Our boys team played three games in the East Limerick 9-a-side in Boher on Wednesday, October 4th. They were up against Caherelly, Murroe and Nicker. They won all three and qualified for final in East Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds on Wednesday October 25th. In the final the boys had a good win against Murroe and brought home silverware for our trophy cabinet! Well done to all. A celebration was held in the school for boys and girls football teams who have played great football this term.

Boys Mini Sevens competition has yet to be rearranged following postponement during bad weather.

Gaelic Grounds 25-10-17

We played in the East Limerick Final yesterday in the Gaelic Grounds. We played against Murroe. We dominated most of the match. For some of us it was our first time playing in the Gaelic Grounds. It was a real honour and we enjoyed it a lot. We began training back in September and we were successful in all out matches. Our top scorers yesterday were Shane, Evan, Dylan and myself. After the match we were presented with the cup which we can keep for a year. Mr. Enright will get it inscribed and it will be put into the trophy press.
