North Munster Secondary Schools’ Cross Country Championships Success for St. Joseph’s

St. Joseph’s students from 1st Year to Transition Year took part in the North Munster Secondary Schools’ Cross Country Championships last Thursday January 29th. Well done to all our athletes who endured very challenging running conditions in Pallaskenry, Co. Limerick.
Our minor girls were first to run. Cliodhna Ryan and Rebeca Keane put in great performances on a very wet, cold and windy day. Next runners up were our minor boys team of Adam O’ Neill, Jimmy O’Gorman, Ben Ryan, Liam McInerney, Dan Withycombe, AJ Reynolds and Ronan McGrath. All ran very well in very heavy underfoot conditions.
Kayleigh Cahill had a great individual performance in the junior girls race, finishing in a very impressive 6th position, followed by Maeve Moroney, Sarah Bergquist, Leah Molloy, Nessa Flynn and Aisling Dooley. These girls came 4th in the team event and have now qualified for the Munster Schools Competition.
First year Fintan Caulfield ran a fantastic race in the junior boys event, finishing in 6th position, followed closely by team mates Paddy Donnellan, Cormac Murphy and Enda Madden. This ensured a second place position in the team event and another Munster qualification. The other team members were Joe O’Sullivan, Christopher Notre, Luke Meade, Jonah Bartelink and William Corbett.
Our intermediate boys put in very impressive performances, with Sean Cahill (4th), David Meehan (5th), Sean Murphy (15th) and John Duggan (16th) all finishing high up. They were followed closely by Cathal Browne, Feargal Kearney, Stephen Donnellan and Keith Donnellan. These great performances from the boys led to a silver medal in the team event, ensuring that St. Joseph’s will have 3 teams running in the Munster Competition. The other intermediate boys running were Alan O’Dea, Niall Queally and Paul Kelleher.
We are so proud of all of our athletes, particularly given the very challenging running conditions on the day. We are now looking forward to the Munster Schools’ Competition which will be held in Cork IT on Thursday February 11th.

Tulla Leaving Cert students keep up a 37 year tradition raising over €4000
On December 17th and 18th the leaving certs of Tulla were involved in a 24 hour fast and slept in a school over night with teachers to raise money for Sr. Angela in Kenya.
This is a tradition begun 37 years ago ( in the school) by John Stack and Michael Mc Mahon
They collected money through sponsor ship cards, and braved the wet weather to collect money on the streets of Tulla. It was a very special night as it was the last fast to be held in the old school as this year we will be moving into the new school building. The present leaving certs along with some students who participated in the very first fast 37 years ago celebrated Mass together with Fr. Brendan, Fr. Martin and Fr. Gerry Carey, who travelled from Ennis, to be part of this special occasion. This is very important historical moment for the entire school population.

The Art Department taking inspiration from local Artists

The Art Department taking inspiration from local Artists

1In the run up to Christmas, Second Year art students, with Miss O Dwyer got to meet with a variety of practicing artists and learned about their methods, processes and techniques. First students were visited by renowned artists Jane and Sally Seymour, and got to examine the pottery work of Jane and illustrations done by Sally for the variety of published books she has worked on.
Later in the week students learned more about how an architect works from a visit from Sioban Mulcahy who talked about her work and her involvement in the redesign of “The Stables” into artist studios. After learning more about the history and design of “The Stables”, students went to visit Julia Rice in her studio space where they got to see a working environment of an artist as well as painting work done by Julia.

Finally students were visited by Lewis Goodman, who spoke to students about his love of art and the struggles of being an artist. He also brought in examples of his beautiful stone work, sketchbooks and tools.

These visits aim to inspire students, help students form a better understanding of the many different processes and approaches artists have to working as well as becoming familiar with the artwork that the artist creates.
