Wednesday the 7th of May was an eventful day for Scoil Chriost Rí in Portlaoise.

While many schools would be delighted to achieve one all Ireland success Scoil Chríost Rí managed to achieve two all in the space of a few hours!!

Firstly the school’s U14 soccer team had a fantastic 7-2 win in Athlone to claim the All Ireland U14’s title with one player Emma Lawlor scoring five of the seven goals.

This was a great achievement and we would like to congratulate the team as well as their teachers and coaches Mr.Goggin, Mr.Moss & Ms.Duggan.

Meanwhile a Transition Year student from the school was busy cooking up another victory as she was taking part in The Fine Dine at Mine All-Island Schools Cookery Competition.

The Junior and Senior Finals were held over two days in St. Angela’s College, Sligo. Sixteen finalists in each category and from all over Ireland battled it out for the coveted title.

The competition gives students an opportunity to create tasty, healthy and affordable restaurant meals at home.

Students are asked to submit their favourite restaurant meal (main course dish only) for TWO people.

In the end the student in question Eada Hogan was victorious and won first prize in the senior category.

Well Done Eada.
