TY Drama - A Midsummer Night's Dream (with a twist)

Rehearsals are well under way for this year’s Transition Year production of a Mid Summer Nights’s Dream (with a twist) with over 50 students taking to the stage under the watchful eye of directors Ann Blake and Niamh Bowen.

A Mid Summer Night’s Dream is a tale of two worlds, of fairies and humans. In Ann Blake and Marie Boylan’s re-write of this classic Shakespearean play, the fairy world is viewed through the folklore of Ireland, where the Irish fairies trick and fool the royal Athenians in a fun and fast paced comedy of mistaken identity, marital discord, and pure tomfoolery.

Our Transition Year show this year, will be staged in the exquisite surroundings of Dance Limerick, a repurposed church set in the architectural beauty of Limerick’s Georgian Square - St. John's Square.

This play brings music and magic, comedy and crazy, to the stage, showcasing the best of transition year talent, accompanied by live music and stunning costumes and props, all bespoke for this show. 

Performance dates are Wednesday January 16th and Thursday January 17th 2019.
Show starts at 8pm.

Tickets are available from the school office 061- 451447. Adults 15 / Students 10.

Senior Boys Hockey

sporting-limerick-smallNovember 27th 2018

Villiers Senior Boys Hockey side travelled to Waterford last Wednesday to take on the current All Ireland Schools Champions Newtown in the 1/4 final of the Munster Schools Cup.
The Limerick side avenged a recent loss to the same opposition in the All Ireland Qualifiers with a 2-1 victory in what was a fiercely contested match between two quality sides that have developed a real rivalry. 
Villiers got off to a perfect start with Eli Hannon scoring an opportunist goal in the first few minutes to unsettle the host team. The visitors then consolidated their lead towards the end of the first half with a well taken goal by striker Quinten Eacrett.  

The Villiers defence was rock solid and withstood some late pressure from Newtown. Eventually the pressure counted as the Waterford side converted a controversial penalty stroke through Ben Johnson to reduce the arrears. There was a late chance for Newton to equalise but Villiers keeper Leon Mullally pulled off a vital save to ensure victory for the Limerick side. 
Villiers: Leon Mullally GK, Sam Lilburn (Capt.), Bryan Smith, Christian Oggel, Adam Gardiner, Marcus Ryan, Stephen Tutty, Garrett Sparling, Cian Sparling, Eli Hannon, Quinten Eacrett, Christopher Ryan, Kristoffer Yohansson, Guellermo Espinos, Reuben Wheeler. Head Coach: Brian Gray. Manager: George Blackwell.
