Undaunted by early morning starts, our fifth and sixth class pupils hit the tarmac running for our 8 am football coaching with Mr Arthur, Mr Culligan, Mr Lynch and Mr Duffy. Their first match for the coveted Cooney cup went well for our team as they emerged the winners against a valiant Stamullen team on Friday 19th January.
Meanwhile, Colmcille's coach, Níall Kane is taking on two after school sessions with our second and fourth classes. These sessions will run over six weeks, and already are proving very popular with the boys. The focus is on helping the boys acquire the basic skills of the game along with having lots of fun and already it has encouraged some boys to look to our local club for some more football fun.
The sessions run from 3:20-4:00 pm Mondays(Second Class) and Tuesdays(Fourth Class). Please note that the wearing of a gum shield is essential for all gaelic football training and matches.
