Our camogie team and their coaches met with the Minister of State for Sport and Physical Education Thomas Byrne who visited Walsh Park on Friday 2nd June. Minister Byrne was accompanied by our local Minister Mary Butler amongst others and spoke very encouragingly to the girls about the importance of their participation in sport. Our girls were the first to sit in the new seats in the newly renovated stand and even got to have a few pucs on the playing field.
The 4th, 5th and 6th Class girls who took part in after school athletics training with Ms. O’Connor, Ms. Nugent and Mrs. Morgan were visited by Olympic athlete Phil Healy. Ms O’Connor is a training partner of Phil’s so she organised for Phil to come and visit the girls. Phil spoke to the girls about her journey as an athlete, her training, her nutrition, and her journey to the Olympic games. Phil finished her visit by doing relay races with the girls and signing some autographs on Irish flags. The girls loved meeting an Olympic athlete and learned so much about the sport. Thank you Phil!
The Presentation camogie team, which is made up of 4th, 5th and 6th Class girls, have gotten their 2023 season underway!
The first game saw our team come up against a strong and physical team from St Ursula’s, the girls fought for every ball and played with fierce determination, coming back from being twelve points down at half time, to being beaten by just one goal at the final whistle. An excellent come back from the girls, who were so unlucky on the day.
Friday saw our team line out against Holy Cross in Cleaboy. They put on a super performance and really worked together as a team. They won on a final score of 9-4 to 1-3. It was a great team effort and all 21 girls played a part on the day, while also having great fun!
A special thank you goes to our 5th and 6th class supporters! We loved your posters and chants on the side-lines
Huge congratulations to everyone on the team. We are so so proud of you. Pres Abú!
