THE Spa senior ladies ended their league campaign with an impressive win over Austin Stacks. The girls started well, keeping the Tralee side to three scores for 25 minutes in the first half. Spa were definitely the stronger team in the first half, leading 2-6 to 1-3.

In the second half, however, Stacks started from the throw-in, scoring 1-2 before they settled with great points from Mairead Finnegan and Ciara Moynihan. Brilliant saves from Linda Bruggener kept Spa in the game with excellent defence work from Elizabeth Stack, Mairead Bennett and captain Katie O’Brien. Stacks managed to draw the game once but Spa’s Cassandra Buckley and Loretta Maher lorded the centre and kept vital possession.

Spa held the narrowest of margins to claim the Division 3 title. The club will be promoted to Division 2 next year and also Junior A, after its recent wins.

Spa clinched three titles in 2017 and paid tribute to its management team of Tim O’Connor and Donal O’Doherty for their time and dedication and thanked the supporters who cheered on the ladies throughout the year.

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.”
