FOOTBALL | St Peter’s NS enjoy their day at the Aviva Stadium
St Peter’s NS from Dromiskin displayed silky skills, grit and determination in the finals of the Spar FAI Primary School 5s which took place in the Aviva Stadium, Dublin last Wednesday.
St Peter’s NS finished 4th in the ‘B’ Schools Cup after a tough campaign which began in March with county blitzes held nationwide.
The Dromiskin school progressed through regional and provincial finals to make it all the way to the hallowed turf of Aviva Stadium.
A total of 192 children, representing 24 schools and 12 counties, had a chance to play at the Aviva Stadium and they were cheered and supported by thousands of friends and family who made the trip.
Colin Donnelly, Spar Sales Director, said: “The SPAR FAI Primary School 5s Programme was a huge success again this year, and culminated in a fantastic day at the National Finals in Aviva Stadium.
“Spar is very proud to be supporting the programme and encouraging boys and girls nationwide to get involved and enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
“A special well done and congratulations to all the schools on getting to the National Finals and thanks to the family, friends and supporters for creating such an electric atmosphere.”
