Leinster Schools Junior Golf Champions, Paul Murphy, Dylan Farrell, Ronan Whelan and Michael Ryan with Teacher/Coach Mr Teague.
While the school has, over the years lifted many trophies in hurling, football, showjumping, athletics, swimming and many other sports, the Junior Golf team last week brought the first Leinster Golf title to the school with a comprehensive victory against the best in Leinster at Kileen Castle. Playing outstanding golf, these very talented young golfers, pictured above, drew right away from the opposition to finish 5 strokes clear. Their coach Mr Teague was justifiably proud of the boys’ efforts and is already planning a tilt at the All Ireland title which will be played on the Balmoral course in Antrim early next year. Well done to them and best wishes.
Another notable sporting achievement was that of Jack Breen Barron who won a silver medals at the European Continuous Sparring international held recently in Dublin. Already an Irish champion in Points SparringJack proved that he is in the very top league with his performances in this competition. He is currently a high brown belt holder and hopes to one day make the black belt grade.
The 6th year parent/teacher meetings took place on Wednesday evening in the sports hall and we are very thankful to all thosae parents who came along and to the prefects and Mr Younger who arranged the seating, signage, etc. The 3rd year P/T meetings will take place on Thursday next, December 13th.
The U-14 and U-16 Fooballers both recently qualified for the South Leinster finals with wins over St Peters College. While the U-16s had some margin of comfort in victory, the U-14 game went down to the wire with extra time needed and only a brace of very late goals swinging the result the ‘Counsel’s’ way. Best of luck to both teams in their finals.
The class of 1992 are holding a reunion in Spider’s bar, South Street on the night of December 27th at 9pm and it is hoped that any members of that particular group who can make it will be there for what should be an interesting and memorable occasion.
