Hard luck to the 1st year soccer team who were beaten by a hungrier Colaise Phadraig CBS Lucan who came out on top 3-1. Sweet revenge for the Lucan boys reversing a 5-2 defeat we inflicted on them earlier in our run to Leinster Cup success. We wish them every success in their Dublin Metro League final and the Leinster Chamions league final.
