On Wednesday 14th June, boys and girls from the Senior Gaelic football teams took part in a blitz in O’Tooles GAA club, with 3 other teams from the area: Priorswood, Darndale and Ayrfield. There was a boys and a girls competition and we entered teams in each. In hot and humid conditions, the boys and girls played their hearts out. While the boys team didn’t progress, the girls team reached the final based on their performances in the group stages. They played absolutely out of their skin: tackling hard, supporting each other, taking some lovely scores, and never giving up. When the referee blew the full time whistle, St Nicholas of Myra had come out on top! There were great scenes of celebration on the pitch afterwards, and a very deserving captain, Grace, collected the Breda Tracey cup on behalf of all the team. Congratulations to all of the girls on the team – you did us proud! A huge thanks must also go to Ms McNamara for all her hard work in training this group since January.
