Coláiste Abbain

On Monday night last Coláiste held their Achievements Night in their new building. Following the many presentations to students, Principal Mr Senan Lillis and Deputy Principal Mr John Nolan were delighted to show people around the fabulous new school.

There is no doubt about it, the new building is as good as it gets in the absolute quality, design, its got everything a student would wish for. For many of the older generation who attended 'The Technical School' down the years it was sad to see the old building being demolished this week - but to see what has replaced it is just remarkable. There is no doubt that Coláiste Abbain will make its mark in the future.

Among the recipients of awards on the night were the following students: Pawel Jaglarz, Sam Murphy, Leon Sinnott, Nathan O'Brien, Nathan Thorpe, Chloe Quirke Walsh, Graham O'Reilly, Stephen O'Dwyer, Kieva Hynes, Rachel Quirke, Steven Coady, Brandon Sinnott, Katie Goldsmith, Kian Quirke, Ciara Booth, Craig Bradley, Ciaran Redmond, Sean Hynes, Aaron O'Brien, Ethan Delaney, and Rebecca Redmond. Student of the year was Rebecca Redmond. Minor Soccer player of the year was Graham O'Reilly.
