Joey’s Blues News….!!!!! Croke Park here we come…!!!


Well done to our school hurling team! Joey’s boys are heading to the final in Croke Park…..!!!! Last week our school hurling team won their semi final against St. Dominic’s from Tallaght on a score of 4 goals and 5 points to 4 points! It was a fantastic match and all the boys tried really hard and played very well. The boys were 3-1 to 0-1 up by half-time although our opposition were very unlucky with some of their attempts. In the second-half the boys continued to push forward but our opponents did make a valiant effort to try and reduce the margin. But it was a solid display by our defence and goalkeeper that allowed our midfield and attackers to see the game out with a comfortable lead. The game was played in Pearse Park in Crumlin.

Thank you Mr. Gillen for organising the buses to and from matches. A big thank you to Fran for keeping our school hurling, gaelic and soccer jerseys and gear in tip top condition so our boys always look their best!


Now we are Croke Park bound, we play Scoil Íosagáin, from Crumlin on Monaday the 20th of June at 1:30pm on the Hill 16 side of the pitch. It is a great opportunity and honour to play in Croke Park. It will be great fun and a tough test for the boys! All support is welcome on the day! IMG_4653

Our school will all be attending to give the boys the support they deserve!
