They had two great wins and a very tight loss. There is a similar competition coming up after mid term for 5th and 6th boys.


Well done to the boys G.A.A team who recently competed in a blitz at Lucan Sarsfields. They put in an amazing performance and placed second in the league , winning their final match against Lucan East ETNS.

Boys Gaelic Football

The boys continued their unbelievable run of results with a fantastic draw against Scoil Gáinne today. The boys fought back from 3 points down at half time to get a last minute point to draw the game scored by Steven. Every player should be proud of their performance in such horrible weather conditions. The team still have a chance of winning the league with their final  league game against Lucan East next week.
