We are keeping ourselves very busy running around Europe this weather! We have been to visit Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower,
the Brandenburg Gate, the Wieliczka Salt Mines in Poland – and wer’e not finished yet!
Watch this space.
Mr. Maguire’s class made their way down to St. Brigid’s GAA Club today, Wednesday, 20th June, for a Camogie blitz against other schools in the Blanchardstown area. The girls walked to and from Russell Park so they certainly got plenty of exercise. This was their first experience of a camogie match and they all thoroughly enjoyed it! Earlier in the year, the St. Brigid’s Club coach had done a few training sessions with the class and all the skills that they learned during those sessions were on show today – striking, blocking, dribbling and most importantly, having fun. We’ll surely see a lot of these girls playing camogie for the school team in a couple of years.
A huge congratulations to our Cross Country Team who won the Fingal Athletics League Group C for the very first time.
Last Tuesday our Cross Country team headed off to Santry to take part in the final session of this year’s Fingal League.
Once again all our runners did their very best and ran some superb races. There were some fantastic performances in each age group.
Aimee Corcoran put in a wonderful performance to win the 3rd Class race with Adele Anigala following close behind to finish in a very impressive 3rd place. In the 5th Class race Aoife Corcoran once again put in an outstanding performance to cross the line in first place.
Several other girls finished their races within the top ten positions showing just how much they have improved since the beginning of the series. When all the scores were added up, our girls were delighted to be presented with the winners’ plaque . A well deserved reward for all the effort they put in throughout the last number of months.
Congratulations to all the girls involved and to their coach Mr Mc Crudden. We are very proud of you all.
In Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), we are very passionate about our national games. Camogie is a wonderful game. It is fast and highly skillful. Today we had a camogie display for the school. The girls who play camogie every week showed us how it is done! All girls from 3rd to 6th are welcome to come along to camogie training on Mondays after school with Mr. Devlin and Mr. Maguire. It’s a great way to keep fit and healthy — and of course to have fun!
Congratulations to the Dublin Ladies Football team, winners of the All Ireland Ladies Football Championship. In particular, we’d like to congratulate two of our former Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) girls – Leah Caffrey and Elaine Kelly – who are both involved with the Dublin Ladies Football Team. We are very proud of our connection with the team and wish them even more successes in the future. Hopefully, our former footballers will inspire a new generation of girls interested in football and we’ll get to fly the Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) – and the Dublin – flags into the future.
The girls who play camogie put on a display for the school during Seachtain na Gaeilge. It was a lovely fine afternoon and everyone enjoyed the display of skills on show. The younger children now know what they have to look forward to as they go up through the school. Well done to all the girls and to Mr. Maguire and Mr. Devlin who train the team.
