The Scoil Ursula hurling amigos team qualified for the county finals recently. The competition, which tests the hurling skills of teams of four, was held in Summerhill College and three teams finished in first place on 26 points; Scoil Ursula, Rosses Point and Gaelscoil Cnoc na Ré. Well done to Eoghan, Fintan, Eli & Connor and best of luck in the final next week.
THe new set of girls' jerseys won by our all-conquering GAAmigos team arrived during the week. The 4 girls, Roisín, Emma, Eden & Dervla received a jersey each to keep as a memento of their success and the school also got a full set for the girls' squad to use for many years to come. Well done girls!!
There was heartbreak in Markievicz Park on Saturday as our Girls' and Boys’ Football Teams lost out in their respective finals to defending champions, Scoil Naomh Molaise, Grange. The margin of defeat in both matches was a mere two points but both teams gave it their absolute all and can be very proud of what they achieved on the sports fields this year. Scoil Ursula got to three finals including the one that yielded our first ever hurling title. Well done to our players for a fabulous year's sport and to our coaches Ms Munnelly & Mrs Robinson who had the teams in great shape for finals day. We also thank our coach, Ross Donovan who worked with our senior pupils during the year and the IT coaches who worked with our future stars. Huge thanks to all our parents and supporters who came along on Saturday to cheer the teams on!! Hopefully we can build on this year’s campaign to go one better next year!!
There was some consolation, however, for the 6th Class players who played their last games for Scoil Ursula on Saturday. The Girls' GAAmigos team not only won a set of jerseys for the school, but also a trip for their classmates to the Connacht Centre of Excellence on Monday where they had a great day of activities courtesy of the Sligo Primary Schools Coaching Scheme. Congratulations also to girls' captain Eden, who came third in the place kicking competition and will also represent the school during the half time match at the eagerly awaited Connacht Championship match between Sligo and Roscommon in Markievicz Park on Saturday evening.
