Congratulations to Rathcormac N.S. girls footballers who created history by winning the 8+ Teachers section of Sligo Cumann na mBunscol Finals for the first time. The School had gone very close in Finals in the past before finishing on the losing side. The final was against Ballymote N.S. who were worthy opponents.
Played in a sun kissed Markievicz Park on Monday last the Rathcormac Girls were cheered on by a sizable and vocal support. The final score in a tremendous contest was 0-7 to 0-6. Both sides displayed all that is positive in GAA games tigerish tackling, accurate passing accurate passing, high fielding, and superb score taking.
Later that week the squad members from Rathcormac N.S. 5th/6th classes travelled by train to Dublin to play a challenge game V River Valley S.N.S. in Swords County Dublin. A great reception was afforded to the team in Dublin by St Finian’s GAA Club and they had an enjoyable game of football against the current Cumann na mBunscol Dublin Champions.
