2014 Ulster GAA Champions.

Well done to the school girls who won the Ulster Indoor GAA title recently.  Having captured the County title in Letterkenny, the team represented Donegal at the Meadowhill Arena in Magherafelt.  Four consecutive victories saw them power their way to Kilmacrennan’s first Ulster title in this competition.  Comhghairdeas le gach duine as an éacht iontach.

ULSTER QUIZ CHAMPIONS.

Having won the Co. Donegal Cumann na mBunscol Allianz Quiz final recently, the team then represented the county in the Ulster Finals in Irvinestown in March 2014.  Well done to Ciara, Manus, Meabh and Conor on a great performance on the day.  They finished three points clear of the 35 other teams who had qualified, thus capturing the Ulster title.

GARDA QUIZ WINNERS.

On the same day, a team from the school participated in the divisional finals of the Garda Quiz.  Daniel, Harrison, Grainne and Conor represented the school in this event and, in a similar vein to the other school team participating that day, they too ‘took home the bacon’, finishing in first place.  They will now compete in the Garda Quiz County Final in April 2014.

5K Event.

The Kilmacrennan 5K event was held on Tuesday, 13th May 2014.  The event was a huge success with over 700 registered entrants.  The school wishes to thank the many sponsors and volunteers for their assistance on the day and acknowledge the generosity of parents with regard to the tea and sandwiches that were served afterwards.
