Boys Narrowly Lose County Final

Our school football team lost narrowly against a much fancied Carrick team in the County Final at Pairc Esler on Saturday on a scoreline of 2-07 to 1-08. Our boys played with great heart and despite being 8 points down at half time closed the gap to just 1 point with time almost up. Unfortunately the heroic effort they put in in the second half just wasn't quite enough to lift the cup but they did themselves and our school proud.


Girls and boys training together


Our P6 girls and boys have the option of joining their respective school teams. They train each Thursday after school and take part in a number of cmpetitions throughout the year.


School GAA

Our school has Gaelic Football teams for both girls and boys. They train after school and participate in the various Cumann na Bunscoil competitions throughout the year, both indoor and outdoor. The school also has hurling and camogie teams who also train after school and participate in various competitions.
