Our hopes were high as we saw our dedicated team of footballers run onto the pitch at Croke Park and when the game started at 3.20 on a misty Thursday afternoon, we knew this was the team that for four years had set their sights on bringing home the cup. They were determined to play well and winning was the only option!
We watched their skills, their discipline and their sportsmanship. Each time they scored, our voices were raised – supporters galore encouraged them with chants and cheers. It was a fabulous game of football watched by pupils, friends, brothers, sisters, grannies, grandads, aunts, uncles and very proud parents.
The opposing team matched them kick for kick. Several times we drew even, several times we were ahead and with ten minutes to go we were flying! Scoil Phadraig from Drumcondra fought back bravely, but the St. Attracta's lads weren't giving in easily. The school motto Ar aghaidh le chéile was evident as the lads worked together showing off what they had been taught combined with their natural skills.
