Murroe Boher Community Games: Very well done to our U12 team led by Captain Tom Ryan who finished in 4th place overall in the Limerick Community Games U13 Boys Indoor 5-a-side Soccer. They did exceptionally well for a team who never played 5 a side before and did us all very proud.  Unfortunately, they were beaten by a class Caherdavin A team in the semi-final.  We then played in our 3rd place playoff game against Cappagh in a very entertaining game against Cappagh but lost 9 goals to 8.  Well done to Tom Ryan, John O’Keefe, Callum Condon, Tommy Cusack, Cathal Foley, Freddie French & Patrick Swords.

Well done also to all who participated in the Art, Model making and handwriting competitions last weekend.  The qualifiers will now represent us in the County events on January 26th – good luck to all.
