Annual Awards Ceremony 2011


Having spent the previous Monday meeting and greeting the President of the United States, Barack Obama, Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin was back among his own in the Riverbank House Hotel when he was guest of honour at the annual Wexford C.B.S. Awards Presentation Night.
The function room was jam-packed with the students being honoured and their parents. They heard Minister Howlin urge the young students to look to the future with great hope and determination. He said he was “delighted to be here to recognise the incredible work, achievements and endeavours of the past school year. I still remember my time in Wexford CBS with great fondness. I can recall the mixed emotions of looking to the future in terms of career and choices.
“Ireland has been under a cloud for the last two years. The recent visits of Queen Elizabeth II and Barack Obama have lifted the national morale. We have shown what we are capable of. This is a great nation with talented, enterprising, committed people. There is no difficulty we can’t overcome.
“President Obama wrote a book some years ago when he was starting out in politics. It was called The Audacity of Hope. The word ‘audacity’ comes from the Latin where it means ‘to dare’.
“We have to act with boldness, courage and determination for a better future. It is easy to be sucked in to feelings of hopelessness and negativity. It surrounds us on the radio, in conversations and in the newspapers.
“There is much to be done. Together we are going to do it. It won’t be a spectator sport; there’ll be no room for onlookers. You might ask ‘What can I do?’ But it’s what you can do for your class, your school, your town and your country. Students are the future. Face that future with confidence and pride. I wish each of you well in all that you do and face in the years ahead,” he concluded to a warm round of applause.
Earlier Master of Ceremonies and Deputy Principal of the CBS, Mr. John Hegarty welcomed Minster Howlin, the parents of the students, the students, the Board of Management and the staff.
School principal Mr. Michael McMahon commented on the excellence of the students and praised for their academic as well as sporting achievements during the school year.
Mr. McMahon also thanked teachers Seamus Doyle and Sean Ahearne, Deputy Prinicpal John Hegarty and school secretary Bernadette Stafford for their work in organising the function.

Major of Wexford and CBS teacher Joe Ryan was also on hand to help at the prizegiving ceremony. Mayor Ryan and Mr. McMahon presented Minister Howlin with an inscribed silver cross pen to mark the occasion.

Finally the Transition Year students made a presentation of a bouquet of flowers and a signed picture of the group to the Transition Year Co-ordinator Ciara Spellman for her Trojan efforts with the class throughout the year which included, among many varied activities, a week-long trip to China.

There is a depth of talent at our disposable for the future. This year the competition was played on a knock - out basis due to time pressure, but non the less it produced some scintillating rugby with excellent handling and hard hitting the order of the day.

Staff v 6th Year Soccer

The Staff...3   6th Years...0
The annual end of year Staff v 6th Year soccer game took place on Friday with the usual outcome, a victory for the staff. 6th years promised a lot but in the end they went like lambs to the slaughter. The opening goal from Mr.Hegarty set the tone, however the 6th years were thrown a lifeline when Mr.Codd, the ref, awarded a penalty. Up stepped 'Duggy', but his well place shot was saved by Mr.Ahearne. The Staff then went for the jugular and two well taken goals from Danny Fitzpatrick were enough to wrap it up. 3-0, a handsome scoreline.

Flo-Gas Division 2 Final Report (Friday May 20, 2011)

Wexford CBS............. 7-7
Ramsgrange CS..........3-10


A mush improved second half display ensured that Wexford CBS won back to back Flo-Gas Division 2 titles last Friday when they overcame Ramsgrange C.S. after a mighty struggle.
Played in Ramsgrange school and 13-a-side at the home side’s request, the lead changed sides many times before the outcome eventually swung the way of Wexford CBS due to five second half goals.
Ramsgrange led at the break by 2-7 to 2-3 and were fully deserving of their lead as they hurled very cleverly in the opening period and took most of their chances.
However it was Wexford CBS who grabbed the opening score when Stephen Kearney nipped in and lashed the ball to the net inside the first minute. The same player added a pointed free soon after.
Ramsgrange then fought their way back into the match as Brian Power pointed twice, one a free. In the 12th
 minute James Rochford grabbed a fine goal for the home side as they took the lead.
Back came CBS as their midfielders Nicky Lawlor and Luke Byrne combined for the latter to point. At the other end, Brian Power converted three frees which gave Ramsgrange a lead of 1-5 to 1-2 after 15 minutes.
Stephen Kearney registered his second goal for CBS with a kicked effort which drew the sides level but Ramsgrange’s Jack Doherty struck a ground shot neatly into the bottom corner of the net before the break.
Ramsgrange’s four point lead at half-time turned into a two point deficit within sixty seconds of the new half as Jesse Farrell with a ground stroke and David Tormey put Wexford CBS ahead by 4-3 to 2-7.
Ramsgrange levelled with points from Adam Foley and James Rochford as both sides struggled for supremacy. CBS went ahead again as Jesse Farrell added another point and Stephen Kearney split the posts with a free.
Kearney then turned provider as two mazy solo runs into the heart of the Ramsgrange defence resulted in goals for David Tormey and Jesse Farrell.
James Rochford replied with a goal for the Ramsgrange lads to keep them in touch as the game entered the closing stages. The CBS defence repelled a 21 yard free and withstood further pressure from the Ramsgrange attack but with dangerman James Rochford well shackled by Joe Redmond; they began to lose their grip on the game.
The insurance score for Wexford CBS arrived late on when David Tormey and Jesse Farrell played a neat one-two before Tormey drilled the ball home.
County Coach Luke O’Hanlon presented the trophy to CBS captain Nicky Lawlor afterwards and he praised both sides for their performances.
Best players for CBS were Conor Fenlon, John Hamilton, man-of-the-match Joe Redmond and Stephen Kearney while Willie Dwyer, Brian Power and James Rochford shone for Ramsgrange.

