The chess club continues each Thursday after school and all players are showing great improvement.

Well done to 5th class pupils Patricia Gallagher and Sinéad O’Reilly who competed at the Co Wexford Primary Schools Chess Competition in New Ross on Jan 23. Sinéad came away with 5 out of 7 possible points to place joint third U-12, while Patricia, having come up against some tough opponents, took 2 1/2 points. Well done to both, they represented the school very well indeed.

Bree Sports 2015


The mercy girls were in top form at the Bree sports yesterday, bringing home a huge haul of medals.  Between them the girls managed to win eleven gold medals, one silver and one bronze.  Each of the athletes put in tremendous performances and did their school proud.  First up to win a medal was Tara Cullinane who won bronze in the girls U12 high jump.  Not to be out done Roisin O Reilly did one better and managed to win a silver medal in the girls U14 high jump.  We were then onto the sprint finals where Ailbhe White powered home to claim victory in the U11 girls 100m.  There were some nervous faces on the start line when Sabia Doyle appeared  and they were right to be, as she also whizzed on home to win the girls U12 100m in style. Danika Gilshinan was in flying form also in the girls u14  400m and lead the field home  capturing a gold medal for herself.   Although  Sinead O Reilly wasn’t in the  medals she did manage a personal best in the girls U11 long jump.  Ellie Devereux, Jamie Benson, Annoushka Nolan and Abbie Bolger put in brave performances in their races and well done girls.

The last event of the day were the hotly contested relay races.  Amber Henderick, Sinead O Reilly, Isabella Gainford and Ailbhe White managed to outclass twenty four other teams and claim victory in the girls U10 relay.  Next up were the girls U12 relay team consisting of Nadia Moussatti, Danika Gilshinan, Tara Cullinane and Sabia Doyle.  Could the Mercy girls do a double? It had never been done before.  Not only did they do the double but they did it in style with metres to spare on the home straight.

The path to the boot of the car to claim your medal was well worn by the Mercy Girls.  A huge thank you to all the parents that travelled on the day and helped out by giving lifts or organising the girls into their races.  Thank you to Senan O Reilly, Kevin White, Ann Gilshinan, Nadias mum, Ellies dad, Annoushkas parents and little sister, and to Ambers parents who travelled up just in time to see Amber claim victory in the relay race.  The girls went home with a little sunburn on their faces but with a lot of fantastic memories.  Watch out Bree 2016 our boys will be in action!

Well done Girls.

Active Schools’ Week

Posted on May 2nd, 2013 in Activities,Latest News by Mr. Gately  Tagged

The week of April 29-May 3rd was designated “Active Schools’ Week” and thankfully the weather improved so the school playground was a hive of activity every day. Many classes took extra PE time. We also had Jason Kehoe from the Vols in doing GAA coaching and Noel Ferguson from the Wexford Wanderers doing rugby. As if that wasn’t enough our Rounders, Camogie and Soccer teams all played matches and our golfers were preparing for the up-coming schools’ cup in Rosslare.

If the weather stays good then every week will be Active Schools’ Week in The Mercy School.

Calling all wannabe chess grandmasters!

How would you like to meet up once a week after school to play chess for an hour? Whether you reckon you can check-mate your opponent – blind-folded – in six moves or, on the other hand, you are still unsure how the knight can jump around the place like he does, we want to see you! If you have a chess-loving mum or dad who can lend a hand please bring them with you. We will have an introductory get-together on Thursday 17th February straight after school (2.45pm) in the Rainbow Room. Thereafter we will meet at the same time each week.

We may also need some more adult helpers so please let us know if you would like to get involved.
