IT IS a big weekend on the national stage for the Killarney Athletic AFC U-12 soccer team as they host Johnstown FC from Navan, Co Meath, this Saturday, January 30, at Woodlawn, Killarney at 2pm.
The Killarney side are just one of 32 teams remaining in this prestigious National U12 Schoolboys FAI Cup.
Killarney Athletic have already played three rounds of the National Cup and enjoyed impressive victories in the following games.
On October 3, 2015, Killarney Athletic played Ballingarry, Co Limerick, away and won 5-2.
In the second round, on October 17, 2015, Killarney Athletic played Granagh, Co Limerick, at home and two goals from Conal Gallagher helped them to a 2 -1 victory.
In the third round, on November 21, Killarney Athletic hosted Moneypoint from Clare and won 2-1. Coilte Cronin scored the goal in normal time and Alex Hennigan netted the winner in the extra time period.
John Dineen and Martin Muldoon are in charge of this very talented group of young players. Johnstown are a very fancied side and will present a very formidable challenge. However home advantage is a huge advantage and Killarney Athletic would appreciate all the local support they can get. The game is set to go ahead at Killarney Athletic's Woodlawn venue but may be subject to change to another local venue depending on weather conditions and the state of the pitch.
Killarney Athletic squad: Sam Benson, Cillian Courtney, Sean Dineen, Conal Gallagher, Alex Hennigan, Matthew Horgan, Dara Looney, Mark Long, Cian Lynch, Stephen Moynihan, Teddy Muldoon, Karl McCarthy, David O’Donoghue, Hugh O’Malley, Se O’Meara.

Students in Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra, Rathmore looked to the future as they explored third level opportunities.

The teens took part in a number of activities to mark College Awareness Week which was held in schools and other education settings nationwide last week.

The focus throughout the week in their school was to highlight the wide range of options open to them when they leave school and to realise that there are pathways to suit all types of learners.

Students from First to Sixth Year took part in activities to get them thinking about their future plans.

First and Second year students completed a module on ‘My Pathways’ and Third Years had an introductory talk on options after school.

Transition Year students worked on a display on all the options and pathways available after school which will remain up permanently.

Senior Cycle students attended the Careers Fair in Munster Technological University (MTU) where they got a chance to meet universities, colleges of Further Education, agricultural colleges, apprenticeship and more education and training providers from around the country including past sudent Aidan O’Mahony at the stand with An Garda Síochána.

Leaving Cert and LCA students had a really informative talk in school on Further Education and apprenticeships from Ella O’Donoghue, Admissions Officer of Kerry College.

The week finished with a talk for Senior Cycle students on Business and Law options in UCC by Ian Wallace.

“A highlight of the week was the involvement of past students, who sent us video clips on their career stories so far and shared tips with students,” Niamh Dwyer, Guidance Counsellor at the school, said.

“It was fabulous to see how well our former students have done and it was really important for our current students to see the diversity of pathways they have taken including apprenticeships, Further Education courses, university, travel, setting up businesses and returning to education as mature students. We are really grateful to the past students who reconnected with us for this week, their input was inspiring and invaluable.”

Leaving Certificate students from St Brigid’s returned home Saturday night after a hectic four-day tour to London.

The 87 girls took a tour of London on their first day in the city after landing. They visited some of the famous locations on the journey, such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and Trafalgar Square. They enjoyed a night at the Lyceum Theatre in the West End watching ‘The Lion King’.

The girls went to The Natural History Museum on day two, which has one of the world’s greatest collections of historical artefacts. They took their time looking around the massive cathedral-like structure’s sculptures and frescoes. Four coloured zones that focus on topics including the environment, evolution, the planet, and wildlife make up the museum’s divisions. They then took pleasure in a trip to the fascinating Science Museum. It was the ideal location for someone with an inquisitive mind, full of amazing things to do and explore.

The Victoria and Albert Museum was the next stop on the itinerary. The V&A’s collection of art spans 5,000 years, from prehistoric periods to the modern era. The Mouse Trap, an Agatha Christie play, was the entertainment for this evening at the St Martin’s Lane Theatre. The play’s 70th anniversary was this week.

On day three, the girls boarded a capsule for a 30-minute spin of the London Eye and marvelled at the breath-taking sights of London. After that, they went to the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s Planetarium and Astronomy Centre, where they experienced an amazing adventure through space. They went to the Prime Meridian in Greenwich, planting one foot on the eastern and the other on the western hemisphere of our planet.

The girls ended their evening at what was a highlight for many at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.

On the final day before flying home, the girls went to Oxford Street to do a spot of shopping.

“A great trip was had by all where many memories were made,” said Sheree Murphy, one of the teachers who travelled with them on the trip.
