Our 4th class boys’ soccer team recently won the “Finn Harps – Kellys’ Toyota” soccer blitz. Our 6th class girls’ soccer team added to this great success when they won the “Kellys’ Fran Fields Cup”. Both teams took part in the “Parade of Champions” at half time at the Finn Harps v Limerick match in Finn Park Friday 26th May. Our soccer stars enjoyed their night at Finn Park and received a great reception from the Harps fans. Finn Harps beat Limerick 3-2 in an exciting game!
4th Class Boys Soccer
Indoor Soccer League 2016-2017
Boys from 4th, 5th and 6th Classses were competing in an indoor soccer league every lunchtime since November. Below are the winning teams from the league, the top goal scorer, the goal of the tournament and the player of the tournament.
In May 2015, the boys and girls of Illistrin participated in the 5 a-side soccer competition. Both teams played in Cavan in the Ulster Finals, but the boys reached the final and lost. However, the girls won in the final and went on to play in the All-Ireland final, in the Aviva stadium, Dublin. In the end, the girls came 4th. They were a big credit to our school. Mr Mc Fadden and Ms Malloy trained the girls and Mr Gallagher trained the boys.
