We've only gone and done it!!!
Yesterday, in cold conditions, the first year soccer lads recorded yet another victory, on this occasion, it was the semi final of the Leinster first year competition. We beat Kilcoole of Wicklow 3-0. This latest triumph now puts us into a final in the next few weeks against a very tough opponent in the shape of Colaiste na hInse hailing from Swords, who recorded a comprehensive 5-1 victory in their respective semi final.
This is a huge deal!! This is the final of the Leinster!! We have had a long line of success on the sporting field in this school and this achievement, even though we haven't won anything yet, without doubt, adds to our impressive sporting tradition and history.
The lads, attitude, skill and behavior was impeccable,as always, with this particular team. The manager of their team made that point in a very complementary speech to us after the match had ended. We won't single players out as we believe all the lads on the panel have contributed significantly in this march to the final.
It's been a wonderful journey with a great bunch of lads and hopefully, fingers and toes crossed etc, the best is yet to come.
Well done to the frist year Soccer team and the dream team management duo of Mr. O Brien and Mr. Tunney.
