Junior World Boxing Championships

We would like to congratulate Paul Ryan who has brought home bronze after representing Ireland at the AIBA World Junior Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. He won three fights from three, and secured the bronze medal after beating Milan Prat (France) with a unanimous decision in the quarter finals.

We are immensely proud of Paul's achievements thus far, and we are all rooting for him as he paves a way through the boxing circuit. Onwards and upwards Paul...

You can view a gallery of pictures from Paul's bouts in the ring, to his place on the podium and right back to the Donahies with his medal here.

You can watch a short film that was written and directed by Paul as part of the DCU UniTY programme in Transition Year below.




Students Receive National Flag at Waterford Ceremony

fg

At a recent ceremony in Waterford, Donahies Community School was honoured to receive our national flag from the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins. Two of our students, Adam Murphy and Chloe Fowler accepted the flag on behalf of the school. They are pictured above with Peter Keohane, Deputy Principal and Cillian O’Leary, History teacher. Mary Kennedy of RTE was MC of the event with entertainment provided by Eurovision entrant Molly Sterling.

The tricolour, designed by Thomas Meagher, was first flown in Waterford in 1848 as a symbol of peace and unity between all on the island. Over the last year all of the flags presented to some 300 schools were flown at 33 The Mall, in Wateford, where Thomas F Meagher flew the very first tricolour in 1848.

To see more photos from the day please go to the photo gallery.
