The Puppetmaster Plays To Full House

The Lady Gregory Project produced Leaving Certificate student Aoife Cronin’s second play “The Puppetmaster” in November. Following on from the outstanding success of “she.” in 2018, “The Puppetmaster” was performed to large crowds on two evenings. Well done to all involved in a student-led production, with the play raising funds for the Gary Kelly Cancer Centre.

The Lady Gregory Project will now focus on their next production, The Unmanageable Sisters, in January. The play is both hilarious and poignant, promising to be a fantastic evening’s entertainment. Directed by Sean Loughrey and produced by Aimee Crilly and Eve White, consider it a great stocking filler! Tickets are available on droichead.com

Christmas sa Coláiste

Our annual Christmas sa Coláiste was held on Thursday, December 12th. It was a fantastic evening featuring a range of Christmas favourites including as dáltaí from every year group performed on the night. There was also a Christmas market for the first time as a number of our Idirbliain mini-companies set up stalls on the evening to the joy of the Christmas shoppers in the crowd. A huge thank you to the Parents’ Association who assisted in organising and staging the event.

Soccer

The CNI Under 19 Ladies’ Soccer team were unfortunate to lose narrowly away to Loreto Balbriggan in December. It was a very encouraging performance from a young team that promises much for the future.

The Under 15 cailíní fared better in a thrilling victory in very wet and windy conditions in Kells. Well done to their coaches, Kelly and Nicole from idirbhliain. The First Year team followed their cue in securing a comprehensive win in the first round of the cup.

The Under 19 Men’s team were knocked out of the cup following a 1-0 defeat to Boyne C. C. from Trim. Nonetheless, they did secure their place in the League semi-final with a hard-fought win against local rivals St. Oliver’s C.C., a late goal securing a 3-2 win in Drogheda. The semi-final pits them against Boyne C.C., offering a quick opportunity to make up for the cup exit.

The First Year Boys’ team were defeated in the first round of the cup by a strong Dunboyne team. They begin January with league matches against both Skerries and Dunshaughlin.