U.19 Soccer Champions

Wexford C.B.S.............3
Kilcoole C.S.................0

Congratulations to Mr. Codd and his merry band of men who captured the Wexford-Wicklow League in style today. The goals were all scored by Danny Fitzpatrick, who now is a legend in C.B.S. folklore. The Michael Enright Cup sits proudly in the Boker once more.


A fantastic season which saw Wexford CBS take some notable scalps came to a dramatic conclusion on Wednesday afternoon as the Wexford lads emerged victorious in a wonderful Wexford – Wicklow Under 19 final.  Their opponents, Kilcoole of Wicklow, boasted several county players, many of whom had international experience. 
It was no surprise, therefore, that the CBS boys found themselves under the cosh for most of a first half in which they played against a strong wind.  Indeed they were grateful on several occasions to goalkeeper, Ross Lynch, who made some superb stops at vital moments. Ross’ performance was all the more remarkable considering he was only called into the team to replace the unfortunate Ryan Furlong who was injured the day before the final.  Ross was more than ably supported by a solid defence of Pierce Dooley, Brandon Nolan, Captain Dean Roche and the excellent Dale Scallan.  Spurred on by this staunch defence the CBS soon began to find their feet and the tide began to turn.  Robin Dempsey and Ashley Haughton deserve immense credit for stabilising the mid field and creating chances for the dangerous forward pairing of Sean Pailing and Danny Fitzpatrick. Indeed, it wasn’t long before Fitzpatrick took advantage of one such opportunity to put the Wexford boys one up at the break.
The second half began with a flurry of chances created by the CBS lads who, were now, smelling blood.  Finally, one of them fell to Fitzpatrick who notched his and his teams second with half an hour to go.  Kilcoole, however, were in no mood to surrender and piled pressure on the Wexford goal.  Both wide men, Keith Morrissey and Steve Mulally threw their support behind an overworked defence and succeeded in keeping Kilcoole at bay.  Time ticked by and it became obvious to all there that this Wexford team just would not be breached.  The icing on the cake came when man of the match, Fitzpatrick, completed a memorable hatrick by tapping in after some great work by Scallan. 
The Michael Enright trophy was presented to winning captain, Dean Roche by Mrs. Mary Enright, amid scenes of much jubilation.  Manager, Brendan Codd, would like to express his thank to St. Joseph’s soccer club for kindly allowing the use of their wonderful facilities and to Johnny Nolan, Joe Breen and Fr. Brian Whelan for their continued help and support throughout the year.  A special word for the entire panel who represented their school in such a dignified manner throughout the season.

First Year Hurling

Wexford CBS ....8-8
Bridgetown ......4-6

The first years played their second match in two days and picked up a well deserved victory over the Bridgetown juvenile team in Pairc Charman on Friday (May 13th) in a fourteen-a-side game.
This victory puts the school into the Flo-Gas final against Ramsgrange where CBS will hope to successfully defend their title. There was plenty of experimentation carried out as CBS fielded two vastly different teams in each half.
The first years were helped by some second years (Dylan Hynes, Stephen Cullen, Luke Lambert, John Leacy and Mark Kavanagh) in the second half, who it was felt by management, needed game-time.
Stephen Kearney registered the first score with a point before Bridgetown lashed in two goals through their burly full-forward. However CBS struck back with points from Jesse Farrell and Kearney.
Farrell struck for two goals around the first quarter – the first following a nice pass from Joe Redmond and the second was a fine solo effort. Kevin Harte followed up with a goal but Bridgetown struck back with some points to cut the deficit.
John Hamilton got two points before Aaron McGuire pounced on a ball that came back off the post from Joe Redmond and bashed it to the net.
This left the half-time score at CBS 4-5 to Bridgetown 2-4.
The rain came down in bucket loads in the new half as CBS’s new team got to grips with Bridgetown. Dylan Hynes scored 1-1 before neat goals from Conor Coleman and Liam Rockett increased the CBS lead.
Bridgetown’s full-forward plundered his third and fourth goals before Mark Kavanagh and Conor Coleman pointed. Stephen Cullen had the last say when he caught a high ball and lashed it to the net.


