On Thursday, the county championship hurling and camogie blitz was played in Hibernian Park in Burt. The pitch was in fantastic condition and ready for a great day of hurling and camogie.

In the camogie, our girls were faced with the challenge of Dromore NS and St. Mura NS. After a tough one goal loss to St. Muras in the group and a fantastic win against Dromore, the girls played in the semi-final against Dromore again to see who would progress into the final against St.Muras. After a titanic battle in a low scoring game the girls came out winners and got ready to play against a very strong St.Muras side. Unfortunately the breaks did not go our way and St.Muras took the trophy back to Tooban. Our camogie team have been a fantastic representation of the school this year and we are immensely proud of them.

In the hurling, the boys played against St.Muras NS, Dromore NS and Carndonagh Boys School. After three convincing wins in the group, they progressed to the final to play Dromore NS. The skill on show by our team in the group matches was nothing short of outstanding with some scores and saves that would be a highlight reel on the Sunday Game. This made them strong favorites heading into the final. The pressure did not get to the team and they produced another spectacular performance. The defenders ensured no easy scores were conceded and the goals and points continued to be scored by the forwards. The final score showed another dominant performance by the boys and ensured the County Championship Shield would be returning to St.Aengus again. Our captain Conor received the shield from Colm Davis, former St.Aengus teacher and St.Muras principal. It was another outstanding day for the school and the two teams were a credit to their clubs, their families and the school.
