Cathal, Sam and Mr. Cavanagh Feature in Senior Soccer Ad Campaign

Cathal Farren, Sam Todd and Mr. Martin Cavanagh have just gone primetime, having appeared on Bank of Ireland's advert for the senior soccer season. The polished ad features three Irish Internationals (Richard Keogh, Alex Pearce and Wes Hoolahan), possibly a couple of future Internationals, AND of course one ex-International! The Inishowen lads refused to do any interviews, claiming to have used up all their cliches on the way down. At the end of the day, it's all about the football...

Senior Soccer Season Launched by All-Ireland Champs

Senior Soccer Abbotstown

On Tuesday, 30th August, Mr. Martin Cavanagh, Sam Todd and Cathal Farren travelled to the FAI's training HQ in Abbotstown, Dublin. Their itinerary for the afternoon included a meet-and-greet with the senior Irish squad and management. As guests of Bank of Ireland they officially launched the BoI sponsored FAI Schools Dr. Tony O'Neill Cup, currently in the hands of Carndonagh CS. There were whispers that a certain Mr. Keane was quietly looking for some managerial advice, but you'll have to ask Mr. Cavanagh about that...The boys certainly enjoyed the experience. They're pictured with Richard Keogh, Wes Hoolahan and Alex Pearce. Wes Hoolahan was overheard saying that you don't have to be tall to be a great footballer.

On Wednesday afternoon, 25th May, one of the country's most highly-rated sportsmen visited CCS for the Annual Sports Awards. The "Man From the Glen" addressed all the pupils involved in school sports. During his speech, Michael reiterated the key ingridient for his development as an individual and a sportsperson...Focus. He advised young people to surround themselves with positivity and to concentrate fully on the matter at hand, at that moment in time, whether it's sport or study. There is no better role model for our pupils than Michael Murphy and we would like to thank him for his visit and his inspirational words.
