First Year Hurling

Hard luck to the first year hurling team who lost their first match of the year to Rathkeale on the scoreline of 5-08 to 3-04. After a great start with an early goal from Thomas Quigley, Rathkeale got the upper hand in the second half with some well taken scores. Some great performances for Coláiste Chiaráin by Ian De Capitani, Eoin Cregan, Shane O Connell, Dean Shinners and Thomas Quigley.

Well done also to Mr. Richard Flannery, their coach.

Fourth years preparing well for Mini Company Competition!

Coláiste Chiaráin's fourth year business classes who are participating in the National Mini Company Competition, were given a talk by Gary Lowe today. Gary is a local entrepreneur and representative of county Limerick Enterprise Board. He spoke to them about their potential ideas and advised them on all aspects of running their own company. It was a very beneficial visit and Gary will return to the school at the end of November to give further advice and mentoring.

A sincere thank you to Mr. Lowe for his time!!
