The Sligo Champion - - SPORT -

ST Josephs School Bal­ly­tiv­nan had their fi­nal prepa­ra­tion on last Wed­nes­day in the Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence Scar­den ahead of the Martin Don­nelly GAA “Foot­ball for ALL” In­ter­provin­cial Fi­nals in Croke Park on Tues­day, 26th Septem­ber.

There are two teams from Con­nacht Re­gion Schools (boys and girls) play­ing in the hal­lowed turf of Croke Park and they have had two com­bined coach­ing ses­sions in COE Scar­den un­der ex­cel­lent coaches Liam Og Gormley, Padraig Clancy, Brian Maguire and Gerry Tuohy from Sligo and Eoin Sweeney, Martin Costello Billy Mc Ni­cholas from Mayo. The joy and smiles on the players’ faces as they prac­ticed and played gaelic foot­ball was a joy to be­hold, and they re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated mix­ing with other players from dif­fer­ent coun­ties. St Josephs School Bal­ly­tiv­nan and prin­ci­pal Carmel Wynne are to be com­mended as they are on their sec­ond jour­ney to Croke Park, as they rep­re­sented Con­nacht last year. The teach­ers, par­ents, and vol­un­teer coaches need to be com­pli­mented and lauded on pre­par­ing for and hav­ing their day in Croke Park. Tim Hynes, Chair­man of the Sligo GAA In­clu­sion Games for All wished them the best of luck in Croke Park today as they play for Con­nacht in the sec­ond Martin Don­nelly GAA “Foot­ball for ALL” In­ter­provin­cial Fi­nals.
