For the first time, our senior footballers made their debut in the North Leinster League as a mean of preparation for the A Championship. It proved a worthwhile exercise, with wins against Scoil Dara (Kilcock) and St Pat’s (Navan) as well as a draw with Edenderry CS meaning we finished a respectable third in the group; this despite being decimated by injuries.
However, it is of course the championship that really matters and the lads proved this with a brilliant away victory against Patrician Secondary School, Newbridge on Friday 25th. Despite being three points down midway through the second half, the team rallied to outscore their opponents 1-6 to 0-2 for the remainder of the game, securing a deserved four point victory. St Mel’s of Longford are next up in a home draw which should attract a large and vociferous local support.
