The School Community were delighted to welcome Mr. Keith Ricken, Cork’s U20 All-Ireland winning football manager to the school today. He gave an inspirational speech to all 6th Year students who started back today. He spoke of the need to live every hour and to learn something new in that hour. He spoke of the need for all of us to become our own managers and to share the talents we have. Above all, he asked every leaving cert to follow their hearts and not to be guided by the expectations of others but to strife for the best in themselves. Mr. O Mahony, Principal thanked Mr. Ricken for his thought provoking words and congratulated him, Mr. Maurice Moore and Peter O Driscoll on their incredible success this year.
