Our Senior Boys’ Footballers took part in a Cumann na mBunscol blitz last Friday in Newbridge. The Boys were defeated by a strong Lackagh NS side in their first match but they played with great pride and determination in the second match and drew against St. Patrick’s NS. Well done to all the boys who took part.
Our Senior Girls’ Footballers took part in their blitz last Wednesday in Castlemitchell. They defeated Kilmead NS in their first match but they were pipped by just two points in their final match against Churchtown NS. The Girls played some fantastic football and they should be really proud of their efforts.
