Commiserations to our minor Camogie team who were defeated by the Convent of Mercy last Wednesday (20/3/2019). The match was played a home game, and the girls were determined to show the neighbouring school the skills they had developed throughout the year training very hard with transition years and fifth years. Chloe McNamara showed a great amount of bravery putting her body on the line to stop the sliotar from getting past her when she was moved into the full back position. She showed a tremendous amount of determination chasing after the ball to get rid of it out of the back line, this having a knock on effect on the rest of the team. Mairéad Lohan gathering the ball in midfield along with Siafra Finneran and sending ball after ball into the forward line, where Sienna Snow made use of her boot when her hurl wasn’t available after Andrea Fallon had lobbed in a great ball. She kicked the sliotar into the back of the net with ease. Siafra then scored a tidy point during play to keep the RCC girls motivated. After half time, the girls came back on to the pitch and put their hearts into the finishing of the game. Eimear O’ Connor was brought on and scored a superb goal keeping the girls’ heads up. Everyone played the best they could considering the opposing team were physically stronger. All in all, the RCC girls played very well together and have another match next Wednesday in Galway. Best of Luck Girls!

Some of our 1st year and 2nd year students attended a music workshop in Scoil Mhuire in Strokestown on Thursday morning. Caroline Moreau taught the group a selection of beautiful French songs. The workshop also included students from Scoil Mhuire and Carrick on Shannon Community School. The French Embassy kindly sponsored the event and also treated us all to coffees and croissants. Thanks to Ann Brudell and Nathalie-Zoe Fabert for organising this event. Thanks also to Ms.Shanley and Ms.Farrell for their help.


Well done to Josh Reddington who won a spot prize on the day!

Bhí Seachtain na Gaeilge faoi lán seol i gColáiste Pobail Ros Comáin i rith na seachtaine. On Monday Transition Years had a workshop on the Irish Language from Sorcha Ní Chnoic of Conradh na Gaeilge. Tuesday morning saw first years stepping it out in a Céilí in the GP with help and guidance from the Transition Years. On Tuesday afternoon the Transition Years took to the floor agus bhí an-craic ag gach duine! Wednesday morning the second years teamed up for a very competitive Tráth na gCeist with Jeaic Ó Máinín (4C) doing a fantastic job as quizmháistir. Comhghairdeas to Michael Stevens, Ben Somers, Ciao Mulryan agus Fionáin Gaughan a bhuaigh an tráth na gceist don Dara Bliain.


On Thursday it was the turn of our fifth years who took a break from Prós and Filíocht to test their knowledge as Gaeilge in a Tráth na gCeist in the GP. Celebrations ended on Friday with a musical and dance performance in the GP ag am sosa from our Trad Group.

First years have also been busy taking part in a Comórtas Póstaer over the past fortnight using the Seanfhocail they have been learning in class and winners of this competition will be announced shortly.

Roinn na Gaeilge would like to extend a special Míle Buíochas to a very dedicated and hardworking group of Transition Year students who are always close at hand to promote Gaeilge and help in whatever way they can to share their grá don Ghaeilge with the rest of the school.”Beatha teanga í a labhairt.”
