Young Scientists

Three students from 2nd year were selected to take part in this year's Young Scientist Competition in Dublin in early January. Their project looked at the amount of time spend online and whether this improved teenagers knowledge of internet safety. Here they are meeting Minister Patrick O Donovan.

Charity and Community Spirit in CII

The true meaning of Christmas has been made abundantly clear in Abbeyfeale. For the past number of weeks, the fifth year Home Economics students of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef together with their teacher Mrs Meade have participated in a major food appeal to help the St. Vincent de Paul society. The students collected the food items for the hampers throughout November and December from the school community of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef.

The donated foods contributed to the production of 80 fabulous food hampers which have been donated to the local charity. The hampers consisted of essential food items as well as some luxury treats which will no doubt be a welcomed gift for many deserving families this festive season.

The students would especially like to take this opportunity to express their extreme gratitude to local shops for their generous support, in particular Twohig’s Supervalu, Moss Harnett, O’Donoghues and Tesco Abbeyfeale along with McLernons and Roberts Pharmacy in Limerick who supported the appeal. The beautiful hampers will be distributed by St. Vincent de Paul to families who are in need this Christmas time

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.
