Schoolboy Final 

Hard luck to the St. Mary’s NS team who were narrowly beaten by Fermoyle, 1-10 to 0-9 in the Division 1A championship final last Thursday. In an exciting contest, the goal only came at the end. Everyone is very proud of their efforts. Well done to Leah Waters on winning Player of the Match. A special word of thanks to their coach Mike Mulleady who has been working hard in the school now for a number of years. St. Patrick’s NS, Ballinamuck played the championship final yesterday, Tuesday, against Killasonna. Thank you to coach Enda McGahern for the great work he has done there and the boys and girls have done the parish proud. There is a great future for St. Helen’s and St. Vincent’s with the talent in both schools.
