The Cumann na mBunscol u/11 boys football league kicked off on 11st September with a win against Scoil Mochua. A defeat against Rathcoffey NS and a win against Clogherinkoe NS put us in the semi-final against Scoil Bhride, Naas who were tough opposition and winners on the day. The whole team showed great skill, talent and determination during the league with many dual players also playing in the u/11 Hurling league which began on 28th September. The boys beat Straffan NS, were defeated by Scoil Mochua  and got a walk-over from

St. Joseph’s NS. Another semi-final was on the cards, this time against Gael Scoil Naas. The boys battled hard to get scores on the board but the Gael Scoil were the winners on the day.

To get to 2 semi-finals is a fantastic achievement and we are very proud of these lads.  Many thanks to Mr. Sweeney & Mr. Ryan, to the Cappagh Club coaches and to the Parents/Guardians for driving the boys to the games.
