Our Girls’ 7-a-side Gaelic Football team played in the Meath finals last week. After winning their first match to Whitecross they lost out narrowly to Wilkinstown after leading for most of the match. We are exceptionally proud of their achievements this year. They can now concentrate on the Cumann na mBunscol competition after Easter.

Easter Egg Hunt/’65 Roses’
We are having our usual Easter Egg Hunt on Friday but with a difference! Each team will have to find ’65 Roses’ (laminated) around the school. We will have eight teams and hopefully each team will work together to find the ’65 Roses’ There may be a few eggs as prizes!!!
Tomorrow is the last of the four computer classes with Colin. We thank Colm for all his great work during these lessons.
