Spar All Ireland 5 a side Football Tournament


Queen of Angels Girls took their place alongside 17 other teams in the South Dublin Qualifiers of the Spar All Ireland 5 a side Football Tournament.

The tournament involves over 20,000 participants from primary schools all over the country and the finals are played in the Aviva Stadium. These qualifiers took place at the foot of the Dublin Mountains in the superb facilities of Wayside Celtic on 3 April 2019. It was a cold and breezy morning as the girls played in 4 matches.

The squad was made up of students from 5th and 6th classes. They won two games and lost two games, scoring a very credible 12 goals in the process. Top scorer was Kathlyn Maguire with 7 goals, followed by Edith Mills with 3 Marame Yakoubi and Mia Pallarolas chipping in with one each. The rest of the squad who played with a lot of enthusiasm and effort consisted of Hannah Busari, Hind Nouar, Mercy Olasehinde and Mihed Yakoubi.

A special thank you, to all the school staff, that make it possible for the students to take part in such high profile sporting events like this.
