Letterkenny Schools’ Competition 2022

Our girls took part in a Letterkenny Schools competition. Having topped their group, with 2 wins and a draw, they went to play Lurgybrack N.S in the final.
A thrilling game ensued with both teams playing out a fantastic 3-3 draw.
Unfortunately we were pipped in the penalty shootout.
A massive thanks to the whole squad for all their efforts. They really deserved to be taking home the trophy, but sport can be cruel sometimes

Soccer/Five a-side

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.
