Cashel C.S. bow out of Munster final with a stylish and committed display

Cashel C.S. bow out of Munster final with a stylish and committed display.

On Saturday 17th February Cashel Community School’s senior hurlers played in the final of the Thomais MhicCholm cup. Having beaten Bandon by that slimmest of margins- the lone point, it was their fate to lose by that elusive point to a Mitchelstown team. A massive turnout of support from staff, families and friends watched from the sidelines as Cashel matched Mitchelstown CBS play for play throughout the match. Cashel’s Eoghan Connolly was ‘man of the match’- an indication of just how close this game was. Cashel scored 19 times, a remarkable tally. It was very gratifying to witness such a spirited display which had been forged by a huge amount of training and commitment.

Having congratulated the victors the Cashel team regrouped and returned to the school later that afternoon. Speaking at a reception to honour their achievement the Principal, John Gallagher thanked the team and paid tribute to their coaches Brendan Ryan, Anthony Roche and Donal O’Dwyer. Mr. Gallagher thanked the parents and supporters who consistently brought players to training sessions-even during the Christmas holidays and early mornings before school started.

The school is hugely proud of their achievement and we look forward to further success next year.
