A huge congratulations to Ms Quirke and Ms Byrne for their collaborative work with TY students who won the Mental Health expressions competition in the Riverside Hotel on Tuesday night. It was an amazing visual and auditory production and a credit to the teachers and students involved. We are extremely proud of their achievements.




The annual craft fair will now take place in the evening as a fundraising activity in Coláiste Abbáin. 



"I attended Coláiste Abbáin between 1994 and 1999, and I enjoyed my time there immensely. I loved the mix of academic, sporting and extra-curricular activities.

My main interests back then were sport and music, and it was the latter that I pursued after the Leaving Cert. I did a course which covered the areas of music technology, sound engineering, event production and radio, and pretty unexpectedly, I got my first job in radio in 2000 when I joined the sports team at South East Radio.

After three years there, I moved to Waterford to become part of the team at Ireland's first regional radio station - Beat 102-103, which launched in July 2003. Initially, I focused solely on sports journalism but in 2006 a new breakfast programme was launched and I was asked to be one of the presenters. Almost thirteen years later, Beat Breakfast continues to grow. We've been all over the south east and beyond, covering music festivals, sporting, and cultural events and getting to meet people from all walks of life. It's a very unique job and one I've always enjoyed.

I'm fortunate to have been invited back to Colaiste Abbain on a number of occasions - most recently for the official opening of the new building. I was blown away by the new facilities and I feel very jealous of today's students!

I wish the college every success in the future."VBS


It is lovely to see the new design and layout chosen by our new editor Brandon Marshall who is certainly rising to the challenge and taking great pride in his work. 



A sincere thank you to all members of staff and students who made positive contributions to our Open Night. We had a huge turnout again this year from a much broader range of schools with enrolment forms coming from Bree, Rathgarogue (New Ross), Glynn, Clonroche, Taghmon, Caroreigh, Donard, Raheen, Courtnacuddy, St Mary’s Enniscorthy, Adamstown etc. The feedback from parents has been very positive and they are very thankful to those staff members who facilitated guided tours on the night.

A sincere thank you to our Parents Association who played an active role on the night providing refreshments.
