What a week it’s been for our sports stars who have all shown such independence, motivation, perseverance.

On Monday, our football teams played brilliantly at the five-a-side tournament with one team getting to the semi-finals.

On Tuesday, we won our first League match of the match 4-2 against Dominicans in Dun Laoighre. One down, three to go!

And today, after many gruelling weeks of training with Olympic-winner Michael Carruth, three of our senior students sparred against pupils from other local schools in the National Stadium and, ahem, pulled no punches…

Well done to all of the boys and girls – we are so proud of you and your ‘fair play’ attitude. And a special thank you to Niamh O’Malley and Cillian ó Bhroinn for all of their training, organisation and support. Míle buíochas, a mhuinteorí.
