Sciath na Scol

Our School Final

On Tuesday 27th of May we in Farran National School reached the Sciath na Scol final. It was a game we awaited with great anticipation. We played in Páirc Uí Rínn against our rivals Dripsey. As the colour of the two school jerseys are similar we wore the Éire Óg colours on the day. Filled with excitement, we left the school and arrived at Páirc Uí Rínn at 2.15 and eagerly went into the dressing rooms where we were given the team list and a resounding pep talk!

As we ran on to the pitch, we were very excited to hear and see all our supporters. The game started off at a blistering pace with Farran scoring the first two points. From then on both teams exchanged scores but at half time we were trailing by one point.

The tension was palpable at the start of the second half. Dripsey got off to a better start and scored a goal, and we now trailed by four points. However we fought back and scored a goal. With four minutes remaining we scored a few spectacular points and suddenly we were ahead, and when full time was called the title was ours.

We are all very grateful to our coaches, teachers and supporters who turned out in great numbers to support our team.
