St. Ita's Girls unlucky in County Final!

St. Ita's Girls unlucky in County Final!

St. Ita's Girls' Gaelic Football team travelled to a rain soaked St. Patrick's Park, Newcastle on Saturday 15th June. The team was attempting to make history by winning their first County Championship.


Unfortunately it was not meant to be.


St. Ita's came up against Carrick Primary School from Burren who were a bigger team and the reigning champions.

However, despite the physical advantage, the St. Ita's players fought to the very end and put in  a tremendous performance. The passing, catching, soloing, tackling and shooting skills on display were unbelievable despite the terrible conditions.


This was the first county final St.Itas's has been involved in and judging by the wonderful talent on display it will not be the last. .


We would like to thank the parents who attended on Saturday, coached the team and inspired the girls to do their very best.


The team was also very grateful for the support provided by parents and past pupils. Thank you.


We would like to thank Mr McConville for the tremendous effort he has put in to developing Gaelic football within St.Ita's; both boys and girls teams are progressing so well.


The last word must go to the girls who performed with so much tenacity on Saturday. St. Ita's is very proud of you and the success that you have achieved this year. Well done to everyone in the entire squad.


You are stars of the future! Croke Park beckons for every single one of you.


Be proud of what you have achieved this year.
