 Supporting our local heroes! 

How proud the Boys’ School are of our two local heroes, Paddy and Brendan who played such influential parts in the wonderful Tipperary win on Sunday! What an achievement for both to have also been selected on the Sunday Game Team of the Year! Over the years both lads have been very generous in sharing their time and expertise with our boys, bringing great excitement to the school on every occasion. We hope that the achievements of September 4th are only the beginning of many more successes and rewards to come. Sincere congratulations and best wishes to all involved.
As we prepared for All-Ireland Sunday the boys put up a great display of blue and gold to honour their heroes. The week of the All Ireland has officially been declared ‘Blue and Gold Week’ in the school as we enjoy the wonderful winning feeling and anticipate a second All-Ireland Title for Brendan next weekend!
