Football Matches

Well done to our boys’ team who fought really hard to win their first football match against Pullough on Friday.  Their next match takes place in Geashill against Gaelscoil Éadan Doire on Thursday at 3pm.

Our girls take on Ballybryan on Wednesday at 2.15pm in Geashill.  This will be their first match of the season and we wish them the best of luck.


Congratulations to the 6th Class pupils who were confirmed in St. Joseph’s Church , Ballinagar on Friday 23rd March.  Thanks to everyone who helped make the day so special, including Bishop Denis Nulty, Msgr. Coonan and Fr. Stapleton.  Well done to the children from 3rd, 4th and 5th Classes who joined their counterparts from Ballinagar N.S. in the choir.

French Visitors

We had a very exciting morning on Friday when nine visitors from Jaux , including the mayor and vice-mayor, came to the school.  They were joined by BBG Town Twinning committee members.  All classes performed a variety of poems, songs, music and dance much to the delight of our guests. Well done to everyone involved.

Take a look at some Irish Dancing below.


FAI 5-a-side Soccer

We had great success at the 5-a-side soccer competition which took place in Leah Victoria Park in Tullamore today.

The boys’ team topped their group following a draw and three wins while the girls’ team finished second with three wins and one loss.  Both teams have now qualified for the Offaly finals which will take place on April 12th, at the same venue.  Well done to all!
