The boys had a trip to St. Kevin’s Boys Soccer Club where their 5 a side team performed brilliantly in a county wide tournament. The boys finished second in their group which was an excellent result as they were up against strong competition from schools from Newport, Roscrea and Clonmel. Following our impressive display in the 5 a side it was the turn of their U-11 and U-13 hurlers. The U-11 championship was run as a blitz this year and the boys after some tough encounters qualified from North Tipperary to participate in the county blitz in the coming weeks, well done to them! Finally the U-13 team made a winning start to their campaign with a win over Borrisokane in a keenly contested match.
We wish all our teams continued success in their respective competitions, as the saying goes, "Tús maith leath na hoibre."
