Girls from fifth and sixth class took part in the mini-7 gaelic football blitz on February 29th 2016 in Martinstown.

Bruree met Glenbrohane in the first match and this was followed by another win against Herbertstown. 

In the final the girls played against Hospital and after an action-packed match came out as overall winners on the day.

We await to hear the venue for the next stage of this competition. Well done to all those who played, our subs and supporters.

Thanks to John Brudair and Frances Killeen for their skills and coaching sessions and to Ms Cussen and Ms. Hannon.

The Girls Football 2015-2016.
The girls football started back after the summer holidays. Training was on a Thursday coached by Frances Killeen , Miss O’ Dea and Miss Cussen. This year we were entering in the Premier Division .
The matches started at the end of September.  Our first match was against Bruff.  It was a tough game but we made our way to the semi-finals.  Our second match was against Kilmallock.It was an exciting match and we were successfully into the finals. We were on a winning streak!  All we had to do now was to win against Bruff again in the final in Martinstown .
It was harder than we expected but we came out victorious - with a score of 3-5 to 1-2.  Next it was onto the County. The County games were on in Rathkeale. Our semi-final was against Monaleen.  The weather conditions were horrible. It was freezing and lashing rain!  During the first half, Bruree were out in the front leading by 1 point.   However, in spite of all our best efforts we narrowly lost the game.  We were very disappointed but we made a great effort.   Come on the girls !

FOOTBALL SUCCESS FOR BRUREE N.S

 

Our new school year began and with it the excitement only the South Schools Competition could bring. This year was the first year we had direct access to the GAA field and every Thursday all the lads would rush onto the field looking forward to another training session.

In the lead up to our first game against Bruff everyone was putting 100% effort into every training session.

 

In our first game we played our mighty rivals Bruff. We were captained by Ian Finn and coached by Mr. Woulfe and Ger Sexton. It was a tough match for us and we lost by a couple of points. We still had a chance to get to the final if we won against Kilmallock. A few weeks later Kilmallock paid Bruree a visit and they didn’t enjoy it. We won well and we were into the final where we would once again face Bruff.

The final which was played the week later was another tough match and there were a few clashes.

 

We held on in the last few minutes to win by a slim margin. We had won! The noise on the bus on the way home was sensational! The girls had also won their final so everyone was happy. We went on to the County Semi-Final but sadly lost. Though there was no shame in going out to Lisnagry last year’s winners. All in all I think it was a good year for Bruree School footballers!
