SCHOOL AC­TIV­I­TIES

Gaelic Foot­ball Se­nior - South Le­in­ster Cham­pi­ons 2010 The se­nior foot­ballers had a great run in the South Le­in­ster cup with wins over Bless­ing­ton (3:7 to 0:6) and Avon­dale CC 2:4 to 1:3 to set up a semi-fi­nal clash with Fer­ry­bank CC which they won by 1:14 to 1:5. In the fi­nal, the team came up against strong op­po­si­tion in Bun­clody CS but played su­perbly to win out by 0:11 to 1 : 5 and lift the South Le­in­ster ti­tle. This win put the team into the Le­in­ster semi-fi­nals where they played the win­ners of the North Le­in­ster sec­tion. Un­for­tu­nately, O'Fiaidh Col­lege, Drogheda proved too strong on the day and the team lost by five points.

SE­NIOR RUGBY

The se­nior rugby team have had a great sea­son with huge credit due to the boys them­selves for their com­mit­ment to train­ing and to the great as­sis­tance from the Le­in­ster Branch in con­junc­tion with Grey­stones Rugby Club. The team plays in the De­vel­op­ment Cup and has now qual­i­fied for the semi-fi­nals of this competition and we wish them the best of luck in that match, the date of which has yet to be de­cided.

CHESS

The school chess team re­tained the shield in the an­nual match against Pres Bray. The se­nior team of Iain Collins, Lu­cas Now­icki, Carl Reynolds, Owen McNaughton and Aaron Vaughn won two of their five matches while the ju­nior team of Rory El­lard, Colm Byrne, Evan Mooney, Ryan Smith, Derek Kelly and Ser­gio Si­n­a­goga won four of their matches and drew two of their matches to give the school an im­pres­sive 7 - 3 over­all win.
