Coláiste Oiriall wishes to congratulate two of its former students, Kerrie Ní Dhroma and Aoife Ní Láithimh who both received Entrance Scholars’ Awards at a ceremony in UCD O’Reilly Hall in early November. UCD Entrance scholars are first year students, recognised for their academic achievement who have achieved 560 points or more in their Leaving Certificate.

Congratulations to the five Coláiste Oiriall students who have won through to the All-Ireland semi-final of the Poetry Aloud competition, which will be held in the National Library, Dublin on 21st and 22nd November where participants will again be expected to speak two poems – one prescribed and one from a named anthology.

The Coláiste Oiriall under 20 girls had a facile victory against St. Louis Monaghan in the playoff of the group stage of the competition in Tyholland and went on to defeat Holy Trinity, Cookstown in the Ulster quarter final. They now play Thornhill College, Derry in the semi-final. We wish them well.

Amy Ní Amaill, a fourth year student, clinched a bronze medal in the Girls U16 race over 4000m at the National Juvenile Even Ages Championships at Santry Park in November. She had won the Ulster title in style three weeks earlier. From the off Amy positioned herself in the lead group as the large field of 118 athletes headed out on the first of their three laps.

The Student Council in Coláiste Oiriall, under the supervision of Múinteoir Bríd Ní Bhraoin, spearheaded a campaign in school to collect perishable goods for the St Vincent de Paul Society. The campaign was very successful and a big Go raibh míle maith agat to everybody who contributed goods to the appeal.
