TY Pilgrimage to Knock & Croagh Patrick

E-mail Print PDF

On Monday 4th April  2016 thiry-one TY students departed Coláiste Choilm accompanied by Miss Kelleher and Mr. O'Hara for a two day Pilgrimage. 

On Monday we were given a tour of the newly refurbished Knock basilica and also the museum on the grounds. At midday we joined other pilgrims for the celebration of the holy Eucharist. Our day finished with a visit to the Cenacalo community house for reformed addicts whose motto is 'work, friendship & prayer'. We were humbled by the moving testimony of one of the residents who shared his life story with us.
The following day in glorious weather we followed in the footsteps of St. Patrick and climbed the 'Reek', or as it is better known Croagh Patrick.
A fantastic time was had by all.

Con Moran, Donal Òg Coleman and Hugh O Connor (T.Y.) were tasked with the challenge of adopting Slovakia's stance on the very topical issue of 'European Migration' and had to debate wether or not Slovakia has the resources to welcome immigrants into their country. The three Transition Year students exercised their public speaking and debate writing skills on the day.
