Some fabulous lay-up’s came from Kyle, Jake and Jessica, while Liam, Noel and Ebose made a fine trio in defense.  Well done to Conor, Mollie,Andreea and Kamile who showed fantastic skill and pace up and down the court. Well done to you all 

Great win for camogie team


Our camogie team took to the field today for the second round of their league campaign. After a great match the first day out against St. Kilians, Kingswood which the girls were unlucky to lose they played St. Peter the Apostle, Neilstown today. The match was played in glorious sunshine the St. Dominic’s were much the brighter of the two teams, and led by 2 goals at half-time. The second half showed great commitment from the team with the highlight a Lauren O’Keefe wonder goal. It began with a great passing movement from the backs up the pitch and Lauren finished to the net with great skill. In truth, all the players deserve credit for a great team result. Every player chased after the ball for the whole match and never gave up. A special mention for Zara Dunne who took a hard knock during the match and after some quick first-aid was right back out on the field to help her team mates.

We finished the match on a winning score line of 4-0. Well done to Ms Hickey and Ms Pyne who are seeing the results of a long winter of training in the hall. A big thanks to the parents who gave a lift today to the match. Our next match is after Easter against Scoil Santain.

Excitement is building for our Sponsored Walk on Wednesday. Our senior pupils (1st-6th) will go on a 3km walk and our junior pupils (infants) will follow a 2km route. The weather forecast for the day is good. We hope to see many parents keeping up with us. Please wear a high visibility jacket if you have one. Please meet in the hall at 11am.

Thank you to the pupils who have gone to such great effort to fundraise so far. The response has been very good. Only 2 days left to find the last few sponsors with all funds going towards our new heating system. Thank you for your continued support.

Wednesday weather forecast: Most places will be dry on Wednesday, with a mixture of sunny spells and cloudy periods. But some further patches of drizzle and mist will affect parts of west Ulster and north Connacht at times. Highs of 10 to 13 C., are expected, in moderate to fresh south-westerly breezes.

Congratulations to Gillian Connolly who won our Christmas raffle. She was presented on Friday with her 3 premium level tickets for the One Direction Concert in May. Some of the teachers are very jealous! We hope you enjoy the concert.
