Presentation Day – November 21st

On Monday last, we had a wonderful celebration for Presentation Day. This is such a significant day for everyone here in Presentation Thurles. We celebrated the massive contribution that the Presentation Sisters have given to the Thurles town area over the last couple of centuries, with a prayer service in gratitude to the Sisters. May God bless all of the Presentation Sisters near and far. We also remembered the Sisters who have gone to their eternal heavenly home.

TY Workshop

The Seó Bóthair workshop took place last week for all of our TY students. The workshop was a great opportunity to showcase the many benefits associated with speaking Irish on a daily basis. It highlighted the vast array of job opportunities for those who speak the language. This workshop also addressed the many misconceptions surrounding the language. A big ‘Go raibh mile maith agat’ to Síbeal from Conradh na Gaeilge, who delivered a wonderful workshop.

Junior Football

Last week, our Junior Football team had a fantastic win over Loreto Clonmel. Our girls battled hard against a very talented Loreto Clonmel side with both teams exchanging some fine scores. Our girls continued to battle hard well into the second half and their hard work paid off with some well worked scores sealing an emphatic win. Great resilience was shown and a fantastic team spirit saw the girls come from three points behind to win on a final score line of 9-8 (35) to 4-8 (20). Pres Thurles abú!
