All Ireland U21 Football Final
Roscommon CBS would like to congratulate the 10 past pupils of the school who are members of the Roscommon U21 football panel. Matthew Whyte, Cathal Kenny, Thomas Fetherstone, Jack Earley and Michael Gunning (all from Oran); John McManus, Kieran Kilcline, Mark Healy and Mark Nally (all from Roscommon Gaels); and Philip Neilan (St. Ciarans and Fuerty) all attended the CBS.
They also all represented their school with distinction on the football pitch during their time here. It is fantastic for the school to see so many past students going on to represent their county.
Congratulations are also extended to both Eddie Lohan (Kilbride) and John Nolan (Roscommon Gaels) who are part of the management team. They are also past pupils of the CBS and represented the school on the football pitch.
The very best of luck to all as they prepare for the All Ireland final. They are a wonderful example to present students of the role that school football can play in a player’s development and furthermore what can be achieved with hard work, commitment and dedication.
They can be sure that the whole school will be roaring them on at 3pm on May 3rd in Tullamore.

Brother Madigan Visits CBS
Br. Pat Madigan – former principal of CBS Nenagh and CBS Clonmel – visited the students of CBS Roscommon last week.
It was a nostalgic occasion for Br. Pat as he reminisced about the times he spent with the Brothers were here in Roscommon, and living in the Monastery. Br. Pat also spoke of his days as a young school boy and then joining the Brothers.
Students were very interested in finding out what it was like living in the Monastery, particularly as it will soon be opened again in September as an Autism unit. It was a great opportunity for students to learn more about the history of the school, and its traditions, and how it links in with our future. Many thanks to Brother Pat for the visit.
