The first years boys were defeated 6-2 in the Leinster Shield final by Colaiste Choilm Swords yesterday.
In scorching conditions that reminded this scribe of Ireland at the '94 World Cup in USA, the lads played out a very exciting game. Although the better team won on the day, the scoreline flattered our opponents somewhat. In fact we took the lead and the game was very even until late on when Colaiste Choilm pulled away with some clinical finishing as we threw players forward looking to get back into the contest.
The lads can be extremely proud of their achievements this year and by the way they represented the school. A great team spirit cultivated this season will hopefully reap further rewards in the campaigns ahead.
