Congratulations to the members and mentors of the local club who have recently awarded first place in a national competition sponsored by Aldi.

Current students who were involved are John Heslin, Josh Lupton, Gerry McCrann, Adam Kelly, Rebecca Bohan, Tara Copley, Danielle Mayo, Gavin Gordon, Muireann O’Kelly, Eira Gaffey, Olivia Mulkerrins, Eileen Canning.
