The 4th class camogie team had their first training session this afternoon in glorious sunshine in Russell Park.
The girls will be training and playing some matches over the next number of weeks. Between the 4th, 5th and 6th class girls, camogie is alive and well in St.Brigids!
Mr. Lowery and Ms Ní Fhearghail accompanied 51 pupils to the final meeting of the Fingal Cross Country league yesterday. They had a great day with many pupils winning places in different races. Mr. Lowery said afterwards that everyone ran their best race and their behaviour was a credit to their parents and the school.
Unfortunately, due to a clash in schedules, 5th class were unable to take part.
Well done, everyone and thank you for representing our school and doing your best.

Well done girls!

The Leinster School’s Handball Competition took place on Friday 3rd February in two GAA clubs in Co. Carlow, Tinryland and Garryhill.
St. Brigid’s were very successful in the Dublin championships and 11 children won through to represent St. Brigid’s and Dublin.
All the children performed exceptionally well and showed great sportsmanship in victory and defeat. The standard of handball was very high and we’ve no doubt that the children will go on to play for Dublin many more times in the future.
A special congratulations to Vidya, Ava and Mae who became Leinster champions by winning their u11 competitions.
Well done all.
Erin McLoughlin, Ireland International soccer player, spoke to the girls from 4th, 5th and 6th classes last Friday. She talked about her life growing up in Donegal, how she became involved in soccer and what she needed to do to become as successful as she is. She gave the girls great advice about training, playing different sports, competing, nutrition and having a good attitude. She also emphasised the importance of education. Hopefully, Erin will be selected for the upcoming World Cup so we will all be able to watch and cheer her on.
