An impressive feat of two out of three became the remarkable feat of three out of four as the senior soccer men lifted the Dr. Tony O'Neill Cup on Wednesday, 20th March. Guided by Mr. Martin Cavanagh and his diligent assistant, Liam Mooney, the boys in blue were able to break down a powerhouse Midleton outfit, who made half a dozen attempts to ruin the day from about 25 yards. Padraig O'Donnell had a big day between the sticks. The back four were absolutely on top of things and the rest of the lads conjured up a delightful goal that eventually sealed the deal. The video highlights, which will be available on Friday evening, will tell the rest of the story. As captain Kieran Farren was quick to point out during the speeches...this one's for Liam Monagle...Champions of Ireland again!
Wellbeing Week took place in Carndonagh Community School from Monday 11th to Friday 15th February 2019 and was marked by a number of activities throughout the week. The five ways to wellbeing were used as the main theme for the various activities.

Student Council Representatives addressed students with various messages over the school intercom daily. Events varied from ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ for 3rd year students and staff, talks for senior students, a ‘PositiviTEA' party for all 1st years as well as a ‘Mindful Mile’ walk for all 2nd year students. A Spinning Bike challenge was organised by Mr. Sam Bogan as part of Schools Go Orange. SPHE teachers also centred their lessons around Wellbeing.

An exciting and tense encounter was played out in the Showgrounds, Sligo Rovers FC this afternoon as Carndonagh Community School came from three goals down to take the win 4-3 from a dejected St. Louis CS, Kiltimagh with only a minute remaining.
The Connacht Champions had a whirlwind start to the big clash which saw them three one up at the interval but a purple patch from the Donegal stronghold late on saw them clinch the victory.
