All Ireland Schools Indoor Climbing Competition


On Wednesday 7th March the School was represented at the All Ireland Schools Indoor Climbing Competition in Dublin for the first time.

A joint CCF/ Mountaineering Club team consisting of Mark Greer, David Stewart, Conor Brolly and Bailie Kirkwood, from the Sixth Form were victorious in being placed in first position – beating last year’s winners St David’s Catholic Boys School by over 10 points!


In the individual rankings, Mark Greer finished in first place closely followed by David Stewart, with Conor Brolly in sixth and Bailie Kirkwood in seventh place.

Over 40 sixth form competitors and 70 junior competitors from 15 schools took part, with Inst the only school from Northern Ireland.

Congratulations to the boys on their exceptional achievement.
