Ramsgrange Community School: 4.09 Presentation College / Gaelcholáiste Carlow: 2.10...... Full Report ...There was no shame in defeat for Pres/Gaelcholáiste as they more than matched a very good team containing several county players from Wexford and Waterford.....this result was bitterly disappointing for Sixth Year students Paul Gray, Seán Buggy, James Ingram, and Conal Fitzpatrick who have been pivotal figures of school hurling for the past six years. They would especially like to thank their trainers and mentors, who have given them the opportunity to represent their school and develop their skills and talents.
Well done to the U16 girls team who have qualified for the Leinster semi-final after an impressive win over St. David's S.S. on a scoreline 7-11 - 6-6.
Three Presentation College students were on the County Carlow Badminton Team who won Division 1 Leinster Intercounty on 30th December. There were ten players in total - five boys and five girls. They topped their group and faced Dublin who were a strong team in the Final. This a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work they put in over the year. They will compete in the All-IIreland on April 24th representing Carlow and Leinster. The students were Becky Hughes, Áine Dowling and Kelly Wang. Congratulations!
