Congratulations to Clonkeen College who won their first A Championship Colleges Title ever with a fully deserved win over Ard Scoil Rís at Alfie Byrne Park on Wed 1st Feb.

Cuala’s  first year minors and U16s played a significant part in the team – eight Cuala players were on the starting fifteen.  Team Managers & Teachers,  Mr Brennan and Mr Bennett paid tribute to the team’s historic win and acknowledged the significant contribution that Cuala makes to GAA life in Clonkeen College. The team now advance to the Leinster Final with a showdown match against St.Pats of Navan. A Dublin-Meath classic beckons!
