All-Ireland Order of Knights of St. Columbanus Winners


Mr Seamus McDonald, from The Order of Knights of St. Columbanus, visited Rathmore to congratulate and present pupils with awards for their success in the Knights of St. Columbanus essay writing competition. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Order of Knights of St. Columbanus changed the format of the competition from public speaking to an essay writing competition. Senior pupils were tasked with the challenge of writing 1,500-2,000 words on the areas of Social Media and the Gospel, Justice and Peace, Living the Christian life and Young Christians. With 141 applicants across Ireland, we are absolutely delighted that Roisin Gormley was the overall All-Ireland winner and that three of our pupils achieved success in the Ulster region of the competition. Patrick Devlin achieved 2nd and Katie Sesay and Logan McMahon were placed Joint 3rd. Roisin’s essay will now be published in the official Knights of St. Colum
