Wicklow Represented at Half Time Against Westmeath

A huge well done to the boys who represented themselves, their schools and their county so well at half time against Westmeath in O’Moore Park on Sunday 7th April.  The team was a mixture from schools across the county: B. McCoy, K. McCoy (Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa, Glendalough), E. Miley, C. Grace (Scoil Nicoláis Naofa, Dunlavin), J. Byrne, A. McCarron (St. Laurence’s, Greystones), C. O’Brien, R. Scully (Greystones Community National School), and D. Butler, B. Morrissey (Holy Rosary, Wicklow town). A memory the boys will always have to cherish.
