Gaelic Football Coláise Muire make Cork final

Crosshaven 7-9
Coláiste Daibhead 2-4

From the very start of this match Crosshaven were the better team. The
Crosshaven forwards won ball after ball and kept punishing the
defence. Coláiste Daibhead could hardly cross the halfway line as
Crosshaven continued to be in control. By halftime the game was over
with Crosshaven scoring goal after goal. At the start of the second
half Coláiste Daibhead began well and added a few points. But that
stopped as the half went on and Crosshaven continued to score. The
backline played well for Crosshaven and continued to pass it to the
forwards. Anthony Wrenne and Jordan Fahy were two of Crosshaven’s
players on the day.
Crosshaven now move into the final where they will
play Blarney.

Young Social innovator – Bird boxes installed in Crúachán woods

YSI students left the school eagerly this morning to place bird boxes in the Crúachán woods. Following months of sawing and shaping,  everything was now starting to take shape. The boxes were screwed to trees around the wood so that the birds would have easy access to them.

It is now two weeks away the final for our project and we will attend this event in the City Hall in Cork. We also got some great help from Croshaven Boys’ National school were the 1st class did some brilliant art work for our display.

Stay  tuned for more information on this interesting project.
