Top Leaving Cert Results for Mark & Colin

One of Mr O’Leary’s final acts as Principal was to congratulate Mark Glynn & Colin Smyth on their fantastic Leaving Cert results & subsequently achieving their first choice in college.

Mark scored 625 points (6 H1s) & was offered Medicine in UCD.  For good measure he also achieved 2 H2s & was in the top 2% in the country.  Colin scored 600+ points & will study Science in UCD.

Both were awarded our Student of the Year award back in May, but it should also be noted that Mark & Colin also had a healthy interest in extra-curricular activities.

This year, Mark was crowned the All-Ireland, Leinster & South-Leinster 800m champion, while Colin is actively involved in Drama – including a performance of Macbeth by Kildare Youth Theatre in May.

We would like to wish both of them every success in their step in life.
