SCÓR na nÓG: Would any young Rock player or supporter like to represent The Rock by singing in Scór na nÓg (Faoi 17)? Or as part of a five-person (boys or girls) group of singers who’d like to try their luck as a ballad group? Or being in a grúpa ceoil? Or as one of four in a table quiz competition? Come on, Rock!
COLÁISTÍ….ROCK REPS IN COLLEGE GAMES: (i) Best wishes to the Mercy Mounthawk boys who, after a good victory over Coláiste Choilm, Baile an Chollaigh, in the Corn Uí Mhuirí (U19) competition will face Coláiste na Sceilge (‘Sceilg’) ar an 7ú Nollaig (Wednesday), de réir an sceidil.

Messrs Marc agus Rory Ó Loinsigh agus Gavin Ó Cathasaigh, shone brightly and although the teams remained at stalemate at half-time, muintir Neidín outpaced ár laochra Gael fhéin towards the middle of the second half. Unfortunately, despite contesting the match until the last minute, ní raibh rith an ráis lenár mbuachaillí. After the final whistle they shook hands with worthy Kenmare opponents en route, no doubt, to continue a quality run of form. As for buachaillí an choláiste Ghaelaigh…..they have sprung back from their marginal loss i rith na seachtaine scoile and are more than ready to hit the ground running as their next ties approach. I bhfad uainn an t-olc agus lá eile ag an bPaorach! (D.Ó Loinsigh)(iii) Neidín proved impressive opponents against ár ngaiscígh Dé Luain (14ú) i Lios Treighe. The Gaelcholáiste’s foireann Faoi 16½ were kitted and booted on an agreeably wintry morning and this grit to leave the toasty classrooms for a fresh breezy morning outside was indication of their unquenchable will as they headed into a tough tie. They battled hard as the first score went their way. While each of the The Rock stars,
