The Model National School

The Model National School added to their sports medal tally last Wednesday week at the County Swimming Gala Championships where they came away with four medals from their seven competitors including two silvers from Mark Williamson and Zoe Martin and two bronze medals from
Katie Griffith and Katie Byrne. For a school with 92 pupils competing
against 22 other large Cavan Schools with hundreds of competitors this
was a great achievement for the small town school. Well done to all
the competitors on such a great achievement.
This adds to the colossal 24 medals achieved at the County Cross
Country Championships in Killinkere last month where The Model School
came in with 1 Team Gold, 2 Team Silver and 1 Team Bronze at the
Championships out of the four Team events entered. This was again out of
20+ schools and 200+ entrants in each event. Well done again to all
the entrants. A great achievement.
Last year the students in 5th/6th Class entered two competitions. The
first was the Football Association of Irelands (FAI) 5a-side County
Annual Soccer Competition in Cootehill. This being The Model Schools
first year entering this prestigious event they made their whole way
to the final– taking big name scalps along the way, but disappointingly only to be narrowly defeated by Butlersbridge NS by a last minute winner to lose 1-0. Butlersbridge went on to win the Ulster FAI Schools Title, but it was a huge
achievement for the lads of the Model School to get so far in their first year. Later that same year, The Model entered a second tournament, a G.A.A. 7-aside mixed football Competition, held annually in St Aiden’s Comprehensive Secondary School. With schools from all around Cavan and Monaghan invited The Model School played exceptionally well and again made it to the final
of this competition. They were beaten by a more experienced Latton, of Monaghan.
So in less than 12 months in just 4 competitions, The Model School have won: 1
Team Gold,  4 Team Silver, 1 Team Bronze, 1 Individual Silver and 2
Individual Bronze in Cavan Competitions so far in all sports. With the
FAI and GAA tournaments for 2015 still to come, the sports future
medal tally for 2015 looks bright in The Model School.

A group of past students have got together with the intention of holding a 50th Anniversary Re-Union to celebrate the opening of the Old Vocational School, Kells Road, on the May Bank Holiday weekend in 2015. Were you a pupil at the school in 1965? Do you know the whereabouts of any of the pupils of that year or would you be interested in meeting up with your old class mates? If so, could you contact any of the following for further information: Sean Ledwith (086 3082391), Patricia Gilsenan (nee Donnellan, 086 3033610), Frank Donnelly (087 221 0252), Sean Callaghan (087 9290915) or Jim Liggan (087 9714300).

 

Vigil Mass time change in the New Year

The Parish Pastoral Council has decided to change the time of the Saturday evening Vigil Mass in Bailieborough to 7.00pm—instead of 7.30pm—in the New Year. The change will come into effect on Saturday, January 3rd, 2015. This will bring the Parish into line with the diocesan regulation that there must be at least one and a half hours between the starting times of weekend Masses in each Parish. Currently it is very difficult for one Priest to cover the 7.30pm Mass in Bailieborough and be on time for the 8.30pm Mass in Killann.

Christmas Lights

On Sunday afternoon last in pleasant, mild conditions Santa arrived in the town’s Fire Brigade to switch on the town’s new modern Christmas Lights. There was a huge crowd present and they were entertained before the switch on, by the Bailieborough School of Music Orchestra, the Community Choir, Hard Times Chorus and an amalgamated choir from St. Anne’s N.S, The Model N.S. and St. Felim’s, The Vale N.S. John Ed Sheanon was compere for the afternoon and he kept things running smoothly. A seasonal highlight was a rendering by Bert Coote of a poem for the occasion written specially for it, by well-known veteran poet Kevin Connell. Santa took a well-deserved time-out and after the traditional count down, he turned on the new 2014 Christmas Lights, to a rapturous round of applause. Well done to the Bailieborough Business Association for organising a great event, for providing the new Christmas Lights and special thanks goes to all who helped out on the day.

East Cavan Gaels:Club News 24th November  2014

Under 12; The replay of the U12 League Shield Final v St. Felim’s proved to be equally as exciting as the first encounter. Again the sides could not be separated after the hour, so extra time was played and two quick fire goals were enough for St. Felim’s to prevail on the night.

We must give credit to our boys who have hurled long and hard at this grade all year beginning with the Spring league which began, in the snow!, in February, through the U13 league in the Summer and this U12 league. A bright future on the hurling field awaits these boys.

The number 1 Adventure Racer in Ireland, Dessie Duffy was first home by almost 5 minutes, making it five wins on the trot but he was pushed all the way by his team mates Killian Heary, Mike Reilly and Kieran Cosgrove who finished in third, fifth and sixth places. Tony Gregory was next in for the Kayakarunners with a brilliant time of 3hrs 30mins. John Joe Reilly, Ronan O Grady, Daragh Nulty and Bernice Lambe all ran very strong races finishing well under four hours and completing an unbelievable year for the Cavan Kayakarun crew.

TAI CHI Classes

Anyone between the ages of 11 to 25 interested in taking Tai Chi classes should attend the Beckscourt Resource centre next Thursday, 30th of October, at 6pm.

Developed originally in China as a self defense strategy, or martial art,   tai chi—the “supreme ultimate fist”- is practiced in modern times, primarily as a gentle exercise technique. Described as “meditation in motion,” Tai Chi consists of a standing person performing a series of postures or bodily movements in a slow and graceful manner, with each movement flowing without pause to the next. According to Chinese legend, the technique was createdby a Taoist monk who was inspired as he watched a crane and a snake do battle. Impressedby the ‘snake’s ability to subtly and  swiftly avoid  the bird’s thrusts, he devised a series of self-defence techniques  that do not  involve meeting the opponent’s force with force, but rather stress  evading the blow; causing the opponent’s own momentum to work against  him.
