Aoife and Niamh Highly Commended Despite Narrow Defeat

Commiserations to Aoife McColgan and Niamh McDaid who represented Donegal in the Division 1 Final on Sunday, 7th May. The girls were part of a hugely valiant effort to dethrone perennial champions Cork. The Rebels were on the back foot for large parts of the contest, but eventually pulled through by a solitary point. Donegal may have lost the battle, but in our eyes the CCS girls are an inspiration to all young players, both boys and girls, in CCS. The commitment and dedication that the two girls put in all year helped them to get this far. They are a credit to the school. It was great for the local supporters who turned up in Dublin on Sunday to chat with the girls after the match. They were obviously very disappointed, but were also philosophical in defeat, demonstrating the true sporting attitude they possess. It's back to the study books for both girls now as they prepare for the Leaving Cert in a few weeks' time...

The school came out tops in a category including Abbey Voc., Coláiste Cholmcille, Loreto Letterkenny and Scoil Mhuire Buncrana. 2016 certainly was a standout year for CCS.

There was silverware in golf, and advances in rugby, Gaelic football, camogie and cross-country running. Mr. John McGuinness accepted the award on behalf of everyone who contributed to and participated in sports in CCS throughout 2016. Also to be honoured on the night were current Third Year pupil Lughán Devenny (Under-15 Sportshall Athletics Team) and past pupil Labhaoise Clarke (Special Recognition - Boxing).

Success for CCS at Donegal Camogie Blitz

Congratulations to the CCS camogie teams that participated in the Donegal Camogie Blitz in Letterkenny recently. The girls finished first and third in their respective competitions. The clash of the ash is back! The re-emergence of camogie in CCS is an exciting prospect and great credit must go to their manager, Mrs. Anita Doherty. Well done girls!

The U16 GAA Story So Far...

New GAA Kit CCS

The U-16 GAA team has had a very successful run in their section in Donegal this year and has progressed to the quarter-final stage of the Arthurs Cup Competition. They face Belfast opposition in Owenbeg, Dungiven on Thursday at 11:30am. Rathmore Grammar School meet the CCS boys who have impressed in their performances so far. CCS beat Falcarragh in the first game by a comfortable 6-21 to 3-04 scoreline. The second game was also played away from home and Milford provided much stiffer opposition, CCS winning again on a 3-18 to 5-06 final score. Two home games gave the boys two more confidence building victories, scoring 5-20 against Gweedore and conceding 2-03, while the game against St.Columbas, Stranorlar ended with a 2-18 to 3-08 victory. We wish the boys good luck in their Ulster campaign.
