As part of our Active School Week programme a soccer game took place between some of our teachers and some girls from 5th and 6th class. It was a fun Friday afternoon and a very sporting event if maybe a little more competitive than envisaged:-). Ms Ryan scored the only goal of the game and it ended 1-0. It was a tough battle and a very impressive display by the girls team from 5th and 6th class. . I think we can all agree that the teachers were lucky to win it and we're quite sure this will be put right next year. Thanks to everyone who took part, our wonderfully enthusiastic supporters, Sheila and the girls from Room 11 who were our photographers on the day. Well done also to Shaunagh, Hannah and Sophie who acted as referee and lineswomen.
Some of the action is captured in the video below!

Sam Maguire Visit and Active Flag Raising on PhotoPeach
A huge thank you to Jonny Cooper (Na Fianna) who took time out to visit us today with the Sam Maguire. It was a flying visit and he had lots of schools to fit in. He also raised our newly acquired Active Flag that we all worked very hard for last year and we were delighted he was able to do this. It was a really great day and there was great excitement in the hall on his arrival. Jonny met the Active Schools Commitee and the football team with their medals from Croke Park yesterday.A big well done and thank you to all the staff, pupils and ex -pupils who made this flag happen. A special word of thanks to those staff, students and ex students (Saran, Anna, Sarah Louise and Louise) who worked really hard on the committee all of last year. Good luck to all those who continue to keep our school active this year.
We wish our camogie team the very best of luck in the finals of the Cumann na mBunscol League on Tuesday June 9th. They played a tight semi-final last week and we're so happy that they won. St. Brigid's is very lucky to have reached the finals in Croke Park in both football and camogie this year. We wish them the very best of luck. Our panel of 20 is made up of girls from 5th and 6th class. A big thank you also to Na Fianna for the use of their club for training and always facilitating us for home games.
4th, 5th and 6th classes will travel to Croke Park to support our team. Get your banners ready everyone.
