TY Graduation Night


The celebratory lights were truly switched on last night as Year Head, Mr Morley kicked off the TY Graduation Night with a reflection on the year’s activities giving us all a sense of envy. From art exhibitions in Lismore Castle to ziplining through Delphi, the TY’s had an adventure filled year. Students had many of these academic achievements on show throughout the assembly area showcasing their technological skills with mechanical aeroplanes, colourful lino prints and individual portfolios consisting of business and marketing endeavours.

Students were commended on their photographic skills undertaken with their teacher Mr E. McGrath. Michael Harte claimed first prize for his beautifully composed vintage portrayal of a deathly game of poker. Following Michael was David Roche in second with a highly-contrasted spider caught between light and darkness with honourable mentions for Matthew Quills’ modern take on photographic subjects and Kevin Joyce’s airport tower of North Face rucksacks.

Keeping with TY’s artistic licenses, students had the pleasure of participating in the annual Lismore Castle Art Exhibition. Their work was on display throughout the assembly area and garnered an internal moment of glory with principal Mr Sheehan selecting five pieces to be put on display for two years with in the school. With many great choices, Mr Sheehan had a difficult job and awarded Shaun Mulcahy, Daniel Delaney, Peter Power, James Power and Callum Organ the honour of exhibiting their work.

In keeping with awarding students for their excellent commitment and ultimately diving into the essence of TY, the Student of the Year was announced. The ever-helpful James Power was selected to hold the title for the TY school year 2016-2017.

Congratulations and best of luck future Leaving Cert Class of 2019.
