SnB v Crosshaven N.S. – Sciath na Scol Final

SNB can be very proud of their efforts today in very wet and windy weather away in Crosshaven. Crosshaven were just too strong on the day with a towering full forward and midfielder who bossed the aerial battle. We never gave up and managed to outscore Crosshaven in the second half. The boys were understandably upset at the final whistle, but they can hold their heads up in the way they represented themselves and their school. Reaching a semi final is a great achievement! Many thanks to all the teachers who coaced the boys since September: Seán Daly, Ciarán Crowley, Marie Forristal. Paul Carmody.

Finbarr swims for SnB

Finbarr swam in the Munster Schools Swimming Gala at the weekend in the University of Limerick. He represented his school Scoil na mBuachaillí with commitment and pride and swam so well in both his events the 50M Freestyle and 50M Butterfly. Well done Finbarr.
