Dance Workshop Fun

On the 19th and 20th of December, after three months of practice, the children finally put on their Funky Kids Concert for all their family and friends. It was a fantastic show filled with lots of brilliant singing and dancing. There was something for everyone, from Noah’s Ark and The Grease Melody to Puppet on a String and Monster Mash. It was great to see everybody up singing and dancing and having FUN!

Congratulations to all the 5th and 6th class pupils who were part of the victorious Rackard League Football Team. The team defeated Oulart in the Enniscorthy District Final yesterday on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-2.

Padraig Waters (1-2) had a great game, getting vital scores in the first half when there was very little between the teams. Ryan Purcell used his height to his advantage at full forward, making things very difficult for the Oulart full back line.

Danny Fitzhenry was very influential at midfield, supplying great balls into the forwards. Dylan Purcell, David Nolan  and Noel Cowman were powerful in the backs throughout the 50 minutes. James Aylward was introduced towards the end and made his mark on the game.

Kiltealy players: Ryan Purcell, Padraig Waters, Danny Fitzhenry, David Nolan, Dylan Purcell, Noel Cowman, James Aylward, Jacques Neville and Cillian Hanrahan all made appearances on the team throughout the league campaign.

The team now go on to contest the county semi-final which will be played after the mid-term break.

Well done to the boys for getting this far in the league. We are very proud of their success and we will be out again in numbers to support them on their quest to the final.

The boys football team were in hard luck on Monday afternoon when they were defeated by Fethard on a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-6 at the semi-final stage of the Rackard League. All Kiltealy players put in a mighty performance and were unfortunate to come out of the game with a loss. The team were well in contention at half-time but a few second half controversial decisions did not go in their favour and a victory slowly slipped away.

Well done to the entire team who did themselves, their schools and their families very proud throughout the league.

We look forward to seeing these boys in hurling action later in the school year as no doubt they will put in another great league campaign.
