The Presentation Camogie team had their first match of the league yesterday, students from 5th and 6th Class came together to represent the school.
The girls put on an excellent display of camogie against the Ursuline. The Ursuline were victorious on the day by just two points! We are super proud of our team and cannot wait to follow their journey over the next couple of months.
Well done to all involved, we look forward to welcoming Ballygunner NS next week to the Pres!
