On the glorious morning of the 10th of May, the 5D LCVP class from the Convent of Mercy Roscommon kicked off their sports fun day in aid of the Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation as part of their LCVP Action Plan. The day was action packed from beginning to end with various events like wheelbarrow races, bungee runs, three-legged races, relay races, sack races, tug of war, potato and spoon races and a bouncy castle to top it all off. The Fun Day was made available for 1st, 2nd, TY and 5th years and entry fees were €5. All funds collected from the tuck shop which had a large selection of treats and goodies, and the funds raised from the entrance fees were donated to the Donal Walsh #Live Life Foundation. Over 350 students enjoyed all of the events of the sports fun day that was perfectly planned by the LCVP Class and their teacher Mrs Kelly. They raised €1100 for the charity.
The first year camogie team were crowned Connacht champions on Wednesday last. The girls from the Mercy took on Portumna Community School in a very tightly contested match. Both teams were in deadlock on a scoreline at fulltime of 1-3 all. It was not until the second half of extra time that the Mercy girls sealed victory. The Mercy girls put on a great display of skill and determination throughout this second half with many outstanding individual performances. Every member of the panel gave 100% commitment throughout the year and they received their just rewards by claiming the First Year Connacht Colleges Cup. The team for the final was Alana Corcoran, Katie Heneghan, Shonagh Regan, Mella Lawless, Oral Connolly, Alannah Donlon, Taylor, Kelly, Niamh Fitzgerald, Ciara Carr, Holly Hopkins, Sally Bolger, Rachel Murray, Anna Campbell, Sinéad Mannion, Jessica Doran, Emma Crean, Laoise Mahon, Leah Casey, Eimear O’Farrell, Niamh Cuttle, Sioda McGuinness.
