CCS Pupils Take on The Top Table

Claire Byrne Show

The Top Table / Claire Byrne Show photo album

On Monday 12th November twenty-three senior students, mostly from the 5th year Politics class, travelled to Dublin where they visited the Dáil and participated in the audience of the Claire Byrne Live show. The group was also accompanied by one of our local County Councillors, Martin Mc Dermott. As it turned out, the Claire Byrne Live show was a Brexit special. Claire Byrne was hosting the Nolan show in Belfast and Stephen Nolan was hosting the Claire Byrne show in Dublin.

The students observed the heated debates that took place between the politicians and though several students submitted questions, Katie Durey from 6th year was given the opportunity to ask her question live on air, challenging Jim Allister on his party's position regarding Brexit. The following day the students received an invitation from the BBC and Stephen Nolan, inviting them to participate in the audience of The Top Table show in Belfast. On Wednesday 21st November the students travelled to the show where again they observed yet another heated debate. This time it was Ódhran Cavanagh and Keith Watson who had the opportunity to put their questions forward.

The students have gained valuable insights not only into Politics and Society but also into the intricacies of working on live TV. Both RTE and the BBC commended our pupils on their willingness to participate in the debate.

Match report by Carndonagh Community school's no. 1 sports correspondant, Liam Mooney (5C)

The game started poorly and that was matched by the lines on the pitch that were done the previous day by Kieran Farren and Jake Harkin. In the opening exchanges Carn made several dodgy passes, especially from Nathan Logue who seemed to forget who he played for. Deele made a couple of contentious tackles but Rudden managed to match this with a pretty tasty tackle himself. Controversy struck midway through the half when linesman Darragh O’Connor failed to raise his flag for a CCS throw in (it’s unlikely he will ever get that job again).
