Today was a fantastic day in the history of St Michael’s PS. Our P7 & P6 girls set off as County Champions representing Co Armagh in the Cumann naMbunscol Ulster Final held in The Meadowbank Sports Arena, Magherafelt.
They enjoyed a rousing send off and headed on their journey filled with hope, excitement & determination. When they arrived at Magherafelt they were split into 2 groups to play Around Robin Competitions.
After victories over Donegal & Down and a defeat to Antrim, the girls qualified for the semi-final against Tyrone. Despite a spirited performance, the girls unfortunately lost to a very skilful and competent team from St John’s PS, Ballgawley who continued on to become the Ulster Champions.
We are so proud of this great team of girls for representing their school, community and clubs with great distinction. To quote the team captain “We are small in number but it is the quality that counts, not the quantity!”, and they certainly proved this today by achieving 3rd place in the Ulster Final.
They truly deserved the eruptous welcome they got when they arrived home again.
Brilliant work girls!!
