• This week we celebrated “Seachtain na Gaeilge. Bhí a lán eachtraí ar siúl i rith na seachtaine. Lots  of fun activities were organised and there was plenty of “ceol agus craic”. Many students took part in the bake off and Rithika Gill was deemed the winner. Maith thú Rithika.

• On Thursday, 24 TY students assisted our local Balbriggan Tidy Towns committee and spent their day preparing some areas at the train station for flower planting as well as picking up the litter throughout the town. The volunteers were full of energy and enthusiasm and really made a difference to our local area. Well done girls and watch this website for more initiatives from the teams in the coming weeks.

• It was a very busy week for our hockey teams. Four of our hockey teams played in the North Side league this Wednesday in Trinity sports grounds in torrential conditions. Our Minor Bs and Senior As won gold and the Senior Bs and First year team won silver medals. It was a fantastic achievement for all teams to get into the final, long may this success continue.

The senior A team played in the Leinster final on Thursday in Three Rock Rovers. It was a thrilling encounter against Sutton Park. The girls went 2-0 down in the first half but came back in the second half with 5 minutes to go to equalise with two magical goals. It was a thrilling spectacle and shows the girls appetite to win. 2-2 was the final score. The game went to penalties and yet another 2-2 draw.  Nothing was separating the sides and the game continued to sudden death penalties. 1-1 in the first round, the game finished with 1-0 in the last sudden death with our goal crossing the line a millisecond too late. Congratulations to our entire Senior A hockey panel, all 20 players. It was a fantastic achievement to get to a Leinster final as it was 14 years ago since the school has progressed to this stage. All the coaches are extremely proud of the girls and couldn't have asked for more of them throughout the year. We will now compete in Leinster 1A next year, a promotion we all welcome and will look forward to the challenge.
