Well done to all our u16 & u19 teams who represented Dunmore CS in the Connacht Championships. Our u16 team Thomas Kilgarriff, Jamie Bowens, Declan Forde & Darragh Heneghan were narrowly beaten in the U16 final v Strokestown. Our U19 team Cathal Heneghan Conor Finn Thomas Comer & Eanna had a tough challenge in the U19 final but beat Ballyhaunis CS on points to win the final.
Hard luck to our First Year Boys basketball team who were very unlucky in the final this week. We put in a great performance and were beaten by one point. It was a very exciting finish and we were unlucky not to come out on top. However we will now go forward to the pre-lim stages and hopefully will book a place in the All Ireland play-offs.

TY Students undertook a project in Dunmore parish recently and exhibited it in Knock last Thursday. Shauna Ryan and Leah Noone spoke about their project to the large group assembled on the day. Pictured is Shauna Ryan who received the certificates from Archbishop Michael Neary for the class. It was a lovely day for all involved and the students enjoyed the presentations from the other schools. Daniel Millett, Daragh Mannion, Aoife Sheehy, Meagan Naughton , Emer Meehan and Chloe Warde were involved in a prayer service in the Apparition Chapel which concluded a very worthwhile day at Knock. The students along with their teachers were very grateful to Fr Fergal and Sr. Bernardine for all their help and support and to all who helped them in any way.
