Congratulations to the boys who added to their trophy collection yesterday by winning the Division 3 final in O’Moore Park. Under the guidance of coach Dervla Dunne the boys showed great determination to defeat Kiladooley by 6 points. It was a hard fought encounter with Kiladooley taking an early 6 point lead. The Durrow boys settled down and worked out points thanks to the free taking of Cathal Murphy, with points and a goal from play from Charlie Murphy this brought Durrow to a 2 point lead at half time. An early goal in the second half from Kiladooley gave Durrow supporters cause for shortened nails but with the aid of our hard work at defending in the backs, Stephen Murphy, Ciaran Flynn and Adam Walshe, midfield from Darragh Kelly and Daniel Dooley and steady hands of Eoghan Whelan in goal the forwards had the lions share of quality ball. Forwards Charlie Murphy and Cathal Murphy and Daniel Murphy (no relation) combined well to etch out scores despite great defending from Kiladooley. Subs on the day were Séan Curran, Daniel Bowe, Keelan Carroll, and Neil Cronin. Absent from the team on the day were Oisín and Darragh Conroy who played in previous rounds and contributed hugely in the semi final victory over Ballinakill. Well done to all.

Cumann na mBunscol
Gaelic games play a huge part in the life of our school. We are fortunate to have highly dedicated members of staff, who give their time in order to train the boys and girls and develop their skills. From 1st class right through to 6th class, the boys and girls of Our Lady’s Meadow are encouraged to play hurling, camogie and football. We compete in all Cumann na mBunscoil competitions and have been extremely successful over the years. Our school has strong links with the Harps GAA and Camogie Clubs and we are very proud of the fact that many of our past pupils have represented Laois at various levels and have won All Ireland medals!
