Fun Run 2019
Fun Run 2019
In spite of the wet weather, the 2019 Fun Run took place on Friday October 25th. For the first time in its existence the venue was changed from Shanganagh Park to the school campus due to the poor wet weather. The students involved in the organisation were excellent when asked to adapt to the contingency of staging the run on the schools grounds at short notice. Well done to all involved on reacting so well to the change of venue. Even though the weather was poor, student enthusiasm and participation was high. This was reflected by the €1250 fundraised from the €5 entry fee to take part. The funds raised were donated to the four different charity partners; Irish Aid, Vision Sports Ireland, Irish Wheelchair Association and Christmas Hamper appeal. Well done to all those bravely participated in spite of the poor weather and their generous donations. For the students that were keen to compete, there three races within the Fun Run; senior boys’, girls’ and junior boys’. Congratulations to Conor Murphy on winning the senior boys’ race, Eve O’Brien on winning the girls’ race and Nathan O’Shea on winning the junior boys’ race. The whole school community look forward to the 2020 edition of the Fun Run and wish for improved weather conditions so it can return to the Shanganagh Park venue.

Before the Storm

Eldhose Alias


Sure it’s all a hoax anyway.

All this global warming business.


A conspiracy by the elite few

Dead set on destroying jobs.


That’s what they are- Elite-

Or so they think. But we can smell


The BS a mile away. Apparently, my fridge

Is going to ‘deplete the ozone layer’’


And kill us all with them UV rays.

Seen Sci- Fi movies with better plots.


Imagine the headlines on the tabloids:

‘Man Stabs Earth Bleeding With Fridge.’


Better yet, think of all the songs that’ll be written:

‘Fridge Killed the Ozone Laya…’


Can’t wait

For the bloody thing to happen already.
