Our under 15 footballers were in Feile action over the weekend where they were drawn in a group with Kildimo Pallaskenry and St Kierans
First up were our hosts Kildimo Pallaskenry who proved too strong for us but we were back on track in the second game where we overcame the challenge of St. Kierans.
We qualified for the semi final by virtue of a better scoring difference and so a semi final with Shannon Gaels Athea on Saturday morning.
We were playing extremely well in this game but succumbed to two late goals to lose out on a 2-5 to 1-3 score-line.
A big thank you to all the players for their huge efforts and a special word of thanks to the hard working management.
You did a brilliant job and lets keep the good work going.
CROKE CUP WINNERS 2022
Massive congratulations to the victorious Ardscoil Ris team who defeated St Kierans College in Thursday decider.
A huge achievement by this team who have had their fair share of ups and downs.
With 3 starters on the team in full back John Fitzgerald who was excellent until substituted with injury, Joint captain Vince Harrington who never put a foot wrong and JJ Carey who worked his socks off from the first whistle.
Dylan Lynch was a second half substitute who supplied the killer pass for the all decisive goal in the second half.
We also had Andrew Stack, Jim Beary, Wayne Kearns, Pa O Neill and Cian Brosnan on the squad.
We congratulate each and every one of you on this momentous achievement and look forward to seeing you back in Na Piarsaigh blue in the coming weeks and months.
