    Pobalscoil na Tríonóide in Youghal

    students of Pobalscoil na Tríonóide in Youghal

    It may be unlucky for some, but Friday 13th bought an unexpected surprise for the students of Pobalscoil na Tríonóide in Youghal. Awaiting them as they arrived was the sight of a fully rigged sail-boat surrounded by members of Youghal Sailing Club; the newest sports club in town. 

    "We're here as part of our Membership Drive" said Patrick Buttimer, Club Commodore. "We're starting our activities just after Easter with a shore based sailing safety training course. Safety is a real priority for us, so we want to be sure that any new sailors have joined us before then". 

    The Junior members are a big part of Youghal Sailing Club and they were keen to talk about their sailing adventures with their fellow students. The teaching staff were interested too stopping by to learn more about the Club and the activities planned this year.

    "These students are the future of sailing in our town”. Said Martin Finn Club Secretary. “Some of them already compete in national championships and, who knows, maybe one day it could be the Olympics. But sailing is not just about racing, members will discover the sheer fun of sailing here among friends. Their journey starts today, with our Club."

    The students seemed to agree, showing a lot of interest. For many of them rekindling a link with the sea that is a part of their family's heritage. It some cases its skipped a generation but today’s students are rediscovering the advantages and fun of our fantastic coast.

    Youghal Sailing Club would like to thank the School and all staff for welcoming us and making our event a success.
