Congratulations to the St Mary’s Newport team who played against Colaiste Chiarain

On November 24, St Mary’s Newport played against Colaiste Chiarain in Cappamore, writes sixth year student Eoin Sheldon.


The weather had a strong effect on this match. Players were dropping the ball and losing their footing due to the wet conditions. St Mary’s had a slow start compared to previous matches, despite the slow start St Mary’s lead the whole way through the match.


The heroic hooks, blocks and tackles from Paul Burke, Shane Flanagan and Aaron Coleman provided the rest of the St Mary’s team with inspiration to see out the game dominantly. Lee Ryan and Mark Nicholas superb free-taking helped to ensure the victory.


The St Mary’s Team showed the tenacity and perseverance required to win big matches. They are now into the quarter final of the D Munster Cup. Final score St Mary’s 0-17 Colaiste Chiarain 1-08. Starting team: Phelim O’Reilly, Aaron Coleman, Colm Kennedy, Paul Burke, Shane Flanagan, Jack Mullaney, Conor Barry, Eoin Sheldon, Malachy Mullaney, Jay Ryan, Mark Nicholas, Cathal Sheridan, Darren Collopy, Brian Tobin, Lee Ryan.
