Bowen Shield – BGS v CBC in Final (9th December)

Bandon Grammar School defeated Castletroy College 26 – 17 to reach the final of the Bowen Shield.

Tries from Victor Lovell(2) and Travis Coomey put Bandon in a strong position at half time with a 19 – 3 half time score line. Castletroy scored two converted tries in the second half to bring the score to within 2 point of Bandon. Some good lineout play in the last ten minutes saw James French to drive under the post to secure victory.

Junior Matheson Mace Debate

Well done to our students who took part in the Munster Qualifier of the Junior Matheson Mace Debate in Mount Mercy College on 14th November.

The three teams involved were Donnchadh Barrett and Denise O’Brien, Daniel Hoban and Neil Cronin, Jean-Luc Crowley- Debarbouille and Luka Bird.

It is an impromptu debate which requires students to write a speech in 15 minutes on a given motion and debate against three other teams, and there were four separate rounds over the course of the day. Although our students weren’t victorious in reaching the top 8 speakers on the day, they did very well in dealing with the motions they were given and all are hoping to participate again in the future. We will be finding out where speakers were placed later this week.

Well done to all involved especially Ms. Morley who organised and coached all who took part.
