Following the completion of the eight rounds, the Thomastown boys were the overall winners and ensured that the school would win the title for the first time ever. Huge congratulations to the boys on another great achievement!

The Under 11 Football team played Ballina NS from North Tipperary in the County Final on November 17th in Cashel. After a fantastic team performance, the boys were denied victory with the last kick of the game when the ball unfortunately hit the crossbar and the final whistle blew. Ballina NS were victorious by one point and the final score read as Ballina NS 2-02 Thomastown NS 0-07. Well done boys, you can be proud of your efforts. Beidh lá eile againn!
