Our students were privileged to go to a presentation by well known Sligo-born actress and author Pauline McGlynn in Ballymote library.

The students returned tired but full of praise for the programme. Pastoral Visit The Principal invited Bishop Kelly, the Bishop of Achonry, to Corran College for a Pastoral visit.
Following class visits, the Bishop celebrated a "Mass of Remembrance" with Fr. James McDonagh and Fr. Greg Hannon.
Ms Kinsella and her U-16 Basketball team had an early departure for a blitz in Letterkenny.
An 18-15 defeat by Loreto, Letterkenny, in the last game eliminated our team from the competition. Soccer Blitz Both our first and second year boys and the senior girl's teams and their respective coaches travelled to Cleveragh Sports Complex to participate in a Sligo VEC organised soccer blitz.
Our first and second year boy's team returned home with trophies after winning the event.
This victory complements the girls victory in a similar blitz before the mid term break. The future of soccer is very promising in Corran College!
