Hoist the Conleth’s Colours!

Fifth Year Russell ‘Jolly’ Bolger captained St. Conleth’s School Sail team over St. Andrew’s ‘1s’ in the Final of the All-Ireland Team Racing Championship! St. Michael’s and St. Andrew’s ‘2s’ were the other semi-finalists, but St. Conleth’s finished atop a field of the 19 best school sailing teams in the country. The sign of a great captain is one who learns from setbacks, and then pushes onwards, and Captain Russell did just that: after being nipped in the final last year, there was no stopping the Conleth’s crew this year. Well done, also, to all those before the mast: Helms Louis McGovern and Daniel O’Connor and Crews Saoirse Corry, Fergus O’Reilly and James O’Kelly. Now, for next year.. we hold what we have!
