2012 WAS cer­tainly a busy and ex­cit­ing sport­ing year for Cross­bridge Na­tional School in South Wicklow.

They com­peted in the South Wicklow Cough­lan Cup for Gaelic foot­ball, com­plet­ing two days of blitzes held in Aughrim and Ti­na­hely.

In their first blitz Cross­bridge over­came school teams from Barn­dar­rig, Annacurra and Aughrim.

In their fi­nal blitz held in Ti­na­hely they over- came both Carnew and Aughrim to win the South Wicklow Cough­lan Cup.

Cap­tain on the day, Daniel Ging, thanked all those in­volved. Cross­bridge also fielded a team in the All County in­door hurl­ing league.

They suc­cess­fully com­pleted two days of in­door hurl­ing win­ning all their matches to come out on top and win out the hurl­ing league. Cap­tain for the hurl­ing team was David Byrne.

Prin­ci­pal of Cross­bridge, Marie Murphy, com­pli­mented all the boys and girls of the win­ning teams for their hard work on and off the pitch and also paid trib­ute to Ti­na­hely Ju­ve­nile GAA club for all the coach­ing be­ing given to the school .

All the young boys and girls were pre­sented with their medals dur­ing their Christ­mas play by schools coach­ing co-or­di­na­tor Martin Ging, who paid trib­ute to the boys and girls and also to the three schools Cross­bridge, Kil­com­mon and Ti­na­hely for their pro­mo­tion of Gaelic Games within the com­mu­nity.

Well done to all.
