Cumann na mBunscol Division 2 Shield Boys Football Round 5
Slane N.S. 1-
St. Patrick’s boys GAA team finished their campaign in the Cumann na mBunscol competition this week with a game against Scoil Éanna, Navan. Scoil Éanna had been undefeated throughout the competition and it was easy to tell as they were too strong for our team.
Despite the scoreboard, Slane played some very good football and defended resolutely throughout. But for some fine saves from Óisin Mooney, the difference would have been greater. Slane finish joint third in the competition. Well done to all the players this season.

Cumann na mBunscol Division 2 Shield Boys Football Round 4
Slane N.S. 4-
St. Patrick’s boys GAA team made it two wins from two in the Cumann na mBunscol competition this week with a home win over Gaelscoil Thúlach na nÓg. Slane attacked early and landed a very early goal and a point, courtesy of Michael Leavey and Evan Murray. Remarkably, there were no further scores in the half. The Gaelscoil attacked in waves for the next fifteen minutes but could not breach the Slane rearguard. The work of Kevin Hevey, Matthew Kealy, Daragh Russell Kerins and composed kick outs from Óisín Mooney kept Slane ahead at the break.
In the second half, Slane N.S. pushed on with a number of important scores early on from the impressive Evan Murray, Alex Devin and Kyle Woods. The workrate of Tadhg Martyn also steadied the ship at important junctures.
Gaelscoil Thúlach na nÓg did put it up to Slane with a number of very impressive performances. They had pace and strength but just lacked a little with the final ball towards goal. The game was tough but played in a very sporting manner.
Slane now play their final game next Tuesday against Scoil Éanna, Navan in the search of a semi final place.
