It was an occasion to dress up as it was one of the biggest nights of their lives so far when Killarney Community College (KCC) students said farewell to school life for good.

Last Thursday, the Class of 2022 came to the end of their KCC journey with an emotional graduation ceremony in the school hall which was streamed live via Zoom to those unable to attend.

Principal Stella Loughnane stated how proud she was of this particular group of students, how the adversities they overcame will stand to them in the future and most importantly encouraged everyone to follow their dreams.

Students Ethan McKeon and Tia McNabb gave an entertaining speech full of emotion, nostalgia and praise for their time in the school.

And it wouldn't be a grad ceremony without the annual student awards.

The roll of honour and award winners were as follows:

Student of the Year went to Tia McNabb, while the Principal's Award was given to Daniel S T, School Ethos Caithlin McEnteggart, Contribution to Life of the School Ethan McKeon, and the Carmella Sheehy Bursary was received by Tadhg Quinn.

The students were treated to lunch kindly provided by the school and the culinary genius that is Noel. They hung around afterwards to take photos with loved ones, friends and teachers.

"Well done to the main organisers especially Ms O'Riordan, Fr Niall for his usual words of wisdom, Ms Huges and our wonderful choir to give the Class of 2022 the best send off ever," Principal Stella Loughnane said.

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
