Millstreet Community School representatives at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition

Congratulations to Mark Casey and Eimear Corcoran from Millstreet Community School on winning a ‘highly recommended’ in the Social and Behavioural Sciences category at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition held in Dublin recently. Eimear and Mark researched a project on improving the ranking system for Ireland’s second level schools. There were 104 projects in the final in this category making Mark and Eimear’s achievement most impressive.

Also at the Exhibition, Brian O’ Sullivan, Dylan Sheehan and David O’Donovan presented their project on the effects of heavy school bags on pupils to Minister for Defence Paul Keogh and to Michael Healy-Rae TD.

Jordan Kiely, Abby Ring and Emma McSweeney conducted research on a health related issue:  Are teenagers carrying risk factors now that we would only see in older people before?

Emergency personnel listen carefully as Shannon O’Sullivan and Katie Healy as they explain their project at the Exhibition, that was entitled Charcoal or Eye Liner Markers – Which is better to help the daily lives of firefighters?

All the students are to be commended for the way they spoke about their projects, not just to the Exhibition judges but also to those who simply stopped to enquiry about the research they had carried out. Thanks must also be extended to the teachers who have helped the students prepare for the Exhibition.

Dramatic win in Mitchelstown for Millstreet Community School Senior Soccer Team


Millstreet Community School senior soccer team bounced back from a heavy loss in their first group match in Castleisland to beat St. Fanahan’s, in Mitchelstown, 5-4 in the John Murphy Cup.  The win means they progress to the knockout stages of the competition and now face another tough away assignment against Schull Community College.

Having taken a two goal lead courtesy of the brace from Lael Tambwe, St. Fanahan’s battled back to take a 4-2 lead.  However, with ten minutes to go the Millstreet students began their remarkable fightback.  The third goal was scored by captain Colm O’Leary.  Then it was the turn of two of the substitutes to play their part.  Daniel Dennehy and Mateusz Ozaist both found the net, the last goal coming with virtually the final kick of the game.

It was a really spirited team performance and all the panel should be proud of their efforts.
