The Summer League finals were held today, with Patrick's and Giles' teams playing each other in the senior league and Aaron's and Diarmuid's teams playing in the junior league final. Well done to all! Our captains were very fair and inclusive to all their team mates and our supporters also did well encouraging both teams today!
A big go raibh míle do Liam also, a past pupil of St. Mary's, for reffing the league matches.
Our PE coach Graham also kindly organised a Gaelic football tournament in the Astro Turf for the boys this morning. A big 'Go Raibh Míle' do Graham!!
A great day was had by all in Breffni Park 3G on Monday. 5th and 6th class boys competed in a rounders tournament. We had some great home runs by boys in 6th, some great catches from the catcher behind the batter (A.K.A. Seán) and our fielders and also got a great ducking half way through the day from an unexpected hailstone shower. Well done to all involved - Keep up the catching and throwing (bowling) practice over the summer holidays!
The Junior team getting ready to run the course. They performed brilliantly and won gold thanks to a great team effort. There were pupils on this team from 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Well done!
Our Senior team was made up of these three boys from 6th class.
They ran a great race against formidable opposition and represented our school proudly. Maith sibh!
Enjoying lunch under a chestnut tree in lovely sunshine after all the hard work.
Ready for home.
Those smiles say it all! What a happy group of boys proudly holding their medals. For some of these boys it was their first time to take part in Cross Country. They did themselves and their school proud. I have a feeling they will be taking part in many more. Buaiteoirí Scoil Mhuire Abú!
We will keep you updated with our school events on a regular basis
