Pres Thurles - Badminton All-Ireland Champions!!

HUGE congratulations to our U-14 Badminton players who were crowned All-Ireland champions last week. Having won the Munster title last month, our Pres girls represented Munster against the other provinces in an All-Ireland tournament held in Gormanstown, Co. Meath. They defeated Ulster 6-0 and Leinster (Presentation Kilkenny) 5-1. This is an amazing victory for the girls and a first at this age category for the Pres. The All-Ireland winning team comprised of Eimear Duggan, Paula Concepcion, Aoife O’Grady, Caragh Ryan, Sinéad Henderson, Emma Day and Sarah Dunne. Well done to the girls on their excellent victory and brilliant performances and a massive ‘Thank You’ to their coach, Mr Stephen Maher. Pres abú!

Gaelic Football All-Ireland Final

Commiserations to our Junior B Gaelic Football team who were defeated by the narrowest of margins against Loreto Grammar School, Omagh in what was a fiercely contested All-Ireland final in Ballinasloe last weekend. Loreto Omagh sprinted from the blocks running into an early 1-4 to 0-1 lead. Our girls demonstrated true Pres spirit and responded brilliantly with an unanswered comeback levelling the score at half time. It was 1-4 a piece at the break with all to play for. Loreto Omagh snatched a goal at the very start of the second half. Once more our valiant girls stormed back scoring another 1-4 on the trot racing into a 2-8 to 2-5 lead with less than ten minutes to go. However, Loreto Omagh burst through for another goal to level this nail-biting encounter. In the dying minutes, Omagh snatched a late match-winning point to claim the title. While it was a heart-breaking final result for our team and mentors, it was a fantastic and spirited performance. We are incredibly proud of each and every girl on this panel and their coaches, Mr Barry Ryan and Mr Cian Treacy. Be proud of your achievements!
