Well done girls and congratulations to Noelle Healy on winning player of the match .

Teacher Mr. Martin O’ Reilly takes the pitch for Donegal !  Faye Monaghan, Niamh Carolan, Sadbh Kenny and Mia Brown  are so lucky to  be  there to cheer everyone on.



National Swimming Finals

Cameron Jackson who is in 3rd class is representing St Brigids in the Irish national swimming schools finals on Sunday. Unfortunately he was the only qualifier from St. Brigids at Leinster qualifiers in Oct. All the top underage swimmers in Ireland compete in this tournament & qualifying for it is an achievement in itself. He will be racing in the 50 meter freestyle & back crawl. His Dad says he has been absolutely flying in training & he has a really good chance in qualifying out of his heat into the final 10 in both disciplines. The competition including heats & finals are on in NAC on this Sunday. We all wish him well and hope he has a great tournament.

Well Done Boys

We are thrilled to report that the Boys Senior Football team won today at Croke Park. Having trailed by nine points at one stage, they fought hard to come back level and then to  snatch victory from Drimnagh Castle by a single point. Mr Courtney  said  ” This was one of the best games of football  I ever witnessed in Saint Brigid’s. The boys showed such courage and determination and  they all played with great speed and skill against tough oposition”

Well done to all the team and a huge congratulations to Mr. Byrne and Mr. O’ Donoghue, our team coaches.

School Sports

What a great day! We had perfect weather,  not too warm and not too sunny.  Everyone was in great spirits leaving school at 10 a.m. and the first race got underway at 10.30. Each section had 6 classes and  each class five different races. We had egg and spoon, boy’s and a girl’s  sprint,  a sack race  and a three legged race . Winners won points for their team and  the team with the most points won the section .  Everyone arrived back in school at 1pm and were so tired they just sat down in the yard during break. _MG_0062 _MG_0067 _MG_0144
