|Scoil Ursula N.S.||
Congratulations to Olwyn Harrison Quinlan in Third Class who was highly commended for her entry in the Fleadh Art Competition held recently. The theme of the competition was Sligo and the Fleadh. Olwyn received her prize and certificate on Tuesday afternoon in the Sligo Education Centre. Well Done, Olwyn!
There was heartbreak in Markievicz Park on Saturday as our Girls' Football Team lost out in a pulsating final to Scoil Naomh Molaise by just one point. It was a fantastic display by both teams who served up a most entertaining end-to-end game of football which had the supporters from both schools enthralled to the final whistle. Scoil Ursula started slowly in the first half and fell behind their opponents by a few points by half time. However, the found their rhythm early in the second half and some excellent combined play saw them levelling the match with minutes to go. Unfortunately, they weren't able to find that elusive score to get their noses in front and the Grange team came back strongly at the finish and got the winning point at the death.
Well done to our girls for a fabulous year's football and to our coaches Ms Caffrey & Ms Munnelly who had the team in great shape for the final.
Well done to our Girls' and Boys' teams, who both started with a 100% record over their first two fixtures in this year's competition. Both teams had good wins over Ransboro NS and Carraroe NS last week. They now need only one more win to make certain of qualification to the semi-finals. Next up is Ballymote NS on this coming Thursday in Kent Park at 12:00. We wish all concerned well and thank our coaches Ms Caffrey, Ms Munnelly, Ms Burke, Ms Caffrey and a special thank you to Ms Clarke, who leaves us this week.
3rd and 4th classes had a very enjoyable day in St. Mary's GAA grounds playing quick games of Gaelic Football and Hurling. It was very exciting and great to see all the children getting a go and a taste of these brilliant Irish sports!
Sligo Borough Council held their last meeting yesterday, 1st May. Entertainment was laid on by Feis Shligigh and Feis Cheoil after the meeting. Some recent Feis Shligigh medal winners from Scoil Ursula were among those entertaining. Pawel, Katie and Elina recited their dánta as Gaeilge. They did the school proud! Well done!

Congratulations to our hurlers who have qualified for the Cumann na mBunscoil Semi-Finals for the first time ever. It took a huge comeback with three scores in the last 5 minutes against the Gaelscoil to force the game into extra time and in a tense nail-biting finish Scoil Ursula squeezed out a one-point victory. Well done to our whole panel who have trained very hard this year to improve hurling in the school.
Some of the Scoil Ursula pupils who took part in Feis Shligigh recently. Well done to all involved!
