St. Teresas National School Success:
Pride of place this week has to go to the St Teresas National School Killoe winners of the mixed football A Championship on Wednesday evening last in Pearse Park against Newtownforbes. It was a great game played in a great sporting manner which both teams should be commended for. The result was in the balance right up to the end. In the end Killoe held on to win by 3 points.
Congratulations to all the boys and girls on a great year doing the double league and championship. Well done to their management team also Mr. Toher, Mr. Mimnagh, Mr. Mulligan and Master Harte.
Best of luck to the school girls football team who play in their final this week and to their management team of Gerry Rowley and Marie Brady.
Great to see such success at this age group in the parish as this surely sets the tone for years to come.
