Hurlers add North Leinster Title to Trophy Cabinet
On Friday last our U16 hurlers took on Haywood Community School of Co. Laois in the North Leinster final. The battle was a close one for most parts with the sides entering the dressing rooms at half time level on the scoreboard. CBS played against the wind in the second half and this took its toll as they found themselves behind by 5 points. However a late rally saw the boys in green pip their opposition in the last minutes of the game.
Management duo of Mr M. Lawler and Mr. Kelly were elated with their sides victory with the latter commenting, "This was a titanic effort by all the players". Mr Lawler pointed out that this team had also overcome a deficit in the semi final and he remarked that; "the manner of victory is testament to the calibre of students we have in Coláiste Mhuire".
The team now faces Johnstown of Kilkenny in a provincial decider, the date and venue are yet to be finalised.
