Belated congratulations to All-Ireland Champions
Tubberclare boys had a magnificent victory in the All-Ireland Community Games Futsol competition. The team, managed by  Vincent O’Connor, was composed mainly of current or past-pupils of St Clare’s National School: Stephen O’Connor (Captain), Paul Garvey, Rioch Connell and Marcus Blagriff, have now moved into first year at the the Marist College secondary school, while Sean Claffey  and Aaron Brady are currently in sixth class.  After winning the Westmeath County Championship, Tubberclare were victorious over the champions of Laois/Offaly, Longford/Meath and Carlow/Kildare/Dublin in the Leinster section of the competition. In the All-Ireland Final Tournament, played at  Athlone Institute of Technology, they beat the  Munster champions, Limerick, in the semi-final, and the Connacht Champions, Sligo, in the All Ireland final. Well done to all the lads!
