Scoil Mhuire's Football Team had an absolutely fantastic campaign this year in the annual Cumann na mBunscol Competition. Winning all 3 of their group matches, the girls sailed into the quarter final stages of the competition. It was never going to be easy and Ballyboghill NS ensured that it was to be a very tough encounter. The 5th and 6th class panel put in a mammoth performance and showed real determination to just pip the opposition to the post in the dying minutes.

On we marched to the semi-final. Scoil Oilibhéir were the opponents this time around. A division 1 team who were very experienced in the competition. The game was neck and neck the whole way through, score for score, end to end. Played at a ferocious pace with a great standard of football it was always going to be heartbreaking for one team to come away without anything to show for a trojan effort. Unfortunately on the day it was our team that were left devastated.

Both Ms Lawlor and Ms O'Connor could not have been prouder of the girls for their efforts this year - showing great heart, passion and determination since early September. We look forward now to the Blitz' at the end of the year where we will be looking to claim all silverware that is on offer!
