District Champions 2018

Congratulations to our Boys Rackard League Football panel on winning the Gorey District this year. It has been eight years since Ballygarrett/Riverchapel last captured the trophy. Our panel of 32 players have trained very hard and applied themselves excellently to training, games and competitions from the beginning. In ahighly entertaining final, we defeated Kilrush on a scoreline of 3-6 to 2-4  on October 17th in Naomh Éanna.  A repeat of last years’ final that delivered an enthralling game from start to finish. After all the celebrations had quietened down, the team then represented the Gorey District in the county semi final and were beaten by a very strong Oulart team in the end. The team played with great spirit and determination throughout the year. Thank you to all our players and their parents from 4th, 5th and 6th classes. Thank you to all our teachers and coaches from both Ballygarrett NS and Riverchapel NS for their volunteerism and effort throughout the term. We now look forward to working with our Development Squad in the coming months!
