- Runners up in Limerick Leader (Primary Schools) Cup Final
winning the Olo Cup Final last week the u13 boys progressed onto the

late points by captain Ronan Lyons, Monaleen held them off for another

- Another great win by u13 boys
Thursday, May 28th, our U13 boys recorded an epic win over their local
rivals Milford in the Olo Cup final in the Gaelic Grounds. Both sides
produced wonderful hurling despite the windy conditions. Playing
into the elements in the first half we trailed by 4 pts to 2,
with both our scores coming from Ben Crowe. A quick second
half goal by Ronan Lyons got us up and running and scores were nip and
tuck right through the half. Our scores came from Ryan Power with 2
points and a R. Lyons free. Going into the last minute, it required a
late R. Lyons (re-taken) free to tie the game and send the game to
extra-time with the score 1.6 to 0.9. In the additional 10 minutes, an
Eoghan O' Driscoll point and a R.Lyons goal gave us a 2 point
margin. After the presentation of the Olo Cup to Ronan Lyons by
Ruairi Walsh of Cumann na mBunscoil, scenes of extraordinary joy
fill the Gaelic Grounds. Thanks to all the supporters and parents who
were present for this great occasion.
