Holy Trinity’s Corn Colmcille dream came to an end at Newbridge on Wednesday afternoon when St Louis Ballymena came away with a 3-9 to 3-6 victory. It was a great performance from the Holy Trinity youngsters, who were just short on the day. Well done to all the players and their coaches on an excellent campaign this year.
On Friday 11th April, our Year 8 girls participated in the in-school Trinity Cup competition for girls gaelic football. The girls were split into two teams managed by senior pupils Emer McKenna and Michaela McGuigan and staff members Miss Dillon and Miss Gormley. Following an outstanding match, the Blue Team emerged victorious by 5 points. A tremendous level of skill and fitness was evidenced during the game and no doubt these girls will go on to have fantastic playing careers for the school, their club and county. Perhaps some day, some of them might go on to replicate the achievement of Michaela on winning an Ulster School’s All-Star.
Year 8 girls gaelic training continues on Friday’s after school. All players are welcome regardless of ability or experience.
Holy Trinity College 9-13
St Columb’s Derry 4-9
Holy Trinity College reached the Corn Colmcille Semi Finals after a comprehensive victory over St Columb’s College at Banagher on Thursday morning. The opening exchanges were close with the sides level at 0-4 each after fifteen minutes. Goals from Dylan Bloomer and scores from Shane Murphy left the Cookstown boys in control at half time on a scoreline of 3-7 to 0-8. A second half fightback from St Columbs saw them reduce the gap to just three points, but Holy Trinity went on a late goal spree, with Fearghal McGarrity, Eunan Devlin , Declan McNally and Shane Murphy all finding the net. This proved to be a great team performance with Conor Loan and Sean McKenna outstanding throughout. Holy Trinity will play St Louis Ballymena next week for a place in the final.
