IRELAND SCHOOL CUP
BLACKROCKCOLLEGE 6 V. CBS THURLES 36
Captain Michael Ryan (3rd Year) and his side came up against an outstanding CBS Thurles side who were at the top of their game and deserved victors.
The Squad put in a huge effort throughout the game and never gave in. This character in the Squad gives much cause for optimism for the rest of the season.
Special mention must go to Harry Moraghan, Cian Brennan and Andrew Kennedy (all 2nd Year) who performed very well.
I thank our Coaches Mr O’Neill and Shane Kelly (Class of 2013) for their work with both sides.
