TY Students at the Four Courts

TYs at the Four Courts

Chaith daltaí na hIdirbhliana lá ins na Ceithre Cúirteanna ar an Satharn agus iad ag glacadh páirte, mar abhcóidí agus dlíodóirí!!

The students participated  in the Public Access to Law programme, a specially devised law programme which gives students a unique insight into law as seen through the eyes of a practicing barrister or solicitor. This law course has become a success story in many Irish schools over the years.

The Public Access to Law (P.A.L.) programme, now entering its 20th year, has become one of the most successful and unique initiatives in Irish Education. It strives to de-mystify the world of law and to embody within this visiting law module many of the principles of Transition Year including thinking on one’s feet, research, presentation skills and teamwork.

Unser erster Schüleraustausch Deutschland – Irland!

German Exchange

An tseachtain seo caite (16ú-23ú Aibreán) tháinig grúpa Gearmánaigh go dtí Coláiste an Eachréidh ar mhalartú don chéad uair riamh. Chaith cúigear scoláire déag agus beirt mhúinteoirí seachtain inár scoil, ag feastal ar ranganna agus ag cur aithne ar an réigiún álainn thart timpeall orainn. Beidh grúpa daltaí ón gColáiste ag taisteal go dtí an Ghearmáin i mí Mheán Fómhair seo chugainn. 

Last week (13th – 23rd April) a group of German came to Coláiste an Eachréidh on an exchange for the first time. Fifteen students and two teachers spend a week with us, attending classes and getting to know the beautiful region around us. A group of students from the Coláiste will return to Germany this coming September. Click here or on picture to view their webpage

Comghairdeas ó chroí Mollaí as an éacht a rinne tú breis is seachtain ó shin nuair a bhuaigh tú an bonn ÓIR i gcomórtas Triathlon na scoileanna. Beidh Mollaí agus a deartháir Jack san iomaíocht i mbabhtaí ceannais na hÉireann an deireadh seachtaine seo chugainn.
