Class action for LGBTI+ students

Owen Ryan reports on an initiative at Saint Caimin’s to bring about a culture of acceptance regardless of sexuality HOMOPHOBIC bullying has cast a dark shadow over Irish secondary schools for many years and blighted thousands of young lives. Name calling, intimidation and sometimes violence against young people who identify as LGBTI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Intersex) or even suspected of being so, has been widespread in many schools. While the country enthusiastically passed the same sex marriage referendum, has had a gay taoiseach and gay sports stars, discrimination based on sexuality is still a concerning and prevalent issue among Irish teenagers. Given that virtually every year group in every secondary school must have LGBTI+ members, the impact of homophobia on young people can only be seen as hugely damaging. However there are some efforts to fight back against it, and in St Caimin’s in Shannon teachers Cora Guinnane and Chloe Morey are helping to run a group for …

A big test for Clare camogie

For the sixth year-in-a-row, Clare begin their Munster Senior Camogie Championship campaign against Cork. On Sunday the Banner side will travel to the Cork camogie grounds to take on the Leesiders at 3pm. The same counties will also meet in the curtain-raiser, the first round of the junior championship. If Clare’s task wasn’t hard enough, they face into Sunday’s game without team captain Orlaith Duggan, who is out with an achilles injury. Acknowledging that it is a huge task, Clare manager Trish O’Grady noted, “Cork have been at the business end of both the Munster and All-Ireland championships for the last number of years. They were beaten in the recent league final and they won’t have been happy with their performance on that occasion, so they will be targeting an improved display this week”. Apart from Duggan, Clare expect to have a full strength squad at their disposal. A number of the team that helped Clare get to the All-Ireland …

Clare one step from camogie semi-finals

By Seamus Hayes Clare 1-10 Galway 0-8 CLARE moved a step closer to a place in the last four in the National senior camogie league when they defeated All-Ireland champions, Galway in the first of the play-off games at Corofin on Thursday evening. The opening half was a very evenly-matched affair, ending with the sides level at 1-3 to 0-6. Rebecca Hennelly was responsible for five of Galway’s points from frees. Niki Kaiser was magnificent for Clare though and finished with a tally of 1-5. The goal came after Niamh O’Dea offloaded to her after a strong run, the Newmarket on Fergus woman found the net from a tight angle. All star Chloe Morey had her first outing of the season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury last year and she excelled in an outstanding full-back line that also included Máire McGrath and Carol O’Leary. Her long-distance free-taking was right out of the top drawer and she defied her …
