2022 started off with an unsure start for our Gaelic Games in County Antrim but thankfully the Coistí of Cumann na mBunscol were able to work at short notice to get a full program of events pushed into the end of the year. Gaelscoil Éanna in Glengormley like many schools made a cautious return to after schools training after St. Patrick’s Day and were off to a flying start. The boys and girls’ of the hurling and football teams showed their great work ethic and skill when they took part in the Cumann na mBunscol championships and pulled off the double, winning both Carragher Cup in the football and the Hurling B Championship. Gelscoil Éanna has close links with Naomh Éanna, of course, and places a main emphasis on enjoyment at trainings and matches at this age group but all at Pobal Éanna will be happy with the bonus of some silverware for the year. Comhghairdeas a chairde Gael!
Scoil na Fuiseoige victorious
Scoil na Fuiseoige were victorious over St Mary’s on the Hill in the C Championship Hurling Final, thanks to a brilliant team display on Wednesday afternoon. The first half was pretty even with both schools battling well, creating a number of chances at either end. However, Scoil na Fuiseoige started the much brighter of the two in the second half and took full advantage of their relentless pressure with many scores. A special mention to Ciaran Óg, Cliodhna Kearney and Chloe McGurk who took control of the game and helped Scoil na Fuiseoige secure the win, along with other standout performers throughout the team. Congratulations to all involved, such a great achievement! A massive thank you to St Mary’s on the Hill for the game.
