If all goes well on Sunday, Donegal fans could be up for one more match...The All-Ireland Final! For that dream to materialise, the Minors will have to be at their very best to beat Dublin in Sunday's opener. County corner-back and past-pupil, Danny Monagle knows what it takes on the big stage according to Mr. John Farren, his underage manager at CCS. "Danny, pound for pound, is probably the most tenacious, tough and determined defender I've seen in a long time, and he ABSOLUTELY hates losing...A great quality!" If the rest of the panel can live up to that, it could be a big day for the Green and Gold! We wish Danny all the best.

The Annual John Doherty Memorial Walk took place this year in Clonmany, where colleagues, friends and past-pupils of John Doherty walked to the picturesque Glenevin Waterfall. John is remembered as an avid hill-walker who had a great regard for the locality of Inishowen. John is always missed and never forgotten by the ramblers of Carndonagh Community School.
Our CCS "magnificent seven" TY Water Group deserve a big cheer. They are Luke Mc Elroy, Brendan Diver, Chelsea Stevens, Kate Devlin, Jill Scott, Claire Doherty and Hannah Mc Colgan. They won the People’s Choice Award for best project at the finals of the All-Ireland Young Environmentalists Awards (YEA) held on Tuesday, 20th May 2014 in the Mansion House in Dublin. The ceremony was covered by RTÉ with Government ministers, radio celebrities, the Lord Mayor and the Head of ECO-UNESCO all in attendance. Our group were a credit to CCS with great professionalism throughout. Their project showed that, with the exception of added fluoride, tap water in Ireland is just as good a quality as leading brands of bottled waters. It also raised awareness of the large environmental impact of bottled water.
