School League Final

Many firsts were created by our School League this year, most notable being the first set of triplets played in a School League and on one day 5 consecutive matches were played!

Our final was played by Eoin Casey’s Team v Sean Casey’s Team. Well done to the winners Sean Casey’s Team!  A special word of praise for all our participants who played with courage and speed and in defeat behaved with the utmost sportsmanship.

Thank you to Mr. Hussey for all his hard work to keep this most important tradition alive and well in our school!
