Foosball Tournament

A brilliant foosball table was very kindly donated to our school by the staff of FireEye Cork in rememberance of our pupil Dani Szalai RIP.  The pupils in 5th and 6th class decided to run their own foosball league, with pupils from 6th class organising it all and setting the fixtures.

After a few months of games at lunchtime the finals took place today, Monday the 12th of March.  Congratulations to the organisers, finalists and evental winner!  Well done all!
