DCU Awards.
We  commend Daire McKiernan who is receiving a scroll and achievement plaque at a ceremony in DCU on foot of his high performance at Leaving Certificate 2014.
Transition Years.
The TY group have a class in Karate every Friday. .  Mr. Gaffey has delivered a GAA Foundation Level coaching course to them.
Mr. Nolan engaged with them and the class entered  five team proposals in the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland project called “One good idea”.  One of the five groups have been selected to develop their proposals and compete in the next phase of the project.  The group will have a workshop from a visiting mentor in the coming weeks.  We wish them well in their endeavours.

Bereavements.
We express our sympathies to Blathnaid and Aoife Duignan on the death of their grandfather, Patrick Fitzsimons, to Lucia Tyrrell and her extended family on the death of her uncle, Colm Mullen, granduncle to students Dillon Tyrrell and Emma Quinn and to David Faughnan on the death of his grandaunt, Elizabeth McGarry. May they rest in peace.
