Double All Ireland Success for

Holy Family Senior School

No doubt inspired by the county’s senior and U-21 hurling teams’ success last year, Holy Family Senior School has just achieved it’s own set of All-Ireland crowns. The Ennis school took home two national titles as well as finishing runners up in the two other categories at the finals of the National Sportshall Athletics Championships. These national finals were held last week in the Athlone Institute of Technology Sports Arena. Fifteen counties participated in the event on the day.


The victorious school was selected to represent the county following the intense county finals between schools from Clare that participated in the competition run by Clare Sports Partnership. At the county finals, Holy Family won the third and fourth class boys and girls sections as well as the fifth and sixth class boys and girls sections. Thus they proved triumphant in an unprecedented clean sweep of all categories.


           Sportshall Athletics is a unique programme designed to combine running and field events. Each child is allowed to compete in a maximum of two running and two field events with each team consisting of a maximum of fifteen athletes. The running events consisted of a number of different distance relays while the field events consisted of javelin, long jump, triple jump, vertical jump, speed bounce and chest push.


The pupils put in intensive practice leading up to the National Finals. This was a huge achievement for any one school to have four teams participating in the National Finals. On the day, Holy Family represented Clare and was up against stiff opposition. After the days competition, when the results were announced third and fourth class boys and girls finished runners up in the country. While the fifth and sixth class girls were crowned All Ireland Sportshall Champions. To add to that, fifth and sixth class boys were also crowned All Ireland Sportshall Champions. Seán O' Neill and Stephen Mc Namara,  co-ordinating teachers at the School said 'We are absolutely thrilled with this result. All the effort, dedication and hard work put in by the children really paid off. We have some really talented athletes in the school and our students excel in this area. It was unbelievable to bring back two national titles to the school and to Co Clare.  Incredibly, this is as well as bringing back two 2nd place trophies in two other sections. The children will remember this forever'.


Mrs Sarah Barnes Principal commented that the competition from the other schools in Co Clare was very stiff as was the competition from the 14 other counties in Athone. She said “This was a team effort on behalf of all the teachers, pupils and trainers from Clare Sports Partnership who all recognised the innate talent we have in our school. We are so proud of all our 55 students who participated on the day”.

Holy Family Senior School offers a wide range of sports including GAA, Basketball, Athletics, Swimming and golf and is fortunate enough to have a staff of talented sports people to encourage and train the pupils.


The school held a reception in their hall on Thursday 3rd April and each team were presented with their medals. John Sweeney from Clare Sports Partnership was on hand to make the presentations with Patrick Kelly Clare All Irealnd Winning Goalkeeper . Representing Clare Sports Partnership was Michael Mc Namara and representing the BOM of Holy Family Senior School was Mary Howard (Ennis Town Councillor). Also attending was representatives from Clare Athletics who were delighted with the success for the school.
