Principal Kevin McCarthy met with students to distribute results and believes that the vast majority would receive their first choice in CAO application. He commended the hard work of the teaching staff who once more went well beyond their roles to maintain the standards of the school. He believed that the 40% of all LC candidates who achieved 25% bonus for Honours Maths was a major contributory in many students once more reaching the 500 point mark. He pointed out that students in the school have topped the 600 point mark in 6 of the last 7 years.

The repeat Leaving Certificate programme is a tried and tested aspect of school life. This years repeat students increased their points total by on average of 80 points with two increasing by over 100 points each in keeping with recent years. We are pleased with the manner in which students showed humility in celebrating their achievement and we wish all an enjoyable night when they head off as a group of friends to celebrate their school debs in Maynooth next week.

The school is also celebrating the achievements of some of its past pupils. The school would like to wish past pupils Brendan Maher, Seamus Callanan, Paddy Stapleton, James Woodlock and Gearoid Ryan the best in upcoming hurling endeavour. We are delighted to acknowledge showjumper Greg Broderick on the recent AgaKhan success and will be supporting Marie Ryan in her bid to become Rose of Tralee.

The co-ed mix of small class sizes and unique rural ethos provides an excellent environment for young people to develop their social and academic potential.
