Thomond Trip to see Maoris

On Friday the 11th November, the first year rugby girls were treated to an adventure they won't forget in a hurry as they travelled to Thomond Park to watch Munster v All Maori Blacks. It was a fairly wet evening but the girls soaked up the atmosphere and got so engrossed in the game that they didn't even notice when the rain was gone. The game became an even more enjoyable memory as Munster won. It was some of the girls first time in Thomond and they were amazed with the crowd, the atmosphere, the venue and just the whole experience of the game. Thanks to Mr. Browne and John Moloney who organised and accompanied the girls on what was another historic night for Munster. 

First Year Camogie blitz

The first year camogie team were victorious in their blitz earlier in October. The girls showed great skill , determination and team spirit throughout the competition and became the first ever camogie team to bring a title to Colaiste Ide agus Iosaf. They defeated Rathkeale, Hospital, Laurel Hill and Gael Colaiste Luimnigh in the final.

Focus Ireland visit

As part of their CSPE Action Project, the 3rd Year Muire class group decided to enhance their understanding of homelessness to enable them to raise awareness of this alarming social problem amongst their peers and the school community of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef. To accomplish this, the class invited a guest speaker Nicki Hyland from the Limerick branch of Focus Ireland to talk to them about homelessness and how Focus Ireland addresses the issue. Nicki delivered an excellent presentation along with highlighting the realities of homelessness by showing students a video interview of a young homeless man. Some of the class then spoke to their fellow students about their action project to raise awareness of the homeless crisis among our school community.

Some of the things the students learned included:

  • There are 6525 people ‘officially homeless’ in Ireland.  
  • Homelessness is a concerning issue facing society today.
  • This figure includes adults and children with their families, the number of families becoming homeless has increased by over 40% since last year and one in three of those in emergency accommodation are now a child.
