Boxing TY’s

TY students were delighted to be training in the National Boxing Stadium for four weeks during the month of November, followed by boxing in a showcase against other schools.

The students were Dean Robertson, Dara Phelan, Aaron Nnadi, Christin Shelock, Jake Millar and their teacher Mr. C Hanratty. They all said it was a great experience to be in the stadium training and that they felt like professionals.

Well done to all involved.




The Victory Shield

The F.A.I spotted two of St. Aidan’s finest and most talented footballers Gavin O'Brien and Ronan Kilkenny both from TY. They were recruited on to the Irish U-16's Irish football team. They are stars of the future in football, so keep a keen eye on them.

“We went down to Tralee in Kerry for the tournament called 'The Victory Shield'. We were part of an all man squad to take on Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland.

We arrived down in Kerry on Friday and began training which continued on Saturday and Sunday. This was our preparation for our first game against Northern Ireland.

We both started and I was captain. We lost 3-1. We were all disappointed as we set out to win every game and win the tournament, but this made it a bit harder.

Our next game was against Wales, we did not get to start this time or play, but we won 4-0, so we were happy.

The final game was against Scotland. We needed to win it and hope that Northern Ireland wouldn't win. I started the game and captained the side. Sadly, we drew 0-0. I felt we thoroughly deserved to win after a fantastic team performance. In the end, we got 4 points out of a possible 9. Northern Ireland won the tournament. It was a great educational experience for both of us.”

Rugby Trophies on Tour

Last year Leinster rugby won both the PRO 14 and the Champions Cup. The students were delighted to have a visit from the Rugby Trophies as they were touring the schools in early October. The students were introduced to the trophies and were afforded an opportunity to take photos with them, as you can imagine there was a great rush to get in the photos.

Golfers on the Green

Our U-16 golfers came close to qualifying for the Leinster finals just missing out narrowly in Beaverstown Golf Club on October 16th.  The team of Evan Byrne, Gavin McEvoy, and Eoin Duffy performed admirably on the day in tough conditions and this experience will no doubt stand to them for next year.  Special thanks to Alex Tyrrell for helping out on the day.
