Indoor hurling: On Wednesday 6th December, our 5th and 6th class camogie players took part in the Cumann na mBunscol indoor camogie blitz held in Kildavin. While this was a new form of the sport for our players, they quickly adapted to the rules and speed of the game and after initially coming up short against Kildavin NS, they then defeated Ballon NS and Tynock NS to qualify for the finals of the competition which will take place in January. Well done girls. Both the boys and girls have now qualified for the finals which bodes well for our outdoor hurling competitions which will take place later in the school year. A fantastic display of skill was on show from both sides, and we are so proud of them. Both teams got the ultimate prize of a night off homework for their efforts.

Rugby blitz: On day Wednesday, 13th December, the pupils from 5th and 6th Class took part in a tag rugby blitz at Tullow Rugby Club. Rathoe NS played against many other schools from around the county and showed great skill and teamwork on the day. Everyone enjoyed their time on the field and had great fun.
