Excellent performances on the day from Hannah O’Keefe (6th year), Taylor Murphy(4th year) and Catriona Fuchs (4th year).

Top scorers:
Claudia Kearney (10 points)

The girls wish to thank Ms.Alley for all her work this season.

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims

Last Sunday, the victims of road collisions were remembered.We were asked to consider our behaviour on the roads as a mark of respect to those who have lost their lives on Ireland`s roads.23,596 people have died on Irish roads since records began in 1959.A further 76,586 have received serious,life-changing injuries.Already in 2014 200 families,friends and communities have lost a loved one.

We pray for those who have died on our roads and those who grieve for them.We pray for those who have suffered injury as a result of a road crash;those who have suffered permanent injury,and those who care for them;those who have lost confidence and who are unable to use the roads without anxiety.

We pray for protection in all our travels along the road`s way.

THINKING OUT LOUD

Throughout each day there will be moments that are just beginning and others that are simply closing.It can sometimes be good and healthy to close the door on some things in our lives,such as mistakes,regrets and guilt.It is even healthier to welcome today as a new beginning.It`s not about making it perfect.It`s about doing my best,being open to the blessings that will come my way and maximising the little moments that can make each day special.We pray and give thanks for these moments that make today special
