On the 19th October our school was presented with the National Flag and a copy of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic by members of Óglaigh na hÉireann, the Defence Forces, on the Centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Two 6th class pupils represented the school by reading a paragraph from the Proclamation and receiving the Irish Flag.
Congratulations to Charlie Raper who has been selected to play in goals for U-11 Midlands School Boys soccer team following trials with the FAI emerging talent programme.
Huge congratulations to Edel Daly on qualifying for a place on the National Youth Squad. This is a huge achievement for which she has worked very hard. Well done Edel, we are all very proud of you.
Well Done Killeen
Congratulations to all who represented the school in the Cumann na mBunscol final in St. Brendan’s Park on Wednesday 13th. It was a very close final between Killeen and Kinnitty/Roscomroe but Killeen were victorious in the end. It was a very exciting match and the huge support received gave the players great encouragement in the closing minutes.
Thanks to our coaches and mentors and to all parents who travelled to matches and help out with lifts during the year.
