Well done to Larisa, Ellie, Lauren and Eve (Pinkland) who secured 2nd position in the Inaugural County Crafters Competition. The judges were blown away with the quality of the work submitted by students all around Ireland, and for the girls, they were impressed with "not only the build but the presentation of materials and video". The girls have now won a trip to One Microsoft Place at the start of the new year.


This build challenge tasked our students with recreating a local area, keeping sustainability and accessibility in mind. The girls chose the local play park just outside Clones for their build and as you can see from the picture, they made it quite different. 

Well done to Eimear McMahon (3rd year) and Sean Boyle (1st year) on their entry to the 2021 Kenwood Young baker of the year. Eimear baked and decorated her delicious blue cake with Kinder Buenos, smarties, twix, twirl, star and a few other treats. Seans cake was decorated with Unicorns, Rainbows and a witches hat. The 2021 theme for the competetion is "Dreams" which both cakes desplayed beautifully. Thanks to Ms. McLoughlin and Ms. Lynch for their support and encouragement.

On the 12th of October, First Year History students, accompanied by their teachers, Ms. Smith and Ms. Mc Groary , went on a short walk to one of the most historical sites in Clones.

The Round Tower, which was built in the 10th Century, originally stood at 23 metres, including the conical cap, which is now sadly missing. It was built from sandstone and there were four storeys, including the bell storey. Each storey had a single window, all of which remain.

The students observed how skilled the monks were and especially, how good they were at working with stone, at a time when there was no machinery or even cement!

They also saw the tomb shrine of St. Tiernach, who of course left his mark in many places in Clones, most notably, St. Tiernach’s Park, the home of the Ulster Final.

The students enjoyed their trip back in time to early Christian Ireland and are most grateful to have such important historical sites on their doorstep.

Ruth from Largy wins Global

 01 intro

Science Competition winner Ruth Madden, a student at Largy College in Clones, Co Monaghan, claimed the Gold Award in Physical and Engineering at the Hong Kong Global Youth Science and Technology Bowl. She had already won the SciFest National Final, sponsored by Science Foundation Ireland, for her project 'The Microplastic Filter – A Small Solution to a Global Problem'.

Ruth’s work focused on reducing the volume of microplastics entering the environment through wastewater from domestic washing machines. She designed and constructed a filtration unit capable of intercepting microplastics as small as 0.1mm that can be retrofitted to existing standard domestic wastewater infrastructure.

Ruth said she was "delighted" to have won and said the award "does not just recognise my efforts" but is also an acknowledgement of the support and encouragement from her family and the staff of Largy College.

Two other Irish students - Timothy McGrath of Killorglin Community College, Co Kerry and Alice Shaughnessy, of Calasanctius College, Galway – also qualified for the Hong Kong event.

GYSTB is organized by The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups and was broadcasted live globally on 1 August. The competition attracted entries from 22 countries and regions across the globe. Ninety-three finalists were selected for online

judging. Two other Irish students succeeded in winning awards having qualified for the finals after winning at the 2019 SciFest National Final. Timothy McGrath from Killorglin Community College, Kerry won a first-place award in the Biology and Chemistry category and Alice Shaughnessy, Calasanctius College, Galway a third-place award in the Physics and Engineering category.
