The Writest Stuff!

Among the many end-of-term events and activities, one of the most eagerly awaited is the announcement of the winner of the Kevin D. Kelleher Cup for creative writing, as judged by Dr. Ann Fallon.  The Juniors, in particular, enter the competition in great numbers and we are very jealous that Dr. Fallon gets to read every one of those entries, herself!  This year the main trophy was won by Ruben Grace for a wonderfully written story entitled “An Irish Refugee.”   Ruben follows in the footsteps of such recent luminaries as Josh McCormack, Frank Knowles and Tomas Clancy, all who have gone on to further academic acclaim in the St. Conleth’s Senior School.  There were brilliant entries from all classes with special merit certificates awarded to a number of pupils and Thomas McKenna receiving a special mention (and second place) from Dr Fallon.  See all the writeous dudes below!
