Corn 2021

Corn GAA Final and Presentation

On Tuesday 22nd of June, the final of the Corn GAA Football Tournament was played.

The Corn tournament involved teams from 6th class playing against each other over the last month.

The top two teams after the group stage games were Carlow and Waterford.

The Corn Final pitted these two teams against each other. The final turned out to be a fantastic match with the result in the balance right up to the last few minutes.

The crowd in attendance was treated to an excellent game with skill, teamwork, and passion in abundance. 

In the end, it was the Carlow team including the wily management duo of Mr. Horgan and Ms. Collins that won the game.

The Waterford team managed by Mrs Canty and Mr O’Callaghan had to settle for 2nd place. However, the Waterford team can be very proud of their performance.

After the final, the Corn Cup was presented by Mr Horgan to the talented captain of the Carlow team Jerry O’Leary.

Well done to Mr. O’Meara for his organisation of the tournament and all staff who assisted in the running of the tournament over the last month.

Please see the gallery below for some pictures from a great day.
