19 May

What a Monday morning we had at at very wet Swinford Amenity Park. Both our teams came through thrilling Quarter Finals to progress to the County Semi Finals at McHale Park on this coming Wednesday.

First up was our boys who defeated Midfield N.S. on a scoreline of 6-3 to 4-3. This game ebbed and flowed all through with our boys showing great heart, playing very much as a team. All our players played an important part in this victory particularly in the second half when we came under real pressure from a very good Midfield team.

The same can also be said of our girls who played shortly after our boys against Meelick N.S. We came through another very stern test by 8-8 to 5-6 with all the girls playing starring roles. We were delighted particularly in the second half to see some of our younger students from 4th class gaining great confidence playing with the older girls and also to see these girls doing so well.

It really is fantastic for our school to have two teams representing us at the semi final stage.

The fixtures for the semi finals in McHale Park (Back Pitch) on Wednesday are as follows…

11.00 a.m. Boys St.Attracta’s N.S. V Mount Pleasant N.S. Pitch 2
11.45 a.m. Girls St.Attracta’s N.S.V Carrowholly N.S.Westport Pitch 2

All support for the teams would be greatly appreciated !
