Boys Gaelic Football Season Underway

Well done to our boys who began their Cumann na mBunscol season today in a tightly-contested match against Lucan East Educate Together. The boys from 4th, 5th and 6th only started training last week but impressed today with their skills and tenacity.

Joint “men of the match” were Jamie and Jack, the captain, both from 6th Class. Dominic’s scored 4-6 with a magnificent long range goal from Seán (6th) the highlight. 

Forwards Scott (6th), Jake (5th) and Conor (6th) gave the away defence a lot to worry about. Cain (6th) impressed in midfield and at full back, as did his fifth class team-mate Calum. Paul (6th) showed his fitness and strength in the half back line along with the tenacious Eoin (6th). Goalkeeper Ben (5th) displayed great shot stopping and kicking before being replaced by Shane (4th), who had a great debut. Dionese and Wiktor (both 6th) impressed off the bench, as did Alex (5th), Zach (4th) and Lucas (4th). 

The game was played in a great, competitive and fair spirit by both teams. Well done to all!

Our boys team this year is coached by Mr Looney and Mr Donnellan. Our girls team, coached by Ms Hogan and Mr Fagan, begin their season tomorrow.
