We picked all the litter we could find around the school grounds and outside the school on the approach road to the school. We are taking all necessary steps to ensure that we as a school achieve Green Flag status.

Paddy Purtill Cup 1st Round- Galbally Utd 2-3 Moyglass Utd.

A very dissappointing result that see’s us exit this cup at the first hurdle. After leading twice in the game we were pegged back and Moyglass grabbed a late winner in the dying minutes. Best for Galbally on the day were Eoin Halligan and Steve McDonnell. Our goals came from Kieran O Callaghan and Quinn Perry. Team : M Thorpey, E Halligan, F Leonard, C Henebry, R Slattery, S McDonnell, B Healy, P Murphy, J Murphy, Q Perry, K O Callaghan. Subs : T Davern, P Bourke, A Sheehan, J Scully, D Frewen. Hopefully next week the boys can pick themselves up when we entertain Cashel Town in the 4th round of the Fai Junior Cup
