It was a busy summer for Coláiste Naomh Cormac students with their various activities. At the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in Mullingar CNC students Aideen and Caoimhe Quinn and Orla and Ciara Kilmartin became All-Ireland Champions in 4-hand Céílí Dancing. They were also runners-up in the 8-hand Céilí dancing team with CNC students: Róisín Monaghan, Elaine Lynch, Elizabeth Kilmartin and their teammate Megan. Congratulations to the girls and the teacher Anne and Ballyboy CCÉ.

In the sporting world our students had great success with their club and county teams. Coláiste Naomh Cormac were delighted to hear that 6th year students James Mahon and Adam Screeney have been named as part of the Electric Ireland Minor Hurling Team of the Year for their contributions during the minor season with Offaly. Adam Screeney has also been named as ‘Minor Hurler of the Year’ for his gutsy performances throughout the championship. Well done to them and their club Kilcormac/Killoughey GAA.
