Our 1st and 2nd yr girls bravely took on St.Nathys in our league campaign.

This team showed amazing fight and determination hard luck girls. Our 2nd-year girls were superior from the start and secured a place in the quarter-finals Vs Spiddal on today, the Thurs 14th March.

Chess Secondary Schools Final

Best of Luck to the Six teams from DCS who are taking part in the Connacht and Ulster Chess Z Secondary School finals tomorrow in Sligo. Chess is one of our extra curricular activities in school. Transition year students play a big part in teaching and playing chess with fellow students. Playing chess promotes brain growth, teaches planning and foresight, improves memory and raises IQ. We wish all our players the best of luck for tomorrow’s competition. Well done to you all on the hard work and time you have put into practicing for the competition and thanks to Mr Pat Coleman and Ms Brogan for all their help in preparing them for this competition.

Our 1st Year (red) boys basketball team topped their group and then faced Headford in the semi-final. Dunmore had home advantage and we got an opportunity to use our new scoreboard which was purchased with funds from our Students Council.

We will play St. Raphael’s Loughrea in the Regional final in NUIG on 21st March
