U17 Soccer

Our U17 soccer squad had a great outing against Scariff Community College on Thursday with all the squad members getting game time ahead of their Munster 2nd round match.  Great teamwork, skill and goals were on display.


It was a mixed day for our basketball teams on Tuesday last.  The U16s fought brilliantly from 12 points down to win by 3 points.

The U19s lost out to a very strong Kilbeggan side and look forward to the next game.  Well done to all involved.
