Third & Fourth Hurling Blitz in John the Baptist C.S.
Members of our third & fourth classes represented the school in a hurling blitz in John the Baptist C.S. in Hospital recently.
The INTO Mini Sevens team represented the South in UL where they narrowly lost out to Doon CBS and Milford NS and picked up a convincing win against Courtenay NS. Thanks to the great performance, Adam Boyle will get to be a referee in a mini-sevens game in Croke Park at half time during the All Ireland hurling semi-final in August.
Gráinne Kennedy of St. Brigid’s Ladies Football Club and Conor O’Grady of Hospital/Herbertstown GAA Club visited the school to talk about football. Both Conor and Gráinne have represented Limerick at minor level in Gaelic Football and they gave a great talk to the children about the sport. As past pupils of the school, the current crop of children were very interested to hear what they had to say.
Thanks to Conor & Gráinne for taking the time to visit us and support sport & Gaelic Games in the school.
All Ireland Intermediate Handball Champion Páidí Quish visited the school in December to talk to the children about Handball. Páidí gave an excellent talk on the rules of the game and how the game has helped him see more of the world as it is played internationally. Páidí is a member of the Handball club in Hospital and some of our pupils are now planning to join!
Thanks to Páidí for taking the time to visit us.
