Coláiste Oiriall was awarded the runner-up place in the senior section of the Co. Monaghan Student Enterprise Awards which was organised by the Local Enterprise Office and which was held in the Four Seasons Hotel last Thursday. They received a prize of €200. There were 35 entries in total. Ba mhaith linn comhghairdeas a dhéanamh leo.

Some of the TY students had established the mini-company, ‘Ceardchártaí’ and had designed, printed, marketed and distributed the cards themselves in the weeks prior to Christmas. Ba thionscnamh tras-churaclaim é a raibh baint ag an Roinn Gnó agus an Roinn Ealaíne.

The students were accompanied by their mentor, Múinteoir Seán Mac Thaidhg. The ‘Ceardchártaí’ team members were Kyle Ó Ciara, Seán Mac Giolla Bháin, Zach Ó Mealláin, Caoimhe Anne Ní Mhathúna, Megan Ní Mharcaigh, Megan Ní Chaiaráin, Sadhb Nic Cába, Jill Nic Rodáin agus Coimhe Mary Ní Mhathúna.

Priontáladh 120 cárta de 7 gcoincheap agus priontáladh 240 cárta de 6 choincheap. I dtús ama chuir na scoláirí ríomhphoist chuig gnóthaí áitiúla chun an tsuim agus an t-éileamh a mheas agus mar thoradh tháinig siad aníos le líon gach cárta a bhí le cur i gcló

The cards were sold in schools, third level colleges and shops as well as in the Made in Monaghan pop up shop and in the Market House. Social media was used extensively to promote sales including twitter, facebook, snapchat and Instagram as well as the website.
