Well done to the boys' football team on a great win in the championship on Wednesday in Mullingar.  They defeated St. Colman's on a scoreline of 6-5 to 3-6.  Despite trailing at half time by a point, two goals in the final few minutes secured victory.  The boys play Kilpatrick in their final group game on Friday week and a win would secure a semi-final spot in the Division 1 competition.  Well done lads!
