Today we had the pleasure of honouring the winning St Brigid’s and Ballinamore SOH Ladies teams in our school.
Firstly congrats to St Brigid’s Ladies on winning the Leitrim Junior Championship title and the Division 2 League in 2023 and competing so well in Connacht only to narrowly lose out in the Connacht final recently. Well done all. Pictured are Dearbla Gunn and Jane Prior from the St Brigid’s team.
We also had a visit from members of the victorious Ballinamore SOH Ladies team who won the Leitrim Intermediate Championship recently and followed this up with an outstanding victory in the Connacht final last weekend in a hard fought 1 point win over Eoghan Rua, Sligo. The past pupils who visited the school were Leighanne Gallagher, Michelle Fanning, Leigh Anne Flynn, Abbi Sweeney, Grainne Prior and Laoise Moran. They were joined by our current pupils Lucy Murphy and Ella Van Der Laan who are also on the team.
Our Principal, Mr Mc Caffrey and Mr Mullen ( Ladies football Coordinator) welcomed and congratulated both teams on their tremendous achievements this year. This special assembly took place in the school GP area with all the girls who participate in Ladies football in the school in attendance along with Deputy Principal, Mr Cunnane and Ladies school team managers, Ms. Stenson and Mr. Kane.
This was a joyful occasion and it was great to catch up with our past and current pupils who are exemplary role models to the school and wider community.
Finally best wishes to Ballinamore SOH Senior Ladies in the upcoming All Ireland Intermediate semi final in a few weeks, to be played at at home in Leitrim. Best wishes also to Ballinamore SOH in the Minor final Vs St Joseph’s this Sunday coming.
