Congrats to Ms Laura Fleming who unsurprisingly was named in the Lidl Ireland 2022 National Football League team of the league. Ms Fleming was one of many Rossies who were named in the Division three team of the league following their very successful campaign, where they were crowned champions. This is one of many great honours Ms Fleming has received this year following getting to one hundred caps, being named Roscommon ladies captain and lifting the Division three title. Ms Fleming will receive her award in Croke Park on May 6. Massive congrats to her and all those named in the team of the league.

Our u14 footballers completed their season by taking part in the recent Roscommon/Leitrim PPS Blitz in Carrick on Shannon. RCC were in a group of five. In our first match we took on Carrick on Shannon, beating them comprehensively and performing extremely well with fantastic scores from Alanna Campbell. Our second match was against Drumshanbo. Maebh Carley, between the posts, pulled off some outstanding saves to keep us in the game especially when Drumshanbo were on top. In result, all credit to our ladies, particularly with an excellent defensive display from Julia Grzegorczyk, Grace Dowling and Megan Feeney allowed Keela Kelly to score the winning point in injury time. Two wins from two. Strokestown were very strong and despite a courageous performance we were well beaten. RCC needed to win their final game against Abbey Boyle. Leah Flynn and Mia Gately battled hard in midfield, while Shannan Gavin, Sara Stephens, Lisa Morris, Ellen Egan and Ellen Henehan kept the scoreboard ticking over. While winning into injury time, until a late Boyle goal knocked us out of the tournament. After 2 hours of football, our ladies were very unlucky not to make the latter stages. The Under 14 ladies must be complimented for the excellence of their performances and their dedication to training since last September. Well done to the whole squad involved. Much thanks also to their coaches, Ms Fleming, Ms Sheils and Ms Gibbons for all their hard work organising matches and planning training.

A special Youth Mass was broadcast live on RTE from the Sacred Heart Church, Roscommon on Sunday the twenty fourth of April. A number of local students participated in this special mass, one of whom was our 3rd year talented musician, Nathan Mac an Bháird. Nathan was invited by his trad music tutor, John Wynne, who assisted with the music selection for the day. Nathan carried out the first reading and played an O'Carolan piece of music as part of a group at the offertory. He was thrilled to get the chance to participate. We hope this chance will be extended to more young people in our school. The mass is available to view on the RTE Player. Congratulations to Nathan and all involved in this wonderful initiative.

Four of our students completed the Level 2 Youth Leadership Course: Cúrsa Traenála na gCinnirí with Coláiste UISCE during the first week of their Easter holidays.
During this exciting course they received training in leadership skills, health and safety, fire hazards, self-confidence building as well as how to be Irish language ambassadors. They also completed a series of lectures and workshops to help develop an awareness of how to deal with home sickness, bullying and the importance of child protection. These are issues that may arise during the course of their work. Following on from a very successful course and interview process we are delighted to learn that Liam, Orla, Conor (3D) and Josh (4C) have all been offered positions as Ard-Cinnirí in Coláiste UISCE on their upcoming courses. We are immensely proud of their achievement and know that they will make excellent mentors to the students entrusted to their care as well as developing their own Gaeilge and Leadership skills.
Comhghairdeas libh go léir agus Maith sibh.
