Lucky 13 for indoor tournament
Stars of the future
Thirteen teams from Bray, Greystones, Kilcoole and Kilmacanogue took part in an indoor Gaelic football tournament for third and fourth class boys in Loughlinstown Leisure Centre last Thursday January 24.
For many it was their first time playing for their school and they showed great pride in wearing their school jersey. Each team played four or five games and matches were keenly contested.
At the end of the day even though there were no medals or trophies the boys really enjoyed themselves and went back to their schools tired and exhausted.
Schools that took part were Kilcoole Primary School, St. Cronan's Bray, Scoil Chualann Bray, St. Peter's Bray, St. Fergal's Bray, Kilmacanogue National School, St Laurence's Greystones and St. Kevin's Greystones.
It was agreed at a meeting of Allianz Cumann na mBunscol, Cill Mhantáín that similar events should be held simultaneously in the north, south and west of the county if at all possible to ensure maximum participation by all.
This is an indoor football tournament for girls. The emphasis in this competition is on participation and sport for all - no age limit, seven-a-side.
This will take place on January 31 in Loughlinstown Leisure Centre at 11am. Contact Claire Frawley in Kilcoole Primary School on 01-2876597 if interested
