On Thursday the 7th of April Fifth Year and Sixth Year Politics & Society students visited Leinster House. Here they had a Leinster House Tour along with a Questions and Answers session with Labour TD Aodhán Ó Ríordáin. The students were accompanied on the trip by Ms O’Brien, Mr Mannion and Mr Deering. The trip was kindly organised through Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, the Labour TD for Dublin Bay North. As part of the visit the students and teachers were taken on a guided tour of Leinster House where they got to witness a Dáil debate. The topic on the day included the cost of living and climate change. Students then got to explore both the upper chamber of the house Dáil Éireann, and the lower chamber of the house known as Seanad Éireann. Further events included learning about the portraits of the different Taoiseachs as well as general facts about the history of Leinster House and the first Dáil. After the guided tour the students got the opportunity to have a questions and answers session with Aodhán Ó Ríordáin. The students quizzed Mr Ó Riordain on why he got involved in politics, what is life like as a TD and what was the difference between the work of a TD and that of a Senator. During his career, Mr O’ Ríordáin has had the experienced of both. This followed more various insightful questions. Our students really enjoyed the trip, learning much about our national parliament and the life of a TD and Senator which they will no doubt incorporate into their future Politics and Society classes and exams. Finally, on behalf of the teachers, Fifth Year and Sixth Year Politics and Society students Roscommon Community College, we would like to thank Aodhán Ó Ríordáin for arranging the tour of Leinster House and for taking time out of his busy schedule to do the questions and answers session with us. We look forward to visiting Leinster House again in the next academic year.

Well done to RCC students Tommy Morris, Ryan Dowling, Brian Mannion and Dylan Treacy who splendidly represented the Roscommon Minor team in their first round of the Connacht Championship. The lads took part in a tough match against a well organised Galway side in Tuam Stadium on Friday the 22nd of April. Unfortunately, the result did not go the way of the Roscommon Minors whose next challenge will come against Mayo at Hyde Park. Commiserations and plaudits again to the RCC students who represented their school, families and themselves proudly on the day.

We wish plenty of enjoying to our Transition Year students who are currently at the Gaeltacht in Achill Island this week. This has been a great opportunity for students as Covid restrictions have prevented Transition Year students from travelling over the last two years. Our TY students have been enjoying many activities on the Island as well as using the opportunity to develop their Irish speaking skills on a daily basis.

Pictured are some of our Transition Year students taking part in the ‘Cycle Right Course’. This ongoing success programme has been delivered by the expert tutors from Roscommon Sports Partnership. This is a marvellous three-week programme where students learn the essential safety and competency skills required when cycling on the road. Every day more and more people are swapping their vehicles to cycle to work or college. Whether this be down to the cost of fuel or trying to conserve fossil fuels, these safety skills will no doubt benefit our students both in the present and going forward in the future. A super initiative enjoyed by all in the year! Well done to all included!
