“GALLEN CS GIRLS GO FOR GLORY IN ALL IRELAND CUP U 16 BASKETBALL SEMI FINAL”
Gallen CS U 16 basketball team bid to emulate the team of 2003 who
reached the national decider as they take on Colaiste Pobail Inbhear
Sceine Kenmare in the penultimate stage of the u 16 Cup competition,
next Thursday January 10th at 12pm in the University of Limerick Sports Arena.
This team under the guidance of coach Ms Josephine Mc Keogh have been hard at work training over the Christmas period putting in a training session in school on the 27th Dec and playing a team from the Bower Athlone on the 4th January. Buoyed by their fantastic comeback in the quarter final where they came from 20-14 down to defeat St Aloysius Carrigtwohill, Cork 28-25, hopes will be high that the girls can do themselves and the school proud. Good luck girls.

Young Scientist Competition
We want to wish Celine Camon and Emma Phelan the very best of luck with their project in the Young Scientist Exhibition starting January 9th in the RDS. Both Emma and Celine are experienced horse riders and their love of all things equine has extended to this project which investigates the effects of using different “Bits” on a horse’s performance. Their enthusiasm and hard work over the last number of months deserves recognition. We wish the girls and their teacher, Ms Hopkins who has guided them in their work the best of luck next week.
