Pres Thurles Qualify For Third Successive Munster
Pres Thurles 4-5 Coláiste Choilm, Ballincollig 1-4
On Thursday last Presentation Thurles welcomed Coláiste Choilm to Thurles to contest this years Munster Camogie semi final. Conditions were dreadful with persistent rain and a howling wind during the match. Presentation Thurles seized the initiative right from the get go as Grace O'Donnell won
possession from the throw in and burst forward before firing a ball from distance all the way to the Cork net. Coláiste Choilm were visibly rocked by this setback as Aoibheann Clancy quickly added two points from placed balls to open a gap. Coláiste Choilm settled their nerves with two points of their own
but were immediately thrown, when the ever reliable Casey Hennessy won possession before rifling home another goal for Pres Thurles. Once again to their credit Coláiste Choilm responded but this time with a superbly taken goal to really bring them back into the contest. However, this Presentation
Thurles team responded in typical fashion with Aoife Finlay registering her first championship goal. Just as halftime approached Pres Thurles came up with the killer blow to Coláiste Choilm’s Munster ambitions as the brilliant Casey Hennessy once again won possession and inevitably the ball
ended up in the Cork net. Coláiste Choilm would never recover as the gap was too big on a day where scores were going to be hard to come back from. Grace O Donnell was at her best in the
middle of the field and a defence marshalled by captain Anna Gavin and Molly O' Connor was not for passing. Aoibheann Clancy was a constant thorn in the side of the Cork defence throughout the contest and the Pres girls can now look forward to a Munster final date with Coachford College on the 13th of
LCVP Winter Wonderland in aid of Temple Street Hospital! Well done to our 5th year LCVP class for organising such an enjoyable morning for our 1st year students. The girls had organised so many activities such as a table quiz, photo booth, hair and nail bar, bake sale, novelty games, karaoke and it ended with a dance off! Everyone left in high spirits after it. Thank you to their teachers Ms Prendergast and Ms O'Sullivan.
Our 3rd year Music class who recently visited the Hospital of the Assumption, Thurles to perform for their Mass and Annual Christmas Party. A big thank you to the staff for letting our students be a part of a very special day and also thank you to Ms Stapleton and Ms Harrold for organising the visit.
Congratulations to all our students who participated in the One Mile Challenge on December 5th!
