CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR FOOTBALLERS!!!

November 8th, 2016

MKM21939 (3) FD5C9105A huge “shout-out” for our girls’ Gaelic Football Team who emerged triumphant in their final in Croke Park today! After an uncertain start, during which their opponents, Scoil an Seachtar Laoch, Ballymun scored 1-1 without reply, our girls rose to the occasion and ran out comprehensive winners in the end. They were really brilliant and we are all very, very proud of their achievement in winning the Tadgh Kenny Shield.

We also pay tribute to Ms. McCaw, Mr. Byrne and Mr. Lehmann for their work with the girls over the last few months, in getting them in shape to achieve such a feat! We’d also like to say a big “THANK YOU” to Clanna Gael / Fontenoy and in particular, their coach, Rachael Byrne for all the ongoing support and generosity..
