Our boys team played on a difficult and large hockey-astro pitch but to their credit battled hard to earn some well deserved performances against teams with high profile players. Unfortunately on the day it was not enough to progress to the latter stages of the competition. The lads went above and beyond to represent the school proudly as they always do and they have achieved so much this year, notably with them qualifying to the Dublin finals with only two 6th class boys should leave them full of optimism for next year.
Our girls team were equally as fantastic and earned themselves a spot in the final to play against Taney NS. Sadly they were unfortunate to be on the wrong end of a 2-1 result in a game that really could have gone either way. Grace showed that her halfway line winner against Kill O' The Grange wasn't a fluke by scoring another long-range rocket from an even further distance in the final. We learned after the game that the entire Taney squad play together on the same club team every week so to have come so close to beating them in itself was a massive achievement and shows how far the girls have come in so little time. The day ended on a very positive note with Alana Costello picking up the player of the tournament award which we are all extremely proud with. Well done Alana and very well deserved!!
Thanks again to parents for providing lifts to and from the venue and for their very much appreciated support all throughout this year. Also a massive thank you to Mr. O' Briain and for his help on the day with our boys team and to Ms. Moloney for her continued support with our girls team. If anyone took any videos/pictures of the day, please send them and and we can upload them here.
