GAA President Liam O’Neill was on hand last week at the presentation of medals to the All Ireland winning team from Scoil Chriost Rí in Portlaoise.

The presentation took place in the school and parents, friends and family of the players were all present to honour their incredible achievement.

The girls won the All Ireland Ladies Post Primary School Senior Football C Championship Final on March 16 in Kinnegad.

In the decider they overcame Virginia College of Cavan on a scoreline of 2-9 to 2-5 in a memorable game.

The Portlaoise school had already claimed the Leinster title with a win over Loreto College, Navan on a wet and windy day on the all weather pitch in St Loman’s, Mullingar.
