Knockout stages in soccer

Colaiste Ide agus Iosef progress to knockout stages of FAI Schools Munster Senior Cup

The U/19 senior soccer team from Colaiste Ide agus Iosef has qualified for the knockout stages of the Munster Senior Cup by coming second in their four team group.

Their campaign began with a home game against Hazelwood College of Drumcollogher which ended in a hard fought 1-1 draw. Next up was an away fixture to Tarbert Comprehensive where the Abbeyfeale team were beaten 2-0 in very tough conditions.  The final group game was a must win against Intermediate School Kilorglin. This was a match that the players knew was make or break for their ambitions of progressing further in the competition. They delivered with a strong and composed 5-2 victory.

The players have demonstrated great determination and work rate to get to this stage of the competition and next up is an away trip to Mercy Mounthawk of Tralee, to be played on the Kerry District Leagues all-weather pitch.

A special thanks to Abbeyfeale FC for the continued support and use of their facilities.

 

 

Shakespeare Lives

 

Colaiste Ide agus Iosef were delighted to be part of the "Shakespeare Lives" travelling exhibition in October. A special display  on actor Kenneth Brannagh and his participation in Shakespeare was on display in GP Area. The school was one of a handful of schools from throughout island of Ireland to get this exhibition in 2107/18.  Students studying Shakepeare in the school got additional material along with  seeing the exhibition and the opportunity to access material specially organised by the British Council.

 These resources included #Shakespearenofilters retelling of Romeo and Juliet and a popular mix the play which allowed them to direct two scenes from Shakepeare plays online

Basketball round up

An exciting month of Basketball in the school saw the senior Girls Basketball team get to play the Quarter finals of the Under 19 A National Cup in the school hall. Unfortunately on the day they were defeated by a strong Colaiste an Phiarsaigh from Glanmire who boasted three Irish Internationals in the squad. The team coached by teacher Niall Twomey had defeated teams from Donegal and Dublin in their path to the quarter final stage.

 

The final major outing of the month saw our senior basketballers hit the courts for charity. The team took part in the Pieta house charity event in Listowel. Great day out and Abbeyfeale lost narrowly in the final to teachers of St Michaels College, Listowel.
