Congratulations to our Girls ‘White’ Team, our Boys Team and our Mixed team who on Monday progressed to the Connaught Primary Spikeball finals following Monday’s Mayo deciders here in Charlestown.

Well done also also to our Girls (Green 2 ) team who also played so well in their respective group. We were delighted with the progress the children have made in such a short space of time. It was heartening to witness the improvement in confidence and skill level as the day progressed.

As mentioned both our Girls, Boys and Mixed teams have now qualified for the Connaught Finals which will take place in Loughrea, Co.Galway (Date to be confirmed). There are still lots of areas for further improvement and we look forward to working hard over the next month to prepare for this date.

Finally, a special word of thanks to Geraldine Finn for coaching the teams. Geraldine’s knowledge and expertise is invaluable alongside her interest in the game. We really appreciate this support.

Thank you also to Mr.Rushe for all his help in preparing the teams and to the Transition Year girls from St.Joseph’s Community College who gave the students such a great base through their coaching programme throughout the autumn.
