A New World Champion

Congratulations to Mona Mc Sharry, a Fifth Year student in Coláiste Cholmcille, Ballyshannon, on her amazing achievements at the World Junior Swimming Championships in Indianapolis last month.

Mona, from Grange, Co. Sligo, is now the World Champion in 100m breaststroke! Following her win in that competition, she was placed fourth in the 200m a couple of days later. These are both truly fantastic achievements for Mona, a member of the Ballyshannon Marlins swimming club, and we couldn't be more proud of her here at Coláiste Cholmcille.

Mona beat the Irish record for the 100m breaststroke and knocked three tenths of a second off her own personal best from the Irish Open earlier this summer. This latest win continues a highly successful summer for Mona, having won the World and European 100m Breaststroke Gold, World Bronze and European Gold in the 50m Breaststroke and European 200m Breaststroke Silver.

Mona's hometown of Grange turned out in force for her homecoming on Sunday night, and a few days later the student body at Coláiste Cholmcille filled the Assembly Area to welcome Mona back to school.
