The outcome was fantastic - The Hollypark 7 Team are 3rd in the whole of Ireland

Our two hockey teams played out thrilling final matches against St. Andrew’s last week but unfortunately after a tremendous journey throughout the league were defeated at this final hurdle.

Well done to the girls who played their hearts out all year and to their trainers and mentors for their coaching and support.

Joanna Dunne, Grace Mahon, Niamh Walsh, Rachel Lawlor,

Jessica Boyle, Anna O’Neill, Sophie Maher, Hazel Farrelly.
