Celtic boss: “In the second half they were just a different team”

Speaking after their disappointing 4-1 defeat to North End United in the last 16 of the FAI Junior Cup, Celtic manager Celtic Eoghan Donnellan admitted that the visitors were “far better” than his side in the second half.

“In the first half I thought we were well in the game,” he said. “We went in at half time 1-0 up and I suppose the only unfortunate thing was that we didn’t get a second goal. But in the second half they were just a different team.

“They’re a top class side. They have a lot of experience, a lot of guys in their late 20s… They’re a very strong team physically, very quick and very good in transition.”

Celtic don’t have much time to lick their wounds. On Saturday afternoon they’ll face Waterford Crystal away in the 5th round of the Munster Junior Cup and the Celtic boss says it’s sure to be a difficult one.

“It’s a tough game. They’re a really good side and they’ll be hard to beat at home. It’s always difficult after a defeat to pull yourself up again for the next weekend.”

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
