We were against Offaly in the final and won. 

We played three matches and won them all. 

Ed Randolph coaches us every Thursday and is a great inspiration. He also helps us reach our goals.

Katie Waters - The Future Makers

My name is Katie Waters. I am 12 years old and I am in Ms Sweeney’s 6th Class. Every week I attend Coderdojo at the Grainstore in Cabinteely.


This year I made a project based on how to find your way around your new secondary school. The project is an app designed to tell you where your next class is, when it is and what subject it is. This app helps reduce anxiousness and stress. The app can also be adapted to a train station, a hospital, a carpark etc….. etc…..

 I entered the app into a competition called The Future Makers. The Future Makers is a competition based on trying to make the world a better place through web design. On the 13th of March I got a letter from the competition saying I qualified as one of the top five finalists.
