Best wishes to Lily in 6th Class who has been selected for the Tipperary Primary Game Camogie team. Lily will be playing during half time in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship game between Tipperary and Clare in Semple Stadium this Sunday, April 24th. Bain sult as an ócáid Lily!
After nearly two and a half years of no competitions, it was great to finally get back out playing Camogie and Hurling before the Easter holidays. We're looking forward to more activity once we return for the final term of the school year next week!
Well done to Charlie, James and Iobhar on their recent success with Kilfeacle & District RFC in Under 14 East Munster Cup Final v Waterpark RFC. Congratulations boys!
Congratulations to Leah McGrath and the Republic of Ireland Under 15 soccer squad who defeated Scotland in the Bob Docherty Cup Final last Thursday morning in Newcastle University. Leah and the squad qualified for the final as they defeated England 4-1 on the first day of the tournament which meant that they collected their first piece of silverware, the John Read Trophy. They followed that up with a 4-3 win v Northern Ireland. That win against Northern Ireland was all the more special for Leah as she scored twice and was awarded Player of the Match following her performance. The Bob Docherty Cup Final v Scotland proved to be a tight affair as the Republic of Ireland won this game 1-0 which ensured that Leah and the girls would remain undefeated throughout the tournament.
Congratulations Leah, a wonderful achievement and a great start to your international career!
Our 3rd & 4th Class has a great day at The Abbey CBS hurling blitz just before the Easter holidays. Thanks very much to the staff and pupils there for their hospitality and for organising everything so well. As an added bonus, all the pupils met Conor Sweeney, the Tipperary Senior Gaelic Football captain and Abbey CBS teacher, who signed autographs for everyone and posed for lots of photographs. We had a fantastic time and we are looking forward to next year already!
Huge congratulations to Kate Flannery who represented the Ireland Under 18s in the Six Nations Festival held in Edinburgh over the Easter weekend. Hopefully, the start of long and successful international career for Kate! 😀🏉
We are very proud of Lewis who "chopped his bun" and shaved his head in aid of Bumbleance, The Children's National Ambulance Service recently in school. Lewis' family members joined us to watch the big event and his Aunt Sinéad took care of the hairdressing work. We are very proud of Lewis for undertaking this challenge. To date, he has raised over €1500 for this amazing charity.
Well done Lewis. We were delighted to witness your kind and brave deed. Maith thú!
