On St Patrick’s Day the school were revelling in the glory of a historic first ever Ulster GAA McLarnon Schools Cup Football triumph. Remarkably the players, management and school itself have had little time to bask in that glory as the journey continues on Wednesday, with a trip to take on the Leinster Champions, in the All Ireland semi final of the competition.

St. Mary’s of Carlow will be in opposition and will stand in the way of a famous All Ireland Senior B Colleges Championship Final appearance – that tie going down for decision in Mullingar at 1pm. For St. Ciaran’s it is new territory in many ways albeit they have celebrated All Ireland Vocational Schools success in the past.

An impressive all-round team performance in the Ulster final caught the attention of many with the particular brilliance of Darragh Canavan to the fore. Conor and Cathair Quinn, Caoimhin O’Donnelly, Daniel Millar, Callum Corrigan and Joseph Oguz are integral figures in a side that will be difficult to stop on a very focussed path towards All Ireland glory in the colleges arena.

Errigal Ciaran’s Maria Canavan and Ulster’s “Young Player of the Year”, St. Macartans’ Chloe McCaffrey, are two of the most exciting players to have donned the school jersey and will need to feature prominently in the attack if success is to be achieved.

It is a first year in the school for Neamh Woods and the brilliant Tyrone Ladies football star will be hoping for a famous managerial triumph now with Selena Oguz. They will meet St. John the Baptist Community School, Limerick, in Cusack Park, Mullingar, at 1pm on Friday. St. Ciaran’s to turn on the “Style” on the Catwalk…
