Commiserations to the boys of Rhode National school who were beaten by Bracknagh in front of a massive crowd of supporters in St Brigids GAA Field (Croghan) last Wednesday. The 5 point defeat did not justify the game as the young boys from Rhode never gave up and have to be commended for their excellent performance, Much thanks to the parents and teachers who put in all the hard work to make sure our school teams compete and enjoy themselves.
