Kearney Awards 2017

The Kearney Awards were held in Coláiste Choilm on Saturday 16th December 2017. These awards acknowledge the outstanding successes achieved by our students in the Leaving and Junior Certificate State Examinations. The night began with the celebration of Mass by our school chaplain, Fr. Shane Crombie. This was followed by a meal and the presentation ceremony. In attendance were parents and families of the award winners along with some of their former primary school principals and special guests including Murt Daveron, a former teacher.

The Leaving Certificate Gold Medal was presented to Cathal Curran by Mr. Seamus McConnell, Chairperson of the Coláiste Choilm Parents Association. Cathal also won the ‘Conradh na Gaeilge’ Award which was presented by Sean Breathnach, a former teacher of Gaeilge here in the school. The Leaving Certificate Silver Medal was won by Ciaran O hAolain. Ciaran won two further awards; the ‘Pat Carty’ Award for excellence in English which was presented by Mr. Michael Byrne, Chairman of the Board of Management and the ‘Anne Ryan’ Award for Science presented by Aisling Ryan representing the Ryan family. These awards are in memory of Pat Carty and Anne Ryan, former teachers in Coláiste Choilm.

The ‘Frank Wynters’ Award was presented to Adam McMonagle by Deirdre and Bernie Wynters for his success in the Leaving Certificate Construction Studies examination. This award is in memory of Francis Wynters who died tragically in a road traffic accident. Adam is studying Engineering in NUI Galway. The Junior Certificate Kearney Gold Medal was won by Conor Brennan and the Junior Certificate Kearney Silver Medal was jointly won by Waseq Khondkar & David Caulfield. A great night was enjoyed by all. We wish all our students every success in their future studies. A special thanks to the Parents Association who organised and sponsored this event as they do each year.
