Junior Cert Student represents Ireland

We are very proud of and wish to recognize the achievements of our Junior Certificate student Amy Mahon who has been named in the Republic of Ireland under 15 girls schools squad. Amy got her first taste of International football recently when she lined out for the Republic of Ireland v Northern Ireland in a very entertaining game when honours ended even in a 0-0 draw a couple of weeks ago. Along with being an integral part of school teams Amy is also very much involved in the local Charlestown Ladies Gaelic team and Castlebar Celtic soccer team. Amy has a very busy schedule in the next few months both in the classroom and on the various sports pitches. The highlight will, no doubt be, putting on the Irish international jersey to represent her school, town and country in Spain for the Bob Docherty Cup. This year's Bob Docherty Cup runs from Sunday, April 21st, to Wednesday, April 24th, in Salou, Spain.
