Weekends at Rockwell


Weekends in Shanahan Hall

Weekends are somewhat less structured, giving Seven day boarders some much needed rest. However, routine is important, and there are activities organised for boarders who wish to take part.

Saturday study from 10am to 12pm is compulsory for 2nd to 6th year and optional for first years and overseas students attend English Language classes. A trip to the local town occupies the afternoon. Boarders can take part in games and leagues organised by Residence Staff over the weekends in soccer, pool, table football. Alternatively, there is a supervised boarders swim on Saturday evening, and a selection of board games available freely in the common room.

On Sunday morning, all boarders attend mass. Once a month, excursions are organised to give boarders an opportunity to see some local and national history and culture. Sample excursions include Cahir Castle, Mitchelstown 7 caves, Kilkenny Castle as well as paintballing, karting, ice-skating and bowling. These fees are charged separately to the reserve account. Costs are kept as low as possible, and we encourage all boarders to go.
