Ploughing Championships 2019

On Thursday, Nenagh College Transition Year & Agricultural Science students, accompanied by their teachers Ms. Duffy & Ms. Kearney, joined thousands of visitors at this year’s Ploughing Championships in Carlow. The outing afforded students practical insights to accompany the theoretical aspects of their Agricultural Science studies.

This included the opportunity to see first-hand conventional and vintage ploughing. Among the many exhibits were: Livestock breeds/management/housing, farm equipment and machinery. In parallel with the agricultural aspects, was an emphasis on traditional crafts, sports and representation from many third level institutions and government departments.

It was a pleasant and informative day for all and this year experienced the highest ever attendance at the event (297,000).

Change of date for issue of Junior Cert results 2019

In publishing the 2019 examination timetables, the State Examinations Commission (SEC) indicated that as a result of the need to prioritise activities associated with the Leaving Certificate appeals, the results of the 2019 Junior Cycle examinations would issue to schools in late September.  Meeting the earlier Leaving Certificate appeal results issue date remains the focus of our efforts and we have not as yet published a definitive date for the Junior Cycle results. We recognise that schools increasingly need to have the date confirmed for planning purposes.

At this time I can advise that the results of the 2019 Junior Cycle examinations will be in schools and published online on Friday 4th October 2019.  The change to the issue date for the results this year has presented the SEC with the opportunity to respond to requests from stakeholders to release the Junior Cycle results on a Friday instead of the traditional Wednesday issue day.

Kind Regards

State Examinations Commission
