'The Countie of Leinster'

A map entitled 'The Countie of Leinster' (1610), which for years sat in the Maintenance Department at St. Columba's College has recently been re-framed. It is certainly an old piece (although not as old as the date the map depicts) and may have originally come form a book. It appears to be hand-painted and is marked with countless place names and townlands including Knokyn (Knocklyon), Cromlyn (Crumlin) and Molingar (Mullingar).

Transition Year Movie Module

The Transition Year's Movie Module continues with 'The Cell'.  Directed in 2000 by Tarsem Singh the movie tells the story of Catharine Deane, a psychotherapist who is part of a revolutionary new treatment which allows her mind to literally enter the mind of her patients. Her experience in this method takes an unexpected turn when an FBI agent comes to ask for a desperate favour. They had just tracked down a notorious serial killer, Carl Stargher, whose MO is to abduct women one at a time and place them in a secret area where they are kept for about 40 hours until they are slowly drowned. Unfortunately, the killer has fallen into an irreversible coma which means he cannot confess where he has taken his latest victim before she dies. Now, Catherine Deane must race against time to explore the twisted mind of the killer to get the information she needs, but Stargher's damaged personality poses dangers that threaten to overwhelm her.
