On the 9th of September 40 boys from 5th and 6th were picked to play in a blitz organised by Round Tower’s GAA club against different schools in the area. Mr. Doherty and Mr. Fitzgerald took 20 boys each. Group 1 was managed by MR. Fitzgerald and group 2 was managed by Mr. Doherty.
Group 1’s first match was against G.S. Cluain Dolcain. It was a close match but St. Joseph’s kept going and finished strong. Group 2’s first match was against Sruleen. It was a very good match but Joeys came out on top.
Group 1’s second match against G.S. na Camoige. It was a great match but St. Joseph’s came out on top once again. Group 2’s second match was against Neilstown. It was so close that it ended in a draw.
Group 1 played their final match against Clonburris. It was by far their toughest game. With two minutes to go Joeys were two points down. We had the ball in the middle of the field doing some good passing then the break was on. St. Joseph’s were running at the Clonburris defence and boom! The ball was in the back of the net. St. Joseph’s had won. Unfortunately group 2 were not as successful as they lost their last game.
Thanks to Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. Doherty for bringing us to the Community centre to play.
