Hi, my name is Johnny Waters. I attended Coláiste Abbáin from 1994 until 1999.I have great memories from there and I made great friends there also to which I still keep in touch with. My fondest memory would have to be winning an All-Ireland Vocational school football medal. As I am a big GAA fan that was big highlight. I work now as a self-employed carpenter /supervisor and I am currently working on a project on Kilkenny ,which is an old listed building that holds an enormous amount of heritage and culture and it demands a lot of care and attention and is very time consuming ,but once it is completed it will be fantastic. To bring a building over 150 years from a rundown derelict state back to its original condition will give me great satisfaction.
A lovely write up by a past student. Fantastic to see our hard working past students doing so well for themselves
