Girls Basketball.

Second years played St Catherine’s Killybegs in the North West final at a Sligo venue. The girls played really well and were ten points ahead at one stage, however the pendulum swung and Killybegs  won by a single point on a scoreline of Mohill C.C. 26,  Killybegs  27. The girls still qualify for the All Ireland playoffs at the weekend. We wish them and Ms Hargaden Ward the best of luck.
Athletics Ireland Indoors.  
Students Eoin Gaffey and Alannah McGuinness took part in events in Athlone last week. Eoin came fourth in the U17 walk and Alannah competed in the 60m and reached the final, she also ran a leg of the relay.Well done to both.
Bake Sale.
The first year Business class are holding an Easter bake sale and  raffle. The proceeds will go towards funding students Michelle Hackett and Marc McKeon who will act as helpers on the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes in May.
Trocaire.
Last week Ms Anna Keegan a development officer with Trocaire gave a talk to students on their work and support for the people of Honduras. Parts of the country have been ravaged by up to six storms a year  and the people have to evacuate their homes each time to move to safer areas. Trocaire have made waterways that allow faster escape by boat and feel that in the long run the Hondurans will have to relocate permanently.    Marc McKeon.
Bereavement. 
We sympathise with Ms Hargaden Ward and Ms Kellegher on the passing of their uncle in law Pat Kellegher. May he rest in peace.
