The tournament took place yesterday at the Irishtown Stadium in Ringsend with 25 other schools competing on the day in this qualifying competition.
We were put into a very competitive group of 6 teams assembled from all over the Dublin area including Naul, Wayside, Clondalkin, Eastwall, Ballyfermot and of course our very own Donnybrook.
The prize at stake was a place in the knock out stages of the Dublin Section of this prestegious competition.
Our Red Team obtained 5 wins out of 5 in the group stages without conceding a goal in the process, a feat which no other side in the competition can boast.
We then went on to win our quarter final 1-0 which now puts us through the semi finals of the Dublin Section, where we will compete against schools that have also qualified from their respective qualifying days.
Our Blue team also performed admirably and were up against some top quality opposition, but sadly on the day were not about to advance out of their group.
We are all extremely proud of the boys and of this significant achievement.
We now look forward to training again after the Easter break in preparation for the semi finals which are scheduled to take place on April 25th. (Venue TBA)
