St. Brigid's Gaelic Football Team Reach Finals in Croke Park.
St. Brigid’s played their Cumann na mbunscoil final against Holy Family Swords on Tuesday 5th November. It was a great day out for the girls from 2nd – 6th. St.Brigid’s played extremely well but unfortunately it was not to be our day. They had a great start and were very unlucky in the end to lose. We are all extremely proud of the girls for not giving up and playing their hearts out. See Sports and Activities tab for further information.
We have had tremendous support from the parents of the team all the way through the league and we appreciate this greatly. We would also like to say a big thank you to Keith Dixon (https://keithdixonphotography.squarespace.com) for coming along and taking some wonderful shots of the match for us. These are something to treasure and we are very grateful. Here are some pictures from the day including Keith’s great action shots.
And of course a VERY special thank you to Ms. Devlin and Ms. Ryan who have not only trained the girls but have also been a constant source of guidance and encouragement for them all the way through.
