18 memories of Coláiste Chiaráin that will take you right back

Time of our lives.

COLÁISTE CHIARÁIN MASSIVE, the biggest legends this side of the coast.

1. It was the best craic Gaeltacht

AND it was in the nicest little spot in Galway.

2. You spent SO much of your time on this patch of sand

Rain or shine! Mostly rain… Trá an Dóilín was the place to be.

4. It’s full of messers

If you want to learn, off to Chamuis with ya! Chiarain is for the craic!

5. The day trip to Galway was so exciting

Everyone, pile on the bus and take out your money from the school bank. We’re getting Supermacs.

6. You were stuffed in a house with a heap of girls or guys you didn’t know for three weeks

But you sat under your mna tí’s name with pride.

7. You had many walks down these roads

Those bushes are just so easy to hide things in…

8. You shifted someone in a GAA jersey, GUARANTEED

If you leave Coláiste Chiaráin without shifting a lad or lady in their county colours, you will fail your Irish oral.

9. You were Cursa A, B, or C for life

Never switch, even if they try to make you.

10. Mam visited you on family day

Sunday, the day when your mam realised she can’t cope for two weeks without you.


11. The ceili’s were the BEST

Held in this hall. Cinema themes,

12. You lived for 1pm when classes would be over and you could get stuck into the activities

15. The best 99 could be gotten in the Eurospar down the main street

16. You had a rivalry with Cholumba

There’s only room for one school in An Cheathrú Rua.


17. You’ll never quite get over the shock of having mass in Irish
