Thank you to all the children, parents and staff who joined us on our traditional Christmas Green Schools Walk to school. It was a great success and enjoyed by all. Merry Christmas from all the Green Team in St. Seachnall’s N.S.
Congratulations to the boy’s senior Gaelic team from St. Seachnall’s on their historic win in the Cumann na mBunscol Division One final against Dunboyne SPS yesterday (Wednesday) in Dunganny. It was the first boys’ title in the top tier of Meath school league football and it ended a 24 year wait since a boys’ team from the school won a Meath schools final. On that occasion in 1991 St. Seachnall’s were competing in Division Two. The final score in yesterday’s decider was St. Seachnall’s 4-7 Dunboyne 3-4 and there were wild scenes of celebration as captain Cian Edwards lifted the Division One cup after the final whistle. There was a bonus for St Seachnall's when goalkeeper Jack Harrington was selected as the recipient of the Spirit of the Final award. The awards, awarded to a player from each Cumann na mBunscol final, will be presented on Wednesday 9th December by members of the sponsors GENERALI in the Newgrange Hotel, Navan from 11am.
The school would first of all like to thank the panel of 30 players for their time and enthusiasm over the past 3 months in attending training sessions after school. Secondly we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the mentors Ms. O’Sullivan, Mr. Slack and Ms. Kane who have given great commitment and dedication since September in training the boys and ensuring they were well prepared for their matches. We would also like to thank Ms. Shannon and Ms. O’Brien for their work not only with training the senior girl’s team but also helping out in preparations for the boy’s final. Finally it was great to see such a large attendance from the St. Seachnall’s community on the sidelines in Dunganny. Thank you to the parents and staff members who travelled in such big numbers!! Medals will be presented to the panel of players at a later date. For now we salute the boys from St. Seachnall’s, Meath Schools Gaelic champions for 2015.
