SCOIL MHUIRE ATHLETICS NEWS

On Wednesday 10th February the Leinster Schools Cross Country Championships 2016 took place in Morton Stadium, Santry, Dublin. The event marked the 53rd running of the Leinster Schools Cross Championships for Boys and the 46th occasion for girls, who started in 1970.

There were over 40 schools represented in the Minor Girls U14 race with Teams and individuals.  Ali Sherlock represented Scoil Mhuire, and ran a strong race to come in 41st out of 102 runners. This was Ali’s first time competing in the Leinsters, so well done to Ali.

In the Junior U15 race, there were over 40 schools represented also with Teams and individuals competing.  Aisling McCabe ran this 2,000m race and came in 21st out of 94 runners.  The first 15 runners qualified for the All Ireland Schools Cross Country Chapmpionships.  Aisling was only 6 away from qualifying.  She ran a very strong first lap staying in position of 13th place, but her second lap pushed her back a little.  This was also Aisling’s first time competing in the Leinster Schools Cross Country Championships.

 

Well done to Ali and Aisling for great performances from both of them.

 

German Debating

Scoil Mhhuire’s German debating team was narrowly defeated in their 3rd round debate against St.Finian’s College, Mullingar. Despite having the “Best speaker” in Mercy Oladipo and having convincing and well thought out arguments, the proposing team managed to secure their passage to the next round with an enthusiastic and polished performance. Well done to all involved. We’ll be back again next year. Team photo: Lauren  Fagan (capt.), Sarah Savage, Niamh Costello, Mercy Oladipo and Ciara Duignan (sub.).Mentor: Mr.D.Kajic

Irish Debating Team

The Irish Debating Team competed in the Craobh Réigiúnach of Gael Linn Comórtas Uí Phiarsaigh on Tuesday 26th January. It was held in the hallowed grounds of Scoil Éanna Rathfarnham in the main hall that in the past heard the voices of W.B. Yeats and Patrick Pearse amongst others. Unfortunately the girls were pipped at the post with one mark between them and the winners (Sandford Park) who go onto represent their school in the All Ireland finals. The team of Ruth Sherlock, Anna Murphy, Rose Higgins and Tara Canny (pictured), debated passionately against the motion 'ba cheart deireadh a chuir le cuotaí inscne'.  Their mentor, Ms Irene Heffernan is extremely proud of their performance and their dedication to the competition.
