Laura Davis competed in the MOS Four Nations Championship final in Dublin on Wednesday 10th May. Laura qualified for the competition based on her achievement in her MOS exams in TY. On the day, she scored a very high result of 900/1000. While the result was excellent unfortunately but she didn’t win but she did a fantastic job, one which Our Lady’s is very proud of.
Michael Ryan, a past pupil of Our Lady's and manager of the Tipperary Senior Hurling team, was in School recently to officially open the school bank (Bank of Ireland).
While here he spoke to 5th and 6th years about his journey with the Tipperary Senior Hurling team.
He gave a very motivational talk to the group and spoke about the parallels between sport and school life.
He explained how the Tipperary team and management had to slowly begin building up the team. How their success has been based on hard work.
He also gave valuable advice to all of our 6th year students.
'whatever you can do, do it'
Each student can do a lot in next 5-6 weeks, you just need to apply yourself, make a plan, follow it through and simply do your best.
He also reminded students that the Leaving cert will not define you, you may meet some bumps in the road but it is essential that you learn from these mistakes.
Very inspirational words.
Tipperary Track and Field Championship
Our Lady’s accumulated a total of 20 medal winners on Wednesday the 5th of April. Scott Pearson and Michael Ryan got the school off to a flying start with a 1st and 2nd place in the 75m Hurdles. The Minor Girls 100m race was a very competitive field and the cream came to the top with a 2nd and 3rd place finish from Emma Grant and Neassa Towey. Emma also won the Long jump in the Minor age group. Wiktoria Leszuk brought in the first of the throwing medals with two 3rd place medals in the Inter Girls Discus and Shot Putt. Jack Barnett took home bronze in the Junior boys Shot Putt. Henry Fogarty demonstrated a fine run in the Junior Boys 800m to finish 2nd . His hard Cross Country season really stood to him on the last lap. James Maher came 3rd in the Junior Boys Long Jump. He was unable to defend his Gold form last year but still jumped well. Ondrej Olah was our only senior medal winner coming 3rd in the Long Jump.
