Congratulations to 6th year students Sean and Chris McCarthy who have both returned to Blarney with Gold medals in the Irish Karate Open held in the National Sports Arena in Dublin on Saturday 22nd September
This morning the SMGS Girls Senior football team travelled up to Charleville to take on SMI Newcastle West. The outcome of the game was a great win and a great start to the season for the girls. At half time it was a level game.
We had the great privilege today of having all three All Ireland Camogie cups in SMGS. The Minor, Intermediate and Senior cup were displayed to a full school assembly by members of the SMGS school community who played on the respective teams.
On Friday May 11th our first year classes loaded up for a day of adventure in the Ballyhass lakes activity centre. To say it was a wet dreary morning would be an understatement! The rain was biblical. We drove through floods and hailstones but remained hopeful that the Met Eireann forecast for the day to brighten would actually materialise.
Last Friday our Second Years went back in history and visited one of Ireland’s medieval gems; Kilkenny City . Following a very wet start we arrived in Kilkenny at 11am and took a very enjoyable train journey around Kilkenny city which highlighted the key historical fortifications of the walled town as well as providing us with a commentary on Kilkenny through the ages
