What an exciting time it has been in Glór na Mara over the past number of weeks! Following a sucessful league campaign, Glór na Mara U-13 boys’ gaelic football team traveled to Walsh Park on Tuesday 21st October to play in the Eastern Final. Their opponents were Butlerstown, a formidable outfit. It was certainly a game of two halves, with Glór na Mara failing to score in the first half. However the boys put in a determined display in the second half, outscoring Butlerstown and holding firm to win on a scoreline of 3-0 to 2-1. There were great scenes of excitement as the final whistle blew. Jack Brennan accepted the cup on behalf of the team. Well done to all involved!



The girls’ gaelic football team traveled to Walsh Park the next day, having been there the previous day supporting and cheering on their friends and classmates in the boys’ final. The girls were facing a strong Seafield/Knockmahon team, who opened the scoring and went into half time in the lead. However, the hard work, determination, skill and teamwork produced by the team in the second half ensured they ran out winners on a scoreline of 4-1 to 2-1. Joint captains Halimat Taiwo and Holy Ahern accepted the trophy on behalf of the team, to the loud cheers of all the great supporters who were there present.


Wednesday 22nd October 2014 will surely go down in Glór na Mara history as the girls, in winning their final, meant Glór na Mara recorded this historic double victory!


This display was a result of the hard work, effort and commitment the girls have put in at training sessions since September. We are delighted this year to have over 30 girls playing gaelic football. Although not everyone could play in the final, the whole panel have represented the school in many different matches this year. Well done to all involved!

The U-1o boys participated strongly in a number of Go Games Blitzes. The boys represented the school extremely well and can be very proud of their efforts.

Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday at 2:45pm in Tramore GAA pitch.

Huge thanks to Michael and his team in Tramore GAA Club for setting up the pitches and for the use of the club’s excellent facilities.

Everyone put alot of effart into them. All of us got to draw our big cats.

We got to write some facts. After we were finished our project we put them on our classroom wall.

They looked very nice indeed.
