Building in Albania
Transition Year student Brian Burke spent the first week of October in Albania as part of the “Heart to Hand” charity. This group works with the Missionaries of Charity to help the poorest of the poor in countries such as Albania, Bosnia, Moldova and Romania. This year the group of 27 volunteers constructed a multi-purpose building to serve as a school, church and community centre in the city of Durres. They built also a new home for a family in the town of Lac and roofed and fitted windows to two other family homes. Well done to Brian and his fellow volunteers.
The second round of the Corn Phádraig competition pitted the Community School against Doon C.B.S. last Wednesday, in Sean Treacy Park. The opening ten minutes were “even stephens,” with both sides scoring 1 – 1 in that period. By midway in the half, CCS had moved two points ahead, 1 – 4 to 1 – 2, with several players notching points. Doon then took control for most of the second quarter, adding 1 – 4 unanswered. However in the final minutes of the this half, Cashel secured two points from play, leaving the interval scoreline in Doon’s favour, 2 – 6 to 1 – 6. Regrettably, Cashel lost a player to a red card just before the half-time whistle.
Upon the resumption, the sides traded points. The combination of a stiff breeze and one-man advantage saw Doon exert dominance for much of the second half. To Cashel’s credit, they continued to challenge and in the final ten minutes added 2 – 1 to their tally. However, it was too little too late. Final score: CCS 3 – 9, Doon CBS 2-16.

The Community School’s senior soccer team travelled to Waterford last week to take on St. Paul’s in the Munster Cup. The story of this game can be summed up as: numerous missed goal chances by CCS in the first half, St. Paul’s taking their one chance from a free kick, and then in the second half the Waterford side taking control and slotting in three goals, despite some fine saves by Cashel’s goalkeeper.
Team: Gearoid Slattery, Aaron May, Michael McDermott, Craig Condon, Mark Shortt, Donal Reade, Dean Thompston, Paddy Keating, Aidan O’Connell, Brian Sheehy, Niall Anglim, Fionn Hogan, Mark O’Brien, John Keating, Paddy Ryan, Evan Hickey, Larry Shanahan, Niall Fitzgerald, Andy Ely, Murty Browne, Eoghan Ryan, Owen Dillon, Thomas Caulfield.
First Year Hurling
The first year’s contested the final hurling blitz in the Sciath Ui Chatháin competition in Templetouhy last Tuesday, October 18. Despite making a good opening, they wound up losing to Roscrea C.C. From Kilkenny, Johnstown crossed the county borders to compete and proved too strong for the Cashel boys who then went on to defeat Thurles C.B.S. `B` team before succumbing to Borrisoleigh in the fourth game. All players tried their best but special mention must be made of the excellent play of James Walsh, Conor Walsh, Robert Wade, Brandan Duffy, Cathal D’Arcy and Killian Hayde throughout the long day.
Team: James Ryan, Conor Walsh, James Walsh, Kevin Tobin, Brandan Duffy, Robert Wade, Alan O’Donnell, Cathal D’Arcy, Victor Bourke, Ciarán Davern, Jack Price, Paddy Fahy, Walter Ryan, Killian Hayde, Conn Bonnar, Jimmy Cawley, Brian Davern, Philip Fogarty, Dylan Gubbins, Conor Horan, Jonathan Wade.
It was the first game of the season and it was a tense game when CCS welcomed Carrigaline to Spafield Park. Keith O’Riordan captained the Cashel side and played a good game. The Cork side were superior throughout the first half, crossing the Cashel line several times, to lead 26 – 3 at the break. In the second half Cashel raised their game and performed very effectively and saw their efforts rewarded with good scores capped by a fine try from Keith O’Riordan. At the end, Carrigaline were ahead by 34 – 17.
