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.
Congratulations to Darragh Twomey, Aubane, and Neil O’Leary, Prohus, who were runners-up in the Group Category of the BT Young Scientist Competition at the RDS in Dublin, also getting the Agricultural Innovation prize from Teagasc, and well as the Perrigo Best Biological and Ecological Project. They discovered that the common natural bacteria found in plants, Pseudomonas Fluorescens, could be used to markedly increase the yield of certain barley crops. Both are students at Coláiste Treasa, Kanturk.
Thanks to everyone who supported the Bake Sale that was held on Saturday 16th December 2017 in Millstreet Parish Centre. A total of €632 was raised. This money will go towards the travel and accommodation costs of two 5th year students at Millstreet Community School (Ciara Manning and Denise Healy) who will travelling with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust as helpers for a week at Easter 2018.
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.
Thanks to everyone who took part in this year’s Team Hope Shoebox Appeal.

A word of thanks to all those who came along to support the Language and Culture Night that was held in Millstreet Community School on Friday 12th May 2017. Fourteen nationalities from three continents were represented! Thanks also to those who prepared food for the evening. It was a night for celebrating cultural diversity which will be remembered for a long time.
A group of students from Millstreet Community School who formed the school’s first development education committee during their Transition Year in 2015/2016, received certificates in recognition of their efforts from Garda John Crowley. They had organised a range of activities within the school and local community. These included a climate change petition, the ‘thumbprint’ campaign, and a climate change seminar for local post-primary schools in Green Glens Arena. They also taught lessons to students on Fairtrade and the UN sustainable development goals.
The 1st students at Millstreet Community School have a retreat on Thursday 30th March 2017 in Millstreet Parish Centre. The retreat will be run by NET ministries, who are based in Co. Donegal and this will be the tenth year they’ve been to Millstreet.
Thanks to those who have already volunteered to host members of the retreat team. All seven girls (18-25 year olds) have been accommodated.
We have not managed to find acommodation for the five boys (18-25 year olds) yet. If anyone was in a position to host them that would be great. They need to be accommodated in a pair and a group of three.
If there are families able to give them accommodation and a simple meal on the evening of Wednesday 29th March (they’ll be arriving in Millstreet at about 6.30pm), and breakfast on Thursday 30th March, that would be great. They need to be back at the Parish Centre for between 8.00am or 8.15am on the Thursday so they can get ready for the retreat. If you can help please contact Millstreet Community School on 029 70087 as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your help.
