This year the school fielded three Gaelic football teams. Mr. Kenny took the senior team who were unlucky to get knocked out of the championship at the first hurdle. Mr. Kenny was very happy with the effort shown with great performances from Daniel Murphy and Jake Adamson Kane.

Mr. King took the junior team this year who travelled to Blessington for their championship match. Again it wasn’t to be for the Brendan’s boys as they were narrowly beaten by a strong Blessington side despite a spirited performance. Daniel Murphy yet again showcased his skill with the Gaelic ball, other great performances on the day included Alex Griffin in midfield and Scott Drew at centre back.

Our most successful team this year was the first year group that were jointly managed by Mr. ÓhAnnaidh and Mr. King. This group reached a Wicklow quarter final, going out to Temple Carrig in Greystones. This team have shown great promise and no doubt under Mr. ÓhAnnaidh’s tutelage can go on to claim championship success in the future. Standout players for the first year team were Andy Wall and Enda Douglas.

The numbers involved this year suggest that Gaelic football will once again go from strength to strength and will hopefully bring back silverware to the school.
