, Josh Neville, Cian Rigney, Colman Treacy,Thomas McCarthy -(All Roscrea), Declan Cleary  J.P.

Green Schools

On Friday, 14th March  , the Student Council and the Green Schools Committee in our school, held a non-uniform day with a Green and Blue theme.

The purpose of the non-uniform day was to raise much needed funds for the school and to raise awareness of Green Schools and the Student Council. Each student was asked to pay €2.

We encouraged students and staff to wear green because it was close to St. Patrick’s day and because we wanted to raise awareness of Green Schools.  We also allowed them to wear blue as this colour represents water and our next Green Flag is the Water Flag.

The school was decorated nicely with colourful bunting by the Transition Year students and we placed posters around the school to notify students about the event.

We had a prize of €50 for the best-dressed student in blue or green at Senior level and at Junior level.  These prizes went to Michael Hannon (3rd Year) and Tara Dwyer (6th Year).  The best dressed staff member was Ms. Mulrooney, who won a hamper.

After the prize-giving, we planted a tree to mark the occasion.  The day was a great success and we raised €800.

We would like to thank all students, staff and management in the school for their enthusiasm and support.  A special thanks to the members of the Student Council and the Green Schools Committee and their teachers.
