Well done to the four boys who competed strongly in the Castle Golf Cup Tournament this year. The boys had a tough day with rain and windy conditions. They showed great spirit in spite of the awful conditions. They had great shots but just fell short of the winning scores. They placed runners up and showed great pride in their school. Well done to Frank Fagan, Cillian Doyle, Aiden O’Carroll and Enda Kickham.

Cricket Team make history

St. Michael’s first ever Cricket team make history once again by winning the Leinster Cricket title. St. Michael’s Cricket team won the Leinster Final against St. Mary’s School in a fine dual. Both teams had played each other before with St. Mary’s coming out on top. However, the St. Michael’s team showed great comradery and team work to achieve the amazing victory. Well done to all the boys involved.
