One of six in the country - Coláiste Lorcáin Student gets 12 As in Junior Cert

One of only six students in Ireland, Miranda Faul, has received 12 As in this year’s Junior Certificate Exams. Miranda, a TY student in Coláiste Lorcáin, Castledermot has been heralded an ‘all rounder’ by Principal Eric Gaughran. Miranda, who sat higher level in twelve JC subjects, is a keen sportswoman as well as being academically bright. She is particularly passionate about music and art. ‘The results are once again outstanding this year and we as a small school community are equally as proud of the achievements of the other 60 students who sat JC this year as we are of Miranda” said Principal Eric Gaughran.
