19/10/2009 LORETO COLLEGE FOUR OUT OF TEN BEAT THE BEST OF THE REST IN GAEL LINN QUIZ

Four fine Year 10 students from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, beat off stiff opposition from the best of schools in the North West region to take top spot in the annual Gael Linn Tráth na gCeist. Conor Anderson, Pearse McIntyre, Éilis McNamee and Mark Gormley built upon the success achieved by Liam Mc Goldrick, Conor Carlin, Clodagh Connolly and Megan Kerr, who won this competition last year.

As always the North West region was well represented at this annual competition, with over sixty teams participating from over ten schools. The day concluded with a céilí, which inspired some new recruits to the finer footwork of Irish dancing and exposed others for having two left feet! And we’re not talking about Loreto College’s Irish teachers, Bean Uí Mhianáin or Bean Uí Mhaoláin either !

Bean Uí Mhianáin, Head of Irish at Loreto College, commented that all the students who represented the College at the event must be heartily congratulated on their active participation in events and their impeccable manners and respect to all involved, adding that these students are a credit to their families and to Loreto College.  Mr Brian Lenehan, College Principal, congratulated the students and their teachers on a day of commendable participation and success.
