Soccer training is continuing.  We thank Ian and Sandra Sheehan for coaching.  Congratulations again to the U13 girls team who recently won the shield at Cahir Park AFC.

The boys teams did very well in Cahir yesterday in the South Tipperary Qualifier of the FAI Primary Schools 5-a-side Competition. They were extremely unlucky not get through to the next stage.

The girls teams will travel to Cahir for the same FAI Primary Schools 5-a-side Competition next Monday, March 13th.

Soccer Champs

The Girls took part in 5 a-side tournament in Cahir Park on Friday February 17th. They played very well throughout the day, improving with every game. Having played Newcastle, Gaelscoil Carrick and Ardfinnan in the group stages they qualified for latter stages of the competition and beat a very good Cahir side in the semi-final. They then played Burncourt in the final game on their way to victory.

Congratulations to the girls it is nothing more than they deserved, ending the week on a high after narrowly losing out to Clerihan in the debating competition.


Cahir Park AFC Primary Schools Under 13 Tournament opening round was held today the 16th January 2017. All games were played on Cahir Park AFC’s new all weather pitch. We entered two teams into the competition. All involved enjoyed the 7-aside tournament.


The pupils of 3rd and 4th took part in the FAI Futsal non-competitive blitz in Thurles. We were so fortunate that the weather was so mild and dry as it was held outdoors this year on an astro pitch. All involved had a great time.  All of the matches we were involved in were very exciting.

Congrats to all involved.


Third and Fourth Class recently got to the semi-finals of their soccer competition. Thank you to Ian for his training with the team.
