Stars of Summer!17 August 2023
While the rest of us were catching rays or dodging raindrops this summer, some of our more students were a bit more active and ambitious: in fact, representing their country in sporting competition! Three of our incoming Fifth Years and one TY were flying the Irish flag as they took the field (or track). Our very own Greta Lawless (5th Yr.) was chosen by the Olympic Federation of Ireland to compete on her bicycle in the Summer European Youth Olympic Festival. The EYOF is the largest European multi-sport event for young athletes between the ages of 14 and 17. TY Diego O’Reilly & Róisín Ridge (5th Yr.) were selected to represent Ireland at the Atlantic Youth Cup! Diego’s U-18 boys won a Bronze Medal and Róisín’s U18 mixed team came 4th, narrowly beaten by France. Club and families and school are very proud of this huge achievement! And our very own Lucy McGoldrick (5th Yr.) took up the pads and stick, playing No. 1 goalkeeper for Ireland ‘s Women’s Hockey U16s in the Eight Nation european tournament. And we just managed to cut the grass once a week!
