Managing Adolescent Stress

St Brigid's Bake Off

Recently, the St. Brigid’s Bake Off took place in the school. A large number of students took part from various years and “baked off” in the Senior and Junior Categories. The girls had three hours to make and decorate their cakes. In the Junior Category, the task was to bake a novelty cake. First prize in the Junior Category went to Sophie Dennehy (1 Green) with her chocolate mud pig cake. Clodagh O’ Connor (2 Red) came second with a farm scene inspired chocolate sponge, and Becci Fleming (1 Green) came third with an iced maderia cake decorated with buttercream and fondant icing.

In the Senior Category, the challenge was to bake a cake inspired by the theme of Wellbeing. This category was won by Laura Kenny (4 Blue) with her lemon sponge decorated with buttercream and fondant icing.

The judges had a very difficult task to decide between all of the delicious entries! A lot of hard work and detail went into making and decorating the cakes. Well done to all involved and thanks to Ms. O Donoghue and the Home Ec department for organising the event.

Some photos can be seen below and also on our gallery section.


Munster Junior Football B Final Victory

St. Brigid’s claimed a fantastic victory in the Munster Junior B Final in a thrilling game in Fitzgerald Stadium on Monday 26th February. On a very cold but sunny day the Killarney girls put on an excellent team display that was their best performance of the year.

In the first half the Pres girls took advantage of the strong wind and scored a quickfire 5 goals to see them into a commanding lead by half time.

The second half was a different prospect, as Rathmore had some very dangerous attacks, but they were held to 6 points by a resolute Killarney defence. St. Brigid’s held on to win a very open and exciting game that entertained the large crowd in attendance. The final score was St.Brigid’s 6-09 Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra Rathmore 2-08

After the game player of the match and captain, Anna Clifford accepted the cup on behalf of her team and thanked Rathmore for a great game, the ground staff for the use of Fitzgerald Stadium and Sean Joy, the referee, for officiating. Anna also paid special mention to her own teammates and the management team of Paudie Breen and teacher, Ms. Adrienne Brosnan.

The St. Brigid’s team now march on to represent Munster in the All Ireland competition in two weeks time. They will face Meath and Leinster champions, Eureka Secondary School, Kells in the semi -final.
