Niall Mellon Volunteers

House Builders 2011

The Community School’s team for the Niall Mellon Building Blitz 2011 was announced on last Friday. Eighteen Fifth Year students had successfully completed the preliminary rounds in the application process and on Friday they each met with a panel of five interviewers. All interviewees impressed the panel greatly.

At the end of the day, the six students lucky enough to be chosen were named :

Rachel Fahy (Cashel/Rosegreen),

Ereena Fryday (Knockavilla/Donaskeigh),

Paddy Morrissey (Cashel/Rosegreen),

Tom Mulcahy (Boherlahan/Dualla),

Mark O’Brien (Cahir &New Inn/Knockgraffon),

Roisin Trehy (Killenaule/Moyglass).


They will be accompanied to South Africa by two teachers: Ms. Tracy Gibson and Mr. Brendan Ryan.

The six students, with the hands-on assistance of their fellow Fifth Years, will now swing into major fundraising activities. Any and all support from the wider community will be greatly appreciated.
