Well done to First Year Class 1D who recently made a film on alcohol awareness. Jack Marks and Ellie McCarthy were the directors of the film.The very talented Dylan Murphy, Joe Collins, Gearóid McCarthy, Daniel Cotter and Sean Twomey were wonderful actors. They made it look effortless.

The film was shot on location in the school grounds. This film is very powerful and clearly shows the effects of alcohol on relationships as the boys continue to drink and cannot walk properly. They also have a fight in the corridors.

Shane Kingston plays the role of a strict principal who has his hands full with these difficult students. The film ends with the students suspended from school and all the class saying “Don’t Drink!”.

The film has been entered into a competition with drugs.ie and youth media. Well done to all and to Ms. Orla O’Sullivan for organising this film as part of Religion, where the issue of alcohol is addressed. Best of luck in the competition! The film can be accessed on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVfkNbJPKuE
