The Corn Ui Mhuiri, Senior Football Muster Colleges got underway today and we started with a good battle against Coláiste Choilm , Ballincollig.
Chríost Rí shaded a very tight game by a single point 1-14 to 1-13.
Well done to all players involved as well as to Mr Kerrigan and Mr Coughlan.
Here we see Ronan Dalton and Fiachra Ó Cróinín ready to contest a throw-up from the referee.
The Under 16 Hurlers performed heroically last week, losing a tight game against Ballincollig Community School but we have a small video to mark them and also to praise their contribution to the school.
Hard luck lads and well done.
Each year the Lord Mayor of Cork visits the school.
This is a proud tradition and one of the highlights of the year for our students and staff. Long may it continue!!
Last week , the present Lord Mayor, Cllr Tony Fitzgerald took time from his very busy schedule to visit the school where he was welcomed by our Students Council as well as by our Principal Micheál Ó Ciardha. The visit is pictured below.
We thank the Lord Mayor for paying us this honour and we wish him every success in his year ahead.
We close the preparation time for the game with this famous kit.
We see David Moylan with the kit worn by his uncle John Hodgins in the 1980s.
Again best to all on Sunday
In our last few words on the great sporting occasion, the Cork Senior Football Final, we visit a few historic kits from the two clubs.
First up are two Nemo lads - Jack D O Brien in his dad's old Nemo kit alongside Cian Kennefick with another blast from the past
