Our Lady’s Secondary School U/15.5 Boys GAA team made history recently when they defeated St. Pat’s Maghera to reach the Oisin Mc Grath Cup final, this is the first time in the history of the school that a boy’s GAA team has reached an Ulster Schools A final.
The team's achievement in reaching this final is a testament to the importance of extra-curricular activities in school to providing students with opportunities for holistic development as well as the generosity of time by coaches, and the unwavering commitment of our students and the pride they show in their school.
The journey to the final has been a memorable and challenging one for the players and their mentors with victories over traditional Ulster Schools teams like St. Pat’s Armagh, St. Colman’s Newry and a one-point win over St. Pat’s Maghera in the semi-final. Principal Mr Kelly congratulated the players and their mentors Mr Bishop and Mr Mc Menamin on their success to date commenting that, "the team's success to date has been the result of their hard work and their unwavering commitment to each other and to their mentors. This has been a wonderful journey to date and the players and mentors have shown wonderful character, determination and resilience. This has been a remarkable year for GAA in our school as for the first time in the history of our school all boys’ and girls’ teams are competing at A level, a wonderful achievement for a school our size. As we look forward to our first boys A final the excitement and anticipation are palpable, and the support from teachers, students, and parents alike is testament to the wonderful school community that we have at Our Lady’s".
