This year the school football team won their section of Division 1 for the third year in a row. The boys won every single match in their section. Unfortunately they were narrowly beaten in the county semi-final by Trim, who went on to become Division 1 County Champions on Saturday 17th November.

Now that the league has come to an end, Mr. Conroy and the two Mr. McDonalds have set up an internal school league. There’s a 3rd/4th class league made up of four teams – Kerry, Cork, Galway and Mayo and there’s a 5th/6th class league also made up of four teams – Meath, Dublin, Louth and Kildare. The leagues are open to everybody in these classes and it’s a great opportunity for the younger players to practice and improve their skills.

All league matches take place at lunchtime between 12:30 and 1:00 every day. For now we have two pitches available and so we play a match from both leagues most days. The leagues will run throughout the school year and will eventually culminate in two finals which will be played in June. Each year the medals for the winning finalists are presented at the end of year school presentation night.
