Last Friday evening There was a 5k organised by the Minor Boards of Clg Naomh Columba and Cill Chartha to raise money and show our support for our Colaiste na Carraige lads who were in action on Saturday in Mullingar in the All Ireland Semi Final, A huge thank you to everybody that donated Money, Ran, Walked & Rolled the tough course, It was a joy to do on such a glorious evening and great to see such a good turn out of young and old from both parishes.
Unfortunately the Colaiste na Carraige lads bid for All Ireland Glory ended on Saturday evening in the Battle of Mullingar, In windy playing conditions our lads battled hard all the way into Injury time and lost by one point in the end. A huge Crowd from the area attended the game and thank you all for doing so. To finish the school season as County champions, Ulster Champions & one of the Top four schools teams Ireland is a remarkable achievement for such a small school, you are all a credit to your School, teachers, and Families who are all very proud of your achievements.
