Hard luck to the u16s boys basketball team who competed in the All-Ireland Basketball Playoffs in Claregalway, Sunday the 13th. The team have worked tirelessly throughout the year with their coaches Ms. McKenna & Mr. O’ Callaghan. Well done to all squad members.
The first year soccer team will be in Munster Cup action this week as they face Colaiste on Chraoibhinn. This will be a great test for the team, who have been training hard this year.
The U17 squad will also be in action as they travel to Colaiste Muire, Cobh in what will be a tough test.
Best of luck to both teams.
