GCC U16 boys played St. Pauls, Monasterevin in the final of the South Leinster Junior D schools Football. Despite playing into a strong breeze in the first half, GCC were ahead at half time 2-3 to 0-8. The lead changed hands throughout the second half but the wonderful positive attitude of the boys found them level with 5 minutes to go.
The boys charged ahead with two more points to win 3-8 to 1-12. This was a great team victory with some really outstanding performances. Well done to all involved, including Máistir Ó Flaithearta who coaches the team.
