Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said that the investment in a new VEC campus in Monaghan is ‘a statement for the next fifty years’. Mr. Kenny was speaking at the site of the multi-user campus on 25 October which is currently in the early stages of construction. The campus includes Coláiste Oiriall.

Teasing, back-combing, gel sculpting and waves were all evident in Coláiste Oiriall on Friday for the Lá Gruaige Mire or “Mad Hair Day” for Make-A-Wish Ireland. Students and staff turned up with beehives, spikes, curls and frizz to raise valuable funds for Make-A-Wish Ireland by wearing their Mad Hair Style and donating €2.00 per person to the charity.  Make-A-Wish’s “Mad Hair Day” was sponsored by Peter Mark nationwide, who sponsored computer prizes for Secondary Schools for the most creative hair style.
