Hard luck yet well done to former students Zac Elbouzedi and JJ Lunney who represented Ireland at the Under 17 European Championships last week. Unfortunately Ireland did not qualify for semi-finals having drew with Holland while suffering defeats to Italy 2-0 and England 1-0. Nevertheless great to see both lads still representing their country
