Division One Winners 2011/12

Well done to the Scoil Mhuire team who defeated St. Joseph's BNS Carrickmacross to win the Frank McGinn Cup Division One Football Final on Saturday 22nd October.

The boys played extremely well in terrible conditions. Having lost the toss they were forced to play against the wind for the first quarter, however at the break the teams were level with a goal and a point apiece. In the second quarter Scoil Mhuire used the wind to great advantage, scoring two magnificent goals and not conceding any scores. The third and fourth quarters were closely contested.

Goalkeeper, defence, midfield and forwards worked hard to retain possession and maintain momentum.

All in all it was a terrific team performance, many supporters commented on the way the boys played for each other.

Their passing game, support play, hard work and determination were  key to their success. 

Our captain accepted the cup and thanked Mr. Mac Cinna and Ms Casey for their coaching.

A special thanks to the huge number of parents, pupils, pastpupils and teachers who braved the wind and rain to cheer on the boys.
