St Malachy's High All-Ireland Champions

November 8, 2018

Castlewellan GAC hosted  welcome home celebrations in Castlewellan on Saturday night in traditional fashion for All-Ireland Champions. And worthy champions this young St Malachy’s High School team undoubtedly were confounding their critics with a brilliant all round performance in the All-Ireland Final of the U18 Vocational Schools competition at O’Moore Park Portlaoise on Saturday April 5th when they completely outplayed and outclassed their opponents St Brogan’s College Bandon Cork.

From start to finish they kept a clear lead trotting home to victory 1.12 to 0.05. Congratulations St Malachy’s and manager Pj Magee ably assisted by Paul Duffin, Eamon Devlin and Peter Hynes.

St Malachy’s GAC would like to say a special word of thanks to Sean McKay of Spa Pallets who provided his lorry at short notice for use for platform and stage. Thanks also to the Cowen families Jimmy, Paddy and daughter for providing music to entertain the crowds and for their PA system. All services were given voluntary
