National Gallery / National Museum Fourth Year Trip photo album
On Tuesday, 3rd May, Fourth Year Art pupils visited both the National Gallery and the National Museum in Dublin. Despite some disruption in the National Gallery due to the highly anticipated Da Vinci Exhibition, the pupils were treated to an impressive display of fine Irish and European works. In the National Museum, the pupils got a close-up view of Ireland's most impressive archaeological finds. The experience of both the Gallery and the Museum will be of significance when the Leaving Cert finally arrives, so the notebooks and clipboards were out in numbers. Overall, it was an enjoyable and educational afternoon for the pupils. The trip was coordinated by Mrs. McDermott and Ms. McGee.

The CCS team emerged the victors, for the second year running, in a very close contest, played out at Dunfanaghy Golf Club on Friday, 6th May. In glorious sunshine, all the finalists were still in the hunt for the title as the last few cards were handed in.
Carndonagh's Conor McColgan proved the difference, with a magnificent individual score of 41 points, enough to clinch the title for CCS and secure for himself the individual winner's prize. The CCS team was an example of consistency, with all the boys scoring in the 30s.
Team Captain, Scott McElhinney, showed he will have little difficulty playing off his new 7 handicap. Team stalwarts, Ben Collins, Stephen McGonigle and DJ Mc Geoghan will surely be destined for lower single figure handicaps by the end of the summer. Ryan McLaughlin and Oisin McGonigle will be feared by every team next year, as we watch their handicaps tumble. Recognition also goes to Conor Quigley who was unavailable to play in the final.
Congratulations to all the boys!
