Farewell Fr Paul

It was with a heavy heart that we welcomed Fr Paul Crosby to the school today, because it was time to say goodbye. Fr Paul has been a familiar face around St Colman's for eight years. He always had a smile on his face and loved nothing more than chatting to the children. He officiated at First Holy Communion, our annual Carol Service, the annual Grandparents' Day celebrations and many more religious occasions held in St Paul's Church or in the school. Sadly, Fr Paul is moving away from Mullingar Parish, but it is for a good reason. Bishop Deenihan has appointed him as Parish Priest of Trim and we congratulate him.

We would like to sincerely thank Fr Paul for all the time he devoted to the school community and for his help and guidance over the years. We wish him good health and happiness and every success in his new role. We hope he will not be a stranger and will come and visit us often!

Fr Paul is pictured below with the students from Ms Gilligan's Fourth Class who presented him with a poem that they wrote especially for him.

Tag Rugby


Tag rugby is a non contact team game. Each player wears a belt that has two velcro tags attached to it. Attacking players attempt to dodge and pass a rugby ball, while defenders attempt to prevent them scoring by 'tagging' which is pulling a velcro attached tag from the ball carrier. The students from Mr O'Reilly's Third Class enjoyed learning and playing tag rugby this morning and are pictured below.

The kidathon is a great introduction to triathlon and is perfect for newcomers to the sport. Shannon Breslin and Conor Casey from Mrs Gilligan's Fourth Class took part. They each swam 6 lengths of the pool which is 150 meters followed by twice around the park which is 1,600 meters. Conor won a trophy for coming in 3rd place and Shannon won a medal for 5th place. Well done guys - a great performance!

Aviva Minis National Festival


20190520 114317 - copyIt's every young rugby player's dream to one day play in the Aviva Stadium. Well that dream came true yesterday for Jack Conlon from Mrs Healy-Donoghue's Third Class. Jack plays for Mullingar Rugby Club's u10 team and he was chosen as one of 17 players to travel to Dublin to take part in the Aviva Minis National Festival. The Aviva hosts this festival every year bringing the rugby season to a close. Hundreds of boys and girls from twenty clubs all over Ireland participated and they had the opportunity to play on the pitch that is normally reserved for their Ireland and provincial heroes. One of the big treats during the Aviva Minis is the appearance of Ireland rugby stars. This year, Jack Conan, Josh van der Flier and Sene Naoupu showed up and were happy to sign jerseys and balls for the young rugby players. Jack had a wonderful day in the Aviva and hopefully it was just the first of many times he'll play there.
