UPCOMING EVENT APRIL 26

Rockwell Fun Run/Walk 10 km in aid of THE STUART MANGAN APPEAL

This is a 10km charity run or walk in the grounds of Rockwell College as part of the Stuart Mangan fundraising appeal on Sunday 26th April at 2pm.

Stuart is a past pupil of Rockwell College and was a member of the last cup winning team of 2001. On Sunday April 5th 2008, a simple tackle in a club rugby game in London left Stuart with a devastating spinal injury. Categorized as C1 Complete, he is completely paralysed from the neck down and unable to breathe without a ventilator. He requires 24- hour medical care for the rest of his life.

A talented sportsman, he loved to travel and speaks five languages. Stuart has shown incredible courage and is determined to deal positively with his altered circumstances. Stuart’s care will cost millions and this special event will help in some small way.

The entry fee for adults is 20 euro, students under 18 10 euro, or a family may enter for 50 euro. The use of sponsorship cards is not required. You may enter from the link below up to Friday April 24th 8 p.m. After that contact Rockwell college at 062 – 61444 or Ann Mulcahy 087-2593488. You may also pick up an entry form at Kennedy’s chemist in Cashel and Dermot O Brien’s chemist, the Square in Cahir, or just turn up on the day.

Registration will take place in the Gym from 12 p.m.  onwards, so come early to avoid delays. It is open to all ages with different categories, namely under 15 and 18, Senior and Masters. All Competitors will receive their race number at registration and a certificate at the finish line. Changing facilities are available adjacent to the gym for all. Car parking will be available at the large tarmac area. The back gates will remain closed for the event, so entry to the event is by the main gates

The run/walk is 10 km, starting at the front of the school stretching through the farm, out to the back gates, around the scenic lake and finishes at the pavilion down by the rugby pitches. This is a family day out; games, face painting and activities will be laid for the younger ones.
Refreshments will take place in the senior ref after the event, which is followed by presentations at 4.30 p.m. Stuart’s parents will be present at the event; all participants are welcome to catch up with friends and past pupils
Denis Leamy will be attending the event with the Triple Crown and Championship awards. A raffle will take place in the Senior Refectory, with such prizes as a signed rugby ball from the Munster squad, 2 Heineken cup semi-final tickets and many spot prizes.

Many thanks to all our generous sponsors for the day, who have made this event possible.
Also we must mention a certain group of adults who under the guidance of Ann Mulcahy have trained for this event for the last five Wednesday evenings in preperation for the 10km. They have shown great determination and are a huge inspiration to us all.
It’s all about people; we greatly appreciate everyone’s support and look forward to seeing familiar faces and friends next Sunday in Rockwell

February 2009

On Sunday 8th February the Eircome/FAI International Soccer Awards will be presented at a gala dinner to be held at the City West Hotel in Dublin.  The programme will be televised live on RTE from 8 p.m.  Rockwell has a special interest in these awards this year as one of those nominated for Schools’ Soccer Player of the Year is Peter Acheson, a Rockwell graduate of 2008.  Peter has been nominated for this award on the basis of his performances last year when representing Rockwell and his country.  Peter was on the Irish team which had an historic victory over England at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light last March, and he played for Ireland against Scotland, N. Ireland and Wales also.  Peter is a very talented sportsman.  A centre half in soccer, he also played minor hurling and football for Tipperary for the past two seasons.  Not surprisingly Peter was the recipient of the “Sportsman of the Year” award at Rockwell last summer. We wish him well on the 8th February when he will be mixing with the ‘greats’ of Irish soccer including the threesome who have been nominated for the International Player of the Year award:  Kevin Doyle (Reading), John O’Shea (Manchester United) and Shay Given (Manchester City).
