Our Transition Year students attended Claremorris Equestrian Centre every Wednesday for the last few weeks. It was the first time horse riding for nearly all the students and proved to be great fun and a very rewarding experience. Thanks to all the staff in the centre who were extremely helpful and supportive.

The boys A team beat Claregalway in Round 1 and advanced to the quarterfinals, where they lost to Dunmore, despite playing very well.
The boys B team were disappointed to lose out against a strong Colemans C team in the first round, but enjoyed a convincing win in a challenge match against Claregalway later on.
The boys C team won their first round match against Sligo’s Summerhill, but were outplayed by Colemans’ B team in the quarters.
The greatest success was enjoyed by the girls who won their first round match against the Mercy Roscommon, followed by a resounding win in the quarters against Sacred Heart, Westport. They were eventually defeated in the semis by a skilful Dunmore A team.
We returned to BCS a happy bunch, eager for further practice and matches. Mr Shannon
