Our camogie and hurling team were in the Cumann na mBunscol Group B Final on Tuesday the 17th of May. The teams were very hard working and were excited for the final.
Both teams were up against Kinnitty on the day. The lads were very close with a goal from Harry Larkin and a goal from Darragh Carty. Everyone tried their best and that’s all we could’ve hoped for. In the end we lost by 1 goal (1 goal is the same as 2 points).
The girls redeemed us with a heroic win of 12,7 Killeen to 2,1 Kinnitty. Brilliant goals were scored by Juliet O’Brien, Ruby Oakley, Ella Stokes and Ali Smyth. The girls were over the moon with their win and hope it carries throughout the years.
On Wednesday after lunch the camogie team got awarded with their medals by the school principal, Ms Whelahan. The whole school was watching and waving flags for our school team.
After the medal presentation, the school surprised both teams with food from the chippers. Everyone enjoyed the food and we hope everyone had a blast at the games!
A special thanks to Mr McArdle, Ms Dynan, Ger Oakley, Mike Larkin and Tom Carty for training us and we hope we will have mighty teams next year, and a huge thanks to all our supporters and parents for driving us to every single training or match.
