New sport arrives in CDL

This year a camogie team was formed in Coláiste De Lacy and our students took part in the Meath/Kildare Novice Schools Senior league. Participating in a league with older and more experienced players, Coláiste De Lacy stepped up and produced some super displays against Coláiste Chiarain Leixlip, St. Peter’s College Dunboyne and Athboy CS. A rock tight defense, strong running in the midfield and a versatile forward line that defended as well as scored ensure that we competed well with more established schools.  An important mention needs to be given to the large number of players have only started playing since September. These girls have rose to the tough challenge set by competing with players that have represented their counties at minor level. Training continues every week and numbers are growing. We look forward to playing in the Meath/Kildare Junior League that will begin in February.
