Date: May 21, 2013 Author: schooladmin Categories: News

WELL DONE, LADS 21/5/13

Today our school was an even busier hive of activity as final preparations got under way for the Cumann na mBunscol hurling final. This was our first time back in the final after 15 years. Senior classes made headbands and wristbands for the everyone in the school to wear to the match in Cusack Park . The bunting was tweaked, flags painted, encouraging posters displayed, banners prepared and support chants rehearsed. The school jerseys were laid out with care and hurls and sliotars closely checked. The water bottles were filled, the first aid kit restocked and the team speech delivered. Then it was off to Cusack Park where a fantastic crowd of supporters, staff, parents and fellow pupils, cheered loyally for our team. Sadly, despite leading for most of the game, victory was not ours today and the final score was 2-06 to 2-09. It was a great game played with grit, guts and heart and we at St Mary’s are very proud of our valiant boys, Mr Scally (trainer) and Mr O Mairtin (mentor). Thanks for a truly memorable day.
