Staff and students of Beech Hill College Monaghan are extremely proud of the achievements of Éabha Campbell and Caitríona Sherlock and we extend warm congratulations to both girls.
Éabha Campbell is a 5th year student in Beech Hill College. Éabha retained the crown of National Junior Baker at the Ploughing Championships held in Screggan, Co. Offaly this year. Last year it was for her cupcakes and this year it was for her spiced centenary muffins which were inspired by a recipe for ‘gur’ cake which would have been sold in Dublin in 1916. Éabha bakes regularly with her mother Deanna who has a business (D’s cakes) baking delicious cakes for weddings and special occasions. In addition to this Éabha thoroughly enjoys Home Economics in Beech Hill College and is considering a career in catering and hospitality. Congratulations to Éabha who has won the fantastic prize of a trip for the entire Truagh foróige club to Delphi adventure centre, €1,000 bursary for college and her muffins to be sold in Aldi for a year.
Caitríona Sherlock is a 6th year pupil in Beech Hill College who sang the National Anthem at the Ladies All Ireland Final between Cork and Dublin, in Croke Pk. on the 25th of Sept. Caitríona submitted a video of her singing the National Anthem to the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and beat off stiff competition from 100’s of entries to be chosen for this accolade. On the day of the final Caitríona met President Michael D. Higgins which was a huge honour and was interviewed by Daithí Ó Se. Caitríona loves music in Beech Hill College, she plays an active part in the 90 student strong choir and is planning on pursuing a career in music next year.
