Soccer Blitz – 10th June 2019

 

The school Soccer Blitz is a highly anticipated annual event.  The main organiser of the event is Cheilla McGrath.  This year there were 12 teams involved.  The local clubs support the event by giving us the use of their jerseys.  This is a wonderful partnership with the local clubs and really adds to the event.  Each participant receives a medal and the winners receive a much sought after trophy! Congratulations to ‘Liverpool’, who were our champions this year.
