Carnew notes April 27


U 12 Football League
Carnew came up against a very strong Avondale side on Monday evening April 20th. Carnew failed to get into any rhythm throughout the game and were severely punished for any mistakes made. Most notable for Carnew were Ben Gilligan, Shane Byrne and Daniel Redmond. Shay Guilfoyle scored 1-1 from play. Josh Mulhall tried hard when he came on in the second half. On a more positive note a good panel of players turned up for the game and hopefully we can look forward to a much improved performance going forward.

Coláiste Bhríde is delighted to host “The Man in the Woman’s shoes” written and performed by the award winning Mikel Murfi. The play is a solo performance and is just returning from a three week run on Broadway.

The play will run for one night only on Wednesday 6th May at 8.30 pm. Tickets costing €12 ( €10 for OAPs and students) are available from the school. Money raised will go to our School Development Fund and your support would be greatly appreciated.
