Welcome Message

You are very welcome to the website of the High School, Clonmel. Our school is one with a very long and proud tradition spanning well over one hundred years. We are honoured by the achievements of our past pupils and our current students alike. Those achievements have been academic, social, cultural, sporting and professional and testify to the fact that our mission statement has a very real presence within the ethos of our ERST (Christian Brothers) school. That statement guides us in promoting the personal, spiritual, physical, creative and academic development of our students and it acknowledges the support of the wider school community, and in particular all parents/guardians in promoting this vision.

The High School CBS, Clonmel played in the Corn úi Mhúirí quarter final on Wednesday, the 21st of January against St Brendan's of Killarney in Mallow at 1:30pm.

The Corn uí Mhúirí is the Munster A Senior football competition and is traditionally dominated by teams from Kerry and Cork. This year the High School qualified from their group by defeating West Limerick Colleges and St Facthna's of Skibbereen to reach the quarter finals. Although the High School won the very first competition in 1928, it is not known when they last reached this stage so it is a magnificent achievement for the players and management team of Tony Gleeson and Dave Nugent.
