Leinster Plate Winners
On Monday Loreto Balbriggan played The Teresian school in the Leinster Plate final. It was a fiercely contested match which ended in exciting 8 second penalty runs. Our talented young team has gone from strength to strength this year, playing against some of the top hockey schools in the country. Thank you to @leinsterhockey and Three Rock for organising and hosting. We would also like to thank Portrane Hockey Club who kindly gave their wonderful coach Ross Hetem this year to help with training sessions. His expertise is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing what is in store for this fantastic team in the future.

Congratulations to two of our TY Junk Kouture designs that have successfully reached the Finals stage of the national and now International Junk Kouture fashion competition 2023. Jessica Chen with her creation ‘Medusa’s Cry’ is made almost entirely from till receipts which have been carefully folded individually into interlocking origami shapes.
‘Toxic Manipulations’ is Breonna Mc Cann and Anna Butler’s creation and is made from a range of various yellow and black plastics, particularly those plastics used for the disposal of hazardous wastes.
The final will take place in Dublin during the first week of May and it is a fantastic achievement for these Art students as they have been selected from thousands of entries and made it to the final 80 designs from the four regions of Ireland.
