Coláiste Phobal Roscrea hurlers unlucky to be defeated

Congratulations to the U16 girls badminton team

On Wednesday, January 8, our senior hurling team played Doon in the Munster Quarter final.

They put up a great display on the day and were unlucky to be beaten in extra time. It was a wonderful team performance and certainly augers well for the future.

They trained over the Christmas break and this showed their level of commitment and dedication. Well done to the panel and management for all their efforts. We are very proud of you all.

The first to play were the U19s. Joe Teehan, James Treacy, Aaron Delahunty and John Delaney won the first round without losing a single game. Next up, they played Thurles putting up a great fight but sadly were knocked out. Next to play were the U16’s which is made up of two teams the first to play were Scott Kelly, Jake McLoughlin, Mason McKusker and Conall Dooley who give it their all and came out on top winning a plaque for our school.
