Partnering Children on their Developmental Journey

Cumann na mBunscol


Our boys and girls contested the Laois Cumann na mBunscol finals before on Thursday Oct 22nd in O Moore Park. Our boys met the Heath N.S. in their final and they staged a magnificent  fight back in the second against an excellent Heath side before eventually losing a thrilling game by 3-12 to 4-5.

Our girls were defeated 2-5 t0 1-2 in their final by Ballylinan. The girls played bravely to the end despite the difficult playing conditions.

Conor O Farrell and Ellen Connolly ( 6th class ) were awarded the most valuable player trophies in their respective finals… well done !

Afterwards the teams and loyal supporters were treated to Supermacs by the Parents association.

Even though both teams were defeated the children enjoyed the whole experience of participating in  the competitions and were very proud to be one of the few schools with both boys and girls teams reaching the final stage.
