Football Tournament
“On the 17th of June, our school’s football team went down to Castleknock Educate Together N.S. for a football tournament.  We played four matches against St Brigid’s, Scoil Thomáis and Educate Together.  We played against Scoil Thomáis in our first match and scored a last minute goal by Ruarí Paton. In the next game, David Onitiu scored the first goal then we went 2-1 down. Once again there was a very dramatic ending with two goals in the last minute.  Our next match was against Educate Together and we won 4-2 with two from Ruarí Paton, one from David Onitiu and one from Ryan Cassidy. We had got to the final against Scoil Thomáis and we beat them with a very comfortable 4-0 win. We thank everyone on both A and B teams for participating. Thank you also to Derek Kilkenny for helping out on the day” Ruarí and Stephen – 6th Class
