Cricket

A few weeks before Ireland’s famous victory over England in the Cricket World Cup, a cricket match had been planned between CBC Prep School and Scoil Cholmcille CBS, Blarney Street.  The match took place this morning at Lansdowne in glorious sunshine.  The fact that cricket has been very much in the news this week, made the event all the more enjoyable.

The Fifth Class boys from each school competed and everyone got a chance to play.  The final result: we want more cricket.  A return match is planned for next Friday morning when the CBC boys will be the guests of Scoil Cholmchille.

The boys finished off the morning’s sport with a game of  hurling on the Astro Turf.  What energy!
