Our Day in Croke Park

Well done to the Senior Boys Hurling team who took part in the Hurling final in Croke Park today. They gave it their all in the match but unfortunately we did not get the win we all wanted. Thanks to the boys, Mr Moore and Mr. De Paor who all put in so much hard work during the year to get us to the final.  Well done to all the great supporters who cheered the boys on in Croker and welcomed them home with a fitting guard of honour for our team.
