T.Y. Business project group are about to launch their school bank “Lig Mé Saor”. The theme of this year’s bank is to “wake up to the importance of saving” and to the freedom of having a bank account with a laser card that can be used anywhere in the world.

Working in conjunction with the AIB branch in Cashel, interviews for the six prestigious positions on the management committee within the bank were conducted by local AIB student officer Eanna Quish and Waterford branch manager John McSweeney.

The committee are currently putting plans in place for a Regular Saver Award (for Christmas) and a first year poster competition. An app, which can be downloaded onto phones, has been created by the marketing department. “Lig Mé Saor” can be followed on Twitter.

Corn Phádraig Progress

The Community School’s senior hurlers qualified for the quarter-finals of the Munster colleges Corn Phádraig with a victory over St.Joseph’s, Kilmallock. Played at Lattin G.A.A. club, the Limerick team had the benefit of a significant wind in the first half. Excellent work by the Cashel defence anchored by James Cummins curtailed the Kilmallock attack, while Cashel’s Killian Loughman, James Casey and Michael Ryan put the opposing defenders under constant pressure. At the interval three points separated the teams: Kilmallock 1 – 7, Cashel 1 – 4.

Cashel had the wind at their backs in the second half but it was Kilmallock who opened the better and stretched their lead. A superb goal from Seanie O’Halloran brought Cashel back into the game. Josh Keane landed a point to level the game and then an intense mid-field battle ended with Walter O’Carroll rifling over the bar. Scores continued to flow with Josh Keane, James Doyle, Walter O’Carroll, James Casey and Killian Loughman on target. Final score: Cashel C.S. 3 – 15, St. Joseph’s, Kilmallock 2 – 10.

There was much to admire about this team performance: when the challenge was greatest, the response was highest.
