Moneenroe National School Girls 5-A-Side Soccer Success

The girls primary schools mid-Leinster FAI 5-a-side soccer finals took place in Portlaoise Leisure Centre grounds on Wednesday

3rd May. Schools from Kildare, Laois, Offaly and Kilkenny took part on the day.

Moneenroe National School were victorious after some outstanding performances. In the first game Moneenroe girls defeated Cadamstown (Kildare) 6-1 with Ellie Roche scoring 5 goals and Kate O’Brien with the other. Next up, the girls drew a hard fought game with Gaelscoil Edenderry 1-1 with Freya Coogan scoring an all important equaliser. Goalkeeper Heidi Buggy produced some outstanding saves to ensure the Moneenroe girls got a draw.

 

As only one team could be victorious on the day, it meant that it all came down to the last match against St Pius from Ballacolla, Co Laois. Ellie Roche scored the winner with a fierce strike, as the girls defended resolutely to the final whistle. There were joyous scenes as Moneenroe girls realised they had won the mid-Leinster competition. They now move on to the Leinster Finals in Navan next week.


Well done to all the players and coaches on a brilliant day.

Cian Mooney Memorial Blitz

Posted: 20th April 2023

 

This morning we held our first memorial blitz in memory of a much loved & missed past pupil Cian Mooney. We were delighted to host this blitz in Cian’s memory & welcomed his family to share this day. Cian was a great sportsman & all the pupils involved in today’s blitz gave their all in the games just like Cian would of done on many occasions for our school in the past. All games consisted of one half of hurling & one half of football and were evenly contested by all teams.

Congratulations to Michael Bradish’s team who were the first team to win the Cian Mooney Memorial Trophy today.

Thanks to all who helped out in anyway especially our refs, umpires and school staff who organised this lovely tournament in Cian’s memory.

Posted 21 November 2022

In the regional league Moneenroe/Clogh N.S. enjoyed wins over Conahy, Muckalee, Castlecomer, Freshford and Urlingford. Good wins in the Regional League allowed mentors to use a full panel allowing all girls from 3rd to 6th class match time. This placed Moneenroe in a quarter final versus St. Canices. In a tight game Moneenroe/Clogh emerged victorious beating St. Canices by five points. In the semi-final the Moneenroe/Clogh girls produced a great comeback, coming from 9 points down to beat Clara by 8 points. This resulted in a final against Tullogher Rosbercon Schools, who had a good win over Thomastown in the other semi final. In a pulsating encounter in which Tullogher Rosbercon led at half time, the Moneenroe/Clogh N.S. girls again dug deep to become Roinn A Schools Champions for the very first time winning by four points in the end.

This marks great progress for Moneenroe/Clogh N.S. in its 8th year entering the LGFA Schools Competition. Moneenroe/Clogh N.S. first entered LGFA Schools Competition in 2013. In 2015 Moneenroe/Clogh beat Conahy in a Roinn D decider. In 2018 Moneenroe/Clogh beat Muckalee in a Roinn C decider. In 2019 Moneenroe/Clogh lost out narrowly to Clara in a Roinn B Final. And this 2022 after two years of a break due to Covid 19 – Moneenroe/Clogh arrived to claim their first ever Rionn A Schools title.

Well done to all the girls involved for their hard work at training. They have made big strides forward since training started in September. Big Thanks go to the staff of Moneenroe N.S. Mr. Philip Lonergan, Mr. Michael McKeogh, Mr. Gary Kelly and Mrs. Kathleen Connolly for all their help with training, refereeing and co-ordinating matches etc., again this year.
