The pupils of 4th, 5th and 6th played in the Gaelic Grounds on Wednesday, October 26th. We were in the East Finals for primary schools. We played four matches in Doon in early October and we won them all. We qualified for the final against Nicker. It was a tough match. Nicker went two points ahead early on and then we showed our true spirit. We forged ahead and got a few goals. It finished 4 - 09 to 6 points. We received a cup to celebrate our victory.
