    Coláiste Chríost Rí - Centre Stage at the National Famine Memorial

    At what was a truly wonderful occasion in University Colege Cork,  on Saturday last,  Coláiste Chríost Rí played a central role at the Famine Memorial Event.

    The event itself was a memorable occasion adorned by great ceremonial as well as an inspirational oration from Uachtarán na hEireann , Micheal D O hUigín.

    Following this, the teachers  and parents  accompanied the students as they made their way to attend  their excellent presentation on the Famine , which was duly visited by  President O hUigín as well as Professor  Patrick O Shea , President of University College Cork, (and past pupil of Coláiste Chríost Rí) 

    Uachtarán Ó hUigín then presented the school with a signed copy of 'The Atlas of the Irish Famine' (edited by another past pupil John Crowley of the Department of Geography UCC.) 

    We are immensely proud of the students involved , who at all times on Saturday conducted themselves with a maturity beyond their years.

    Our sincere congratulations go also  to Mr Seamas Ó Leannacháin and to Mr Barra O Ceallaigh.

    The students , pictured here with Uachtarán na hEireann Micheál D O hUigín,  as Professor O Shea prepares the presentation,  were Ben O Conchúir, Marc Ó Conchúir, Sean Meskell, Seosamh Mac Cafraigh, Luke Ó Éaalaithe and Luke O Donnchú. 

    It was a truly memorable day - one that will live long in the memory.
