Well done to the boys and girls football teams who made it through to the Cumann na mBunscol semi-finals this week. Unfortunately the boys were defeated by a stronger team on the day and while the girls competed well and showed great improvement throughout the competition, they also lost in a close and hard-fought game. Well done to our captains this year – Patrick Nolan and Caroline Roche – and thanks to Ms. Purcell for her work with the footballers.
