Well done to our under 13 footballers who took part in a blitz in cashel last Friday. Unfortunately we didn’t qualify from the blitz as we were defeated by an excellent Ballylooby team and we wish them well in the next round. All our players, led by captain, Rory Heffernan, performed admirably on the day and had a terrific contest with Killenuale in the last match.
Wednesday certainly was a busy day for the school and we were thrilled to come away from Semple Stadium as Roinn D under 13 county champions. Our team showed incredible skill and determination to overcome an excellent Kilruane team and captain David Costigan capped off a remarkable year by winning cross country, football, soccer and hurling county titles with the school. Great credit is due to Morgan Lanigan for all his hard work coaching classes during the year.
Huge congratulations to Tom, Lucy and Jack who represented the school in the Primary Game matches this year. It is a fantastic honor for the school to have had three sixth class students chosen for these matches. Well done.
