Congratulations to the U14 County Champions

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Congratulations to Mr. Murrin and his great team who won the county final in such style. Anyone who has watched this squad training will know that their success was grounded in a meticulous physical preparation coupled with an excellent team mentality. This is a school side that plays as if it were parish team – well done!

U16′s V Rosses Community College

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Hard luck to Fr Shane’s men who lost out to RCC in an entertaining match on the school field. Rosses found the net almost immediately after a great team goal from our own U16′s and put and end to a spirited revival.  Ethan O’Donnells’ excellent finish came at the end of a flowing Glenties move that saw the team at it’s best. On the day Rosses just  managed to  finished the stronger to hold the boys from the Comp ’till the final whistle. (More Photos in the gallery)
