We’ll be back…

Pictured above, with Principal, Mr Dónal ÓhÓbáin,  are the Boys’ Senior and Junior footballers and their teachers, with the O’Byrne Cup, recently won again  by the Meath team, containing some Saint Mary’s past-pupils!

(The Bord na Móna O’Byrne Cup is a Gaelic football competition organised by the Leinster GAA. The competition is named after Matt O’Byrne, a former Wicklow GAA club officer. The participants are the eleven county teams which field a football team… Kilkenny do not field a football team.)

We were looking forward to our Senior Boys competing in the final against St Colmcille’s BNS,  Kells on Saturday!!!

The road to the final…

On the 9 of June 2018 we played Kells in the Cuman Na mBunscol final at 2 o clock. This is how we got there. Our first match was against Dunboyne in Donboyne who we beat well with great performances by Danann Donnelly and Daniel Holmes. Our second match was against Whitecross who were missing a few players  so we beat them by 5 goals thanks to Adam Power and Cian Dowling. Our third match was against Canistown and solid performances from Conor McNally and Ben Cox saw us the win.

In the quarter final against Kildalkey we were down at half time but with Captain Eoin Kelly and leading scorer Michael O’Sullivan coming off the bench we won the game. In the semi final we faced Whitecross again. Great performances from the fourth class Ross Wilson and Dara Maher we were in front at half time. Unfortunately we went 2 points down with ten minutes to go. Thankfully Niall Daly scored an unstoppable goal with eight minutes to go. Whitecross went on the attack but didn’t break through the defence of Oisin Daly, Daniel Holmes, Andrew Skelton, Leon Holmes and Troy Mahon until the very last minute but a great save by Jodev Puchon got us the win.

We were really looking forward to the final and we would like to thank Mr Giblin, Mr Cawley , Mr O Connor and Mr Halpin.

By Oisin Daly

After a superb display of quality football from both teams in sweltering conditions, Kells emerged the winners after rallying in the last ten minutes of the game.

We in Saint Mary’s are immensely proud of you all, boys and we thank you and your mentors, Mr Cawley, MrGiblin and Mr O’Connor for all your dedication and hard work over recent months!