Wexford CBS (first half): Mikey Lawlor; Padraig Rossiter, Cian Allen, Eoin Doyle; Gary Cullen, Rob Donnelly, Dillon Dixon; Jesse Farrell (2-1); Dillon Murray, John Hamilton (0-2), Kevin Harte (1-0); Aaron McGuire (1-0), Stephen Kearney (0-2, 1 free), Joe Redmond.
Wexford CBS (second half): Kevin Harte, Kevin Birney, John Leacy, Daniel Lynch; Michael McNulty, Aaron Nobbs, Stephen Rossiter; Dylan Hynes (1-1); Liam Rockett (1-0), Rob Donnelly, Adam Carroll, Mark Kavanagh (0-1); Conor Coleman (1-0), Stephen Cullen (1-0), Mikey Lawlor.

First Year Hurling

St. Peter’s .......................2-8
Wexford C.B.S................. 2-4


St. Peter’s came out on top in this entertaining challenge game played in Power Park (Thursday May 12th) by four points.
CBS were behind at half-time on a score of 2-4 to 1-2 with Turk Kearney grabbing the goal in the 25th minute. Turk pointed a free early in the game and Liam Rockett also fired over a point.CBS brought on all eight subs at half-time and this didn’t alter the flow of the game. St. Peter’s added four points. CBS scorers were Rob Donnelly who sauntered up from centre-back for a point.Aaron McGuire gave Jesse Farrell a great return pass and Farrell lashed the ball home. Liam Rockett registered his second score in the 50thminute.
Wexford C.B.S.: Eoin Doyle; Kevin Birney, John Hamilton, Daniel Lynch; Gary Cullen, Rob Donnelly (0-1), Dillon Dixon; Stephen Kearney (1-1, 0-1 free), Jesse Farrell (1-0); Aaron Nobbs, Joe Redmond, Stephen Rossiter; Michael McNulty, Stephen Cullen, Liam Rockett (0-2).
Subs (all half-time): Cian Allen for Stephen Cullen, Kevin Harte for Stephen Rossiter, Mikey Lawlor for Liam Rockett, John Leacy for Farrell, Aaron McGuire for McNulty, Dillon Murray for Doyle, Padraig Rossiter for Birney, Padraig Rossiter for Daniel Lynch.

Team: Ryan Furlong, Pierce Dooley, Dale Scallan, Lee Harpur, Brandon Nolan, Ashley Haughton, Dean Roche, Robin Dempsey, Keith Morrissey, Danny Fitzpatrick, Sean Pailing.

Beijing 2011

A report by student James Roche.


We left the school early Sunday morning and headed for Dublin airport for our connecting flight at London Heathrow. Here we left for our nine hour flight, which to a lot of us seemed an eternity as we were all hit by the fact we were going on a once in a lifetime trip to Beijing and were unable to sleep. Upon arrival we were greeted by our interpreters for our week stay Maggie and Toni, who worked for the U.C.D Confucius Institute.

Over the next week we embraced Chinese culture, language, history and cuisine. On the first few days we went to classes in the morning to learn the basics of the Chinese language, a famous Chinese song and the ancient art of calligraphy. These classes were held on campus of St. Paul American School, which is where we were staying, and taught by laoshi Chang. During our stay we went on several trips to historical landmarks, including the Forbidden City, Tian’an Men Square, The Great Wall, Qianmen St., Temple of Heaven and Temple of Earth and the Summer Palace. We were guided around these landmarks by our tour guide Emma, who gave us on inside knowledge on them and answered any of our questions. We also enjoyed trips to an acrobatic show and the Olympic Stadium and its environs. After the trip we all concluded that walking the Juyongguan pass at the Great Wall was the highlight of the trip for us all, except for the teachers who seemed to enjoy the shopping aspect of the trip a lot more..
We would like to thank Ms. Spellman for her hard work in organising the trip, and also to thank the two other teachers, Ms. Henneberry and Ms. Dagg for giving up their time to come.
