TY v Teachers Gaelic Football photo album
The annual TY v Teachers Gaelic football match was played on Friday, 28th September. As expected, the staff (with a little help) showed that age and class go hand in hand, bossing the majority of the game. The pupils only really got to grips with the situation when their ENTIRE squad appeared to take to the pitch for the last five minutes. Nevertheless, when Ref O'Donnell blew the final whistle, it was decided that the staff had won by roughly a point (with emphasis on "roughly"). The actual scoreline may never be known. So, another year, another victory for the staff team, who would like to thank the "substitute teachers" who helped to make up the numbers on the day. Best wishes to Mr. Joe Higgins, who has played his last match for the staff. The man will not be easily replaced, although we assume he'll come out of retirement one last time...every year! The pupils must now wait until the annual soccer match to redeem themselves...Good luck with that, folks!

PHOTO ALBUM - Carndonagh CS Annual Sports Awards 2018
On Friday, 11th May, the Áras welcomed the most successful group of athletes ever assembled in CCS for the Annual Sports Awards. With the stage weighed down by silverware, a conveyor belt of teams and individuals took to the stage for certificates, medals and mementos recognising their many and varied achievements. Treasa Doherty - past-pupil, Donegal Football star and Carn woman - was on hand to do the presenting. She outlined the values that are critical to achievement at the top level, highlighting 'dedication' as key to getting the best out of yourself, regardless of silverware. She did lament the lack of Saturday lie-ins. But such sacrifices must be made! Members of the Senior Boys Soccer squad (once again National Champions) and the Mackey Cup winning Gaelic Football squad were each presented with a display photo for the mantlepiece. There were Ulster titles all over the place with First Year soccer and futsal (boys and girls) taking many of the plaudits. Some big futures there. (Remember, DEDICATION!)...The afternoon was rounded off with the ‘Inishowen Tours Outstanding Prospect in Sport Award'. The worthy recipient of that prestigious accolade was Daniel Houghton, now a two-time National senior boys soccer champion and an International goalkeeper. We'll endeavour to publish the full list of titles secured throughout the year, if we can remember them all. Overall, 2017-18 will be remembered as the most successful year to date for sport in CCS.
