And with this are the outstanding successes that the U-14 A and U-16 A teams have made. The U-14 A’s reached the Dublin finals, while the U-16 A’s came through to both the Dublin and Leinster Finals and won. Other teams did not fare as well, but they didn’t disappoint. All put in their utmost effort, and each of them made the club proud. [read more]

Our annual sports day took place on Friday the 4th of May on the school rugby pitches. Whilst the weather was not as sunny as it usually is for annual sports day, the rain did hold off.
The day was a huge success with the boys competing in various events including: Broad jump, basketball throw, penalty shootout, long puck, 100 metres, 1500 metres. The day was as usual coordinated by Mr Dick Ryan, and as usual he produced a very enjoyable day for all.
