Open Night 2019

A fantastic evening was had by all in Coláiste Chú Chulainn last night when we celebrated our first open night in our new school campus. Prospective students participated in a treasure hunt around the building visiting all the different subject departments and taking part in a series of activities including wood burning in the construction department, probability quizzes in maths, lino printing in art and experiments in the science rooms to name but a few.

A huge thank you to all the parents and young people who attended, the staff and students for their work in preparation for the night and the canteen team for the lovely refreshments!

Under 16s & under 19s Girls Basketball

Under 16s and 19s girls started their season with home games against Scoil Ui Mhuiri today. Under 16s were up first and took to the lead in the first quarter. However in the second and subsequent quarters there was a tough battle to stay in the lead and Scoil Ui Mhuiri forged ahead. CCC fought hard to narrow the gap and succeeded but two late scores from Scoil Ui Mhuiri the took the win from under our feet. A great match with some smashing outside scores from our girls. Under 19 girls took the lead from the start of their match and there was tough opposition with a narrow margin throughout the game the Chú Chulainn defence was on fire and the girls retained good possession throughout the match taking a close win in the final quarter. 

Thanks to Bean Ui Riodal and Ms McLoughlin for their support in coaching the girls today and Hannah, Ayo, Whitney and Zara on the table.
