Cumann na mBunscoil:

Pride of place this week goes to Carrick NS, Curraghboy and Ballybay Central NS who won their respective schools finals against Tibohine NS and St Josephs NS Boyle respectively . It was particularly special for Curraghboy NS team who made history by winning a first ever county title for the school. This was also the school's first appearance in a county final for 16 years. Their opponents Tibohine put up a brave effort throughout in this two teacher 7-a-side Two Teacher final but Curraghboy’s superior firepower ensured they finished comprehensive winners in the end. Curraghboy NS squad: Luke Powell, Aaron Dolan, Adam Samuels, Diarmuid Glynn-McLoughlin, Ruaidhrí Fallon, Cormac Canny, Bobby Nugent, Michael and Daniel Butler (joint captains), Áine Downey, Niamh Kenny, Sarah Reid, Oisín McCauley, Fionn McDonnell, Leah Nestor-Kane. In the Large Schools Final against Boyle, Ballybay dominated from the word go and ran out easy winners to retain their county title which they captured last year after a four year absence. (See match reports elsewhere). Ballybay NS squad: Evan Gallagher, Faoláin Kennedy, Liam Egan, Luke Griselain, Jack Martin, Shane Keenan, Ciarán Quinn, Ben O’Carroll, Robbie Dolan (captain), Shane Kelly, Adam Lennon, Karl Colgan, Ben Costello, Leo Fennell, Adam Flanagan, Cian Lawless, Eoin McGrath, Luke Martin, Robert Muldoon, Gavin Daly, Rhys Mannion, Brian Monaghan, Luke Murphy, Brian Nestor, Luke O’Rourke, Ultan O’Rourke. A special thanks to Curraghboy NS principal, Ollie Connaughton; Ballybay teachers Sandra Kelly and Tina O’Hara, and Kieran Kilkenny for all their work in ensuring this fabulous week for both schools.
