The National Mock Trial Competition was held in the Criminal Courts of Justice on Saturday, 5th April 2014. The team comprised 18 students - 4 barristers/1 solicitor (Emer Sweeney, Mary Doherty, Martin Fiorentini and Brendan Diver), a tipstaff/registrar (Kate Devlin), 1 defendant (Claire Doherty), 5 witnesses (Éimear Toland, Ciaran White, Danielle McLaughlin), one Garda (Shay Rodgers) and one elderly lady, a Mrs Sammy Black (Mary Devlin)! (And of course wee Charlie!) We would like to extend our gratitude to Garda Séan McLaughlin who very kindly lent us his uniform. We won't mention any names, in case we get him into trouble! Oops!!! There were also 3 full-time jurors (Shauna Craig, Claire Friel and Karen Mathews), a court reporter (Ella McDaid), a TV reporter (Hannah McColgan), a court room artist (Aisling O'Kane) and a court room photographer (Aimée Moore). The students owe a huge debt of gratitude to Mr. Donal McGuinness B.L. for his advice and his time on the eve of the competition. Thank you, Donal! All the pupils gave 100% - barristers and witnesses alike! You did us proud!
Tuesday, 6th May - Not content with an Ulster Cup, the First Year boys soccer squad have now secured a berth in the All-Ireland First Year Soccer Final. Under the unrivalled mentorship of Mr. Liam Monagle, the lads have steamrolled the opposition so far this season, culminating in a 3-0 victory in the All-Ireland semi-final against Coláiste Rís, Dundalk. The Final will take place on Wednesday, 14th May against either De La Salle College, Waterford or Calasanctius College, Oranmore (Venue TBA). We've watched enough football over the years to avoid complacency...but we dare to dream!
Carndonagh Community School has earned a very good Junk Kouture reputation over several years. But on Friday, 2nd May, CCS hit new heights in the competition. With three entries remaining in the Northern Section of the Grand Final - Tickled by Metallic Glamour, La Fraca and Blonde Ambition - there was always a good chance of a favourable result. But there were scenes of absolute joy among the CCS pupils and staff in attendance when the results were announced. La Fraca 2nd AND......Tickled by Metallic Glamour 1st! The 1-2 result (from four initial entries) was a well deserved seal of approval for a year of hard work and late evenings from the pupils. With that said, high achievement in competitions like Junk Kouture wouldn't be possible without the expert guidance of staff members, and in the case of CCS, take a bow Mrs. Adelle McCallion, Ms. Michelle McGee and Mrs. Pauline McDermott. Huge congratulations to all involved this year. The winning dress, "Tickled by Metallic Glamour", along with Roisin Doherty (Model), Sinead McGonigle and Annemarie Brennan, will feature on the Saturday Night Show (tonight, 3rd May). Junk Kouture 2014 will certainly be a hard act to follow!

U18 Girls Rugby...Donegal Champions Once Again! (Apologies to the girls and the manager for the LATE press release.) The team travelled to Letterkenny on Friday, 4th April, after short notice of the blitz. Final preparations were made on Wednesday afternoon with a good, fun training session. The girls played Magh Ene College from Bundoran in the first match. For the whole match CCS kept their opponents inside their 22. On three occasions CCS should have scored, but due to ball handling errors and being held up over the line, the match ended 0-0. The players ran very confidently with ball in hand and loved going into contact and tackling.
