First Year Hockey Blitz


On Wednesday, 15th February, two first year hockey teams travelled to Bandon Grammar School in county Cork for a day long blitz. Both teams played a minimum of four games against schools including Coláiste na Toirbhirte Bandon, Christ the King Secondary School, Regina Mundi, Intermediate Killorglin, Ashton School, Colaiste Choilm Ballincollig, and Bandon Grammar School. After some very close matches Loreto Clonmel succeeded in winning the tournament and their win underlines how much they have improved. The girls are very committed to training and this result was just reward for all their hard work.

The following players travelled with Ms Naughton and Ms Hally to Bandon: Jess, Doireann, Aislinn, Eimear, Abbey, Emma, Saoirse, Rachel, Ella, Áine, Katy, Tara,Niamh, Triona, Kayla, Ciara, Casey, Katie, Ellie, Aoife and Katie.

Many thanks to Mr. Ryan and Ms. Naughton for all the hard work they have put into coaching the girls,and to TY assistants Amy and Lorraine who have helped to facilitate training since the beginning of the year.
