Cumann na mBunscol

We had huge excitement this week as several local schools competed in the Cumann na mBunscol finals in Croke Park. It was a great opportunity for our players who all put on a fine display of camogie and hurling, proudly representing their schools and club.  

Congratulations to the girls and boys in Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada who both one their finals. This was the cherry on top for the GSER who also won their football final before Christmas. Pictured below both teams with their medals! 


Both the boys and girls in Scoil Áine Naofa also competed in CMNB finals in Croke Park. Congratulations to the girls who came out on top in their match but unfortunately, it was not to be for the lads who missed out, hard luck lads. Congratulations to our two adult players Sinead O’Keefe and Anna Breen who managed the teams. See team pictures below. 



Hard luck to Gaelscoil Naomh Padraig who were defeated in their final and best of luck to the team going forward. Not pictured.
