FAI Primary School 5's 2023
This years 5 a side took place on Thursday 20th April at Mervue United Football Club, Galway.
There was plenty of tight games, we were on the unfortunate side of many close games. In our final match, Kumbo, Padraic, Joshua and Conall banged in the goals for a 5-0 victory. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to qualify. All the boys played meaningful game time and represented the school very admirably with their manners and sense of play.
