Tough luck to our football team who narrowly lost out to Cloneygowan in the Cumann na mBunscol final in O’Connor Park on Wednesday. We played some wonderful football and showed huge fighting spirit and determination but it just wasn’t enough on the day. Well done to Cloneygowan for their performance and win.

This was part of the Write-A-Book Project organised by the Laois Education Centre. Well done to the children, teachers and parents for a great team effort.
