Rathnew Football

We have a very strong Gaelic Football tradition in our village.  Our men's team have won the Senior County Football Championship 31 times.  We also have a women's team and children's teams for the boys from St. Ernan's and the girls from our school St Joseph's to play on.

This year Rathnew won the Senior County final yet again! We were all very proud of them. Last year it was Baltinglass they defeated in the final, this year St. Pat's.

Some of the team brought the cup to our school so we could celebrate with them.  It was a great day.  We got to hold the cup and took lots of photographs.  Thanks to the team for visiting us and also for giving us a yummy drink and packet of crisps each!
