Some members of the successful Naas GAA Féile Football and Hurling teams, and former students of St. Corban's visited the school with their winning trophies last Friday. Well done to all involved!
Kildare footballer and captain Eamonn Callaghan, a former St. Corban's student, visited us at the end of the year to present medals and trophies to all the boys who were successful in sports this year. Eamonn took time out of a busy week to visit us and speak to the boys and we are very grateful.
The past year has been a very successful one for the St. Corban's hurling teams with all three teams winning their respective county titles. Congratulations to each and every boy involved, who represented the school admirably. Mr. Broderick and Mr. O'Reilly would like to thank all the boys for their dedication and also thank their parents who have generously given up their time to support the teams over the course of the year.

We wrote this post on our class blog to explain Gaelic Football to a class in Canada who were wondering what the sport was like.
Gaelic Football is one of Ireland’s national sports. Football is organised by the GAA meaning Gaelic Athletic Association.
Some of the rules of Gaelic Football are:
Our county is Kildare and last year we got to the quarter finals. We were beaten by Donegal. Hopefully in 2012 we can go all the way! Dublin won’t be easy to beat!
Here are some pictures:
