Abbeyfeale win in Munster Post Primary Blitz

Two teams of footballers from Colaiste Ide agus Iosef participated in a Munster Post Primary blitz last week. The 22 footballers under the guidance of their teachers, Catherina O Callaghan and Julia Kennedy competed in the day long competition against 60 other teams from all over Munster.

Women's Rugby World Cup in the school

Students and staff at Colaiste Ide agus Iosef, Abbeyfeale got to see the Women's Rugby World Cup up close on Thursday of last week as the trophy visited the school in advance of this summers tournament which will be held in Ireland. The visit coincided with a major second year rugby blitz which saw almost 100 students playing rugby on the school's playing pitch. The school recently won Munster honours in senior rugby for girls and this team were also photographed with the trophy.

National Film Award

On the 2nd of March, a team of four filmmakers from the school going under the name Fionners won the “Best Interpretation” Award in the Youth For Decent Work Film Competition. The awards were presented at a gala event and screening in Screen One of the Savoy Cinema, Dublin. The competition in its fourth year attracted over 150 teams from all over Ireland. Each one had to make a three minute short film that addressed the theme 1916-2016, workers rising to the challenge.

 

Three teams from Colaiste Ide agus Iosef who had all reached the final stages of the competition travelled to the screenings in Dublin. There they got to join an audience of several hundred students and teachers who got to see the films on the big screen before the winners of the four categories were announced. Each announcement by Aonghus Og McAnally was greeted by great sense of anticipation in the auditorium and there was delight amongst the Abbeyfeale contingent when Fionners were announced as winners in the “Best Interpetion”. Their three minute short entitled “The rebels fought the system, while the cleaners fought the dirt” looked at 100 years of Irish history from the perspective of a cleaner. In an unexpected bonus, internationally renowned film director Jim Sheridan turned up to meet all the category winners.

 

This was the fourth year of the awards and in each of the previous competitions at least one team from Abbeyfeale has reached the final awards ceremony. However, the Fionners team (made up of students Alanna Collins, Ella Fitzgerald, Louise Hartnett and Diane O’Connor with teacher mentor Shane Curtin) were the first to ever win a category award.
