At the end of the mass Mr. Gallagher (Principal), thanked everybody for attending and he also thanked those who made the prayerful liturgy possible.

Health Week 2019

Cashel Community School held their annual ‘Health Week’ from September 30th – October 3rd. This whole school initiative endeavours to highlight to students the importance of making healthy food choices for the academic year ahead. A number of informative captions and posters were posted throughout the school. The sugar and fat content of foods from the top of the food pyramid was a real talking point. There was also a poster indicating the amount of sugar in the most popular fizzy drinks and breakfast cereals that teenagers buy. This initiative was strongly supported by the local community with healthy brown bread, scones, turkey burgers, low fat sausage, vegan options, brown rolls, overnight oats, fruit salads and apples distributed amongst the 860 student cohort. First Year Home Economics students participated in a ‘Fruit Sculpting’ competition. Transition Years played an integral part in the week helping to coordinate the distribution of healthy food and drinks to the various classes. 6th year Home Economics students attended a very informative talk by a Dietician focusing on ‘Food Fads’ which are prevalent on social media. This presentation was exceptionally well received by those present. Staff also enjoyed healthy snacks throughout the week. There was a very entertaining ‘Blind Tasting’ lunch-time event between two members of staff with our caretaker Seamus Murphy taking the honours with full marks!! Staying active was another component of the week. Most junior classes participated in the ‘drop everything and run’ initiative. This involved all junior students running/ walking around the school circumference for a 40 minutes period or exercising within the classroom when the weather was inclement. A lot of broad smiles were spotted as they passed classroom windows!! TY classes participated in a ‘Boot Camp’ facilitated by a WIT Sports graduate. There was also a staff obstacle course on Wednesday lunchtime which highlighted the highly competitive nature of the staff members of CCS. Students cheered on their teachers with great gusto. The week proved to be highly successful and informative which impacted on the positivity of the whole school community. It is hoped that students will be more nutritionally and activity aware in their daily lives as a result of the knowledge they gained in the past week. It is also hoped that these events have contributed in a positive way to the students’ physical and mental Wellbeing. This initiative would not have been possible without the input and cooperation of students, staff and the local community.

Quarter finals for Cashel seniors as they ease past Ennis

Cashel Community School ensured their passage into the quarter finals of the Thomais Mhic Choilm cup with a six point win over Rice College Ennis on Wednesday last. In a game that was played in very suitable conditions for the time of year Cashel hit the ground running. Immediately from the throw in Cashel sought to assert their dominance and raced into a three point lead with Stephen Browne, Aaron Moloney and inside forward Aaron Browne raising white flags. Rice College got off the mark with a score from their centre forward but it was the Tipperary men who were firmly on top in the opening quarter. The Cashel inside forward line were finding space and causing problems for the Ennis backs resulting in two more points from a Browne free and another from Riain Quigley. Despite this period of dominance however Cashel were guilty of spurning at least two clear cut goal chances. They did eventually make the breakthrough when Quigley goaled after some good work from full forward Jack McGrath. As the game entered the second quarter the Clare side began to rally and hit 1-2 in a five minute blitz bringing the score line to 1-5 to 1-3. The Cashel men might at this stage have wondered would they rue those missed opportunities. The Cashel response did come courtesy of their dangerous inside line this time Browne with two and McGrath, one firing over points. They continued to finish the half well and goaled though energetic midfielder Aaron Moloney. The accurate Browne managed to raise one more white flag just before the ref’s whistle to leave the scores 2-9 to 1-3 at halftime. The Tipperary team started the second as they had the first even down to the same opening scorer in Stephen Browne. The men from the Banner were not going to lie down however and again had 1-2 scored in a frenetic period of play which saw their own full forward line bear fruit leaving four between the sides. The lead was once again extended thanks to the brilliance of Browne slotting three vital points, two from play. The see-saw pattern did not end there however as Rice College once again raised a green flag. The Cashel men would be really put to the pin of their collar when their lead was cut to two through two further points leaving the score 2-13 to 3-8. One thing this Cashel side has shown so far in the campaign however is they have tremendous character. This came to the fore again as their back line thundered out with ball after ball in the closing stages and their forwards did the job at the other end accounting for the last four points to see them run out six point winners. This win was born out of the Tipperary team’s greater consistency of work rate throughout the game. The Ennis defenders were chased and put under consistent pressure in possession which denied their forwards quality deliveries. Stephen Browne and the selfless Fearghail O’Donoghue lead the charge in this regard. Their other half line was equally impressive giving Cashel a strong foothold in the opening period and shoring up to see them over the line. Some lung-busting runs from Lorcan Carr and some tenacious defending from Conor O’Dwyer standing out. Overall they were value for their win and will now face either St. Joseph’s Tulla or Colaiste Chriost Ri in a quarter final on the second Wednesday in January. Cashel team: Christopher Geraghty, Ben Loughman, Tomás Bourke, Jamie Duncan, Conor O’Dwyer, John Ryan, Lorcan Carr, Aaron Moloney(1-1), Liam McGrath (0-1), Jack O’Rourke, Stephen Browne(0-2), Fearghail O’Donoghue, Riain Quigley(1-1), Jack McGrath(0-2), Aaron Browne(0-9, 3 frees). Subs: Euan Ryan for Bourke, Ben Ryan for O’Rourke, John Marnane (0-1) for O’Donoghue and David Sinclair for Moloney. Also; Jack Currivan, Páiric Brosnan, Reuben Bourke, Brian Og O’Dwyer, Ciarán Moroney, Mark Casey and Conor Farrell.
