Our Senior soccer team has started the school year with an impressive show of football. Soccer has become hugely popular this year with our seniors. The dedication, enthusiasm, sportsmanship and sheer excitement that this team brings to the pitch is outstanding. Without fail, every Tuesday over twenty lads train, fighting for a position to play in the two competitions, League and Cup. The lads are a credit to themselves and hopefully the hard work and dedication pays off, bringing home some silverware to St Colmcille's Community School.
