TY Italy 2016

The transition years and their teachers had a terrific trip to Italy this Easter, plenty of sightseeing and fun!

The Dublin Region of the anti drugs unit came to the school to talk to transition year students and leaving certificate applied students. The students were very impressed at how quickly their dogs were able to sniff out the drugs they had planted. The dog made his way through the crowd of boys in the hall until they found what they were looking for.

Athletes retain All-Ireland Senior title in Sligo

After an arduous training regime that pushed the athletes to the limits of their physical performance, the school's athletes headed for the picturesque surroundings of Sligo Racecourse to defend the All-Ireland title they worked so hard to win in 2015.

And the team did not disappoint, unleashing a stunning performance that not only captured the title, but also saw the team awarded the Brother Clarke Trophy, awarded to Ireland's best team.

The team was led home by Cathal Doyle (6th), Brian Flanagan(7th), Adam O' Brien  (13th), Seán Carrigg (23rd) with the pack of Joseph Hession, Alex Gibbons, Gregory Hossenny and Thomas Ward powering behind the front four men.

Conditions were cold and windy, with the underfoot sticky, but the team were trained to deal with anything that nature could throw at them.

And as the wind blasted down from the slopes of Benbulben, the result was announced and the team punched the air for joy.

The team were inspired by the performance of the Intermediate team who were very unlucky not to sneak a medal after finishing 4th. This was a superb result for a team dogged with injury and illness over the past month.

And if that was not enough, Cathal Doyle, Brian Flanagan and Seán O' Leary were handed Irish caps, following in the footsteps of past Aidan's Irish Internationals.  

And now the teams attention turns to the track. And some guys are talking of a three-in-a-row next March. Surely not! With these men of steel, anything is possible.

A huge thank you to all the support that our fantastic local club, Clonliffe Harriers have given us over the past 6 months. We could not have reached the promised land without that support. And a huge thank you to all the parent that came out to cheer us on. Together, we are one team.
