The Junior Cycle Irish Debating team successfully got through to the Gael-Linn Craobh Réigiúnach which will take place before the mid term break. The motion of the debate was ' Is maith ann iad facebook agus na meáin shóisialta eile!' and the team Amy Tuite, Áine Brady, Máire Ní Churraoin and Róisín Hickey (substitute) were in favour of the motion. The standard was extremely high and the debate was hotly discussed amongst the other competing teams of Scoil Pháirc Sandford Raghnallach, BAC, Coláiste Pobail Dhomhnach Seachnaill, Co. na Mí and Mainistir Loreto, Deilginis ,BÁC. Two of the 4 teams competing made it through. Therefore Scoil Mhuire will meet Coláiste Pobail Dhomhnach Seachnaill again in the regional finals.

Venue: Longford Slashers GAA Complex
Opposition: Scoil Mhuire S.S. Longford
In miserable playing conditions our senior team overcame Scoil Mhuire S.S Longford after an epic struggle. Following a slow start, the Trim girls got into their stride and at half time lead on a score line of 2-6 to 1-3. With a 6 point lead going into the second half an easy victory looked on the cards. But the Longford girls had other ideas and as the game progressed wiped out our interval lead to go ahead by a point with 2 minutes left on the clock. Our team reasserted themselves and mounted attack after attack but unfortunately shot three wides. To us on the side line…….all seemed lost. But the valiant girls on the pitch didn’t give up hope and mounted one last ‘desperate’ attack. A Longford defender was pressurised by Sophia Payne and Sarah Bagnall to loose the ball: this was worked into B. O’Toole whose shot was saved by the goalkeeper…dispossessed by Sophia Payne, the ball ended up in the possession of Susan Kealey who, without hesitation, lashed it into the “onion sack”. Ecstasy in the Trim camp dejection in the Longford camp. Final score Trim 3-7 to 2-8. Scoil Mhuire’s senior footballers are now through to the Leinster semi-final. Best of luck in your next match girls.
