We are so proud of our hurlers who played in the final in Croke Park on Monday 12th of June! They put in a tremendous performance with each and every team member playing a starring role! Masive congratulations boys! Thanks as always to the parents, family and friends who supported in huge numbers and a special word of thanks to Ms. Drohan and Mr. Culligan who coached the team for success!
We had great success once again in the field events in Santry Stadium with both Dominic Chebac and Callum Flanagan bringing home bronze medals! Representing the school were: Matthew O' Loughlin U11 hurdles; Daniel Barrett U14 hurdles and Dominic Chebac U12's. Luke Traynor did really well in the shot putt event. Daniil Climov and Dylan Farrell both took respectable places after a tremendous effort in their races. In the long distance Callum Flanagan came from 4th to secure the bronze medal. Well done to all and thanks to Mr. Culligan and Ms. Feeney for coaching the boys.
Pictured above are our 2017 soccer team. The boys put in some fantastic performances throughout their campaign but unfortunately their run came to an end when they were beaten by a superior St. Brigid's Killester side. We are very proud of all the boys who represented the school so well in their attitudes and sportsmanship. Thank you to all the parents who gave lifts and supported our team. A big thank you also to Mr. O' Rourke who gave up his own time to organise matches, training and look after the team.

Holy Child Boys' defeated Holy Spirit, Ballymun in their first league game. The final score was 4-1 which doesn't reflect how tight the game was. Scorers on the day were Callum Flanagan, Byron Preston, Cian Ashmore and Joey Elliott. Man of the match was awarded to Dominic Chebac. Well done boys!
Congratulations to the following boys who were selected for this year's soccer league.

Thanks also to Mr. O'Rourke for giving up his spare time after school to take the boys out for trials. We wish the team the best of luck for the upcoming season and will keep you updated with news.
Pictured above are our 2016 school Gaelic football team. The boys had a very difficult draw for the league stage and unfortunately didn't record a win. However their performances did lead to a shield quarter-final versus Holy Trinity, Donaghmede. The boys put in a fantastic team display and were very unlucky to be defeated on a scoreline of 5-4 to 5-9. The boys did a great job representing our school on each occasion.
We thank the team managers Mr. O'Rourke and Ms. Lynch for giving up their free time to take the football team this year. We also thank parents who provided lifts and gave their support over the last four weeks. We now look forward to hurling and soccer later on in the year.
