One-Wall Handball Tournament

Well done to our 1st & 2nd Year Handball teams who travelled to Roscommon last week for the Annual One Wall Handball Tournament. Our 2nd Year students Cormac, Ethan, Sean & Patrick who were finalists last year, won all their games and defeated another Dunmore side in the finals. Our girls won the plate competition & our other boys team were runner-up in the plate. It was a really enjoyable tournament. Thanks to Roscommon Convent for hosting the event

Day 3 of the TY tour brought us to Gardaland, where we had an adrenaline filled day of rollercoasters, laughs and fun. The students (and teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the day here, and we even managed to squeeze in some shopping on the trip home.

Day 2 of our trip brought us to the beautiful city of Venice, where we had a guided walking tour of the city streets, followed by a tour of a glass factory and then some time for retail therapy. An enjoyable day made even better by lovely weather. Today, we are off for a fun day of rollercoasters at Gardaland, an amusement park with 32 various rides for the students (and the teachers) to enjoy!
