Cheltenham at the Sem Mar 17

On Thursday last, 16th March, €1,325 was raised in aid of the Kerry Cancer Support Link Bus.  Cheltenham at the Sem is the epitome of fundraising fun in the context of an all boys school.  Featuring 1st year jockeys carried by 5th & 6th year horses, these highly competitive, highly entertaining jockey back races are a wonderful expression of excitement.  Cheered on by hundreds of our students, the boys battled it out on the sometime treacherous track in the Bishop’s field.  Thanks to Mr. Declan O’Donoghue for organising this wonderful event.

The winning combination on the day was 6th year pupil Robert Lee and 1st year pupil Gearóid Mulvihill.
