Mary -Kate wins Gold at the Karate World Championships Congratulations to Mary-Kate Finnegan, 6th class pupil, who won three gold medals and one silver medal at the World Karate Championships in Italy. Mary-Kate trains with the Green Dragon club in Kinlough and Sligo. She assures me she does not practise these moves on her family, rather she attends training up to three nights per week. She is also careful to eat a healthy diet with a lot of protein and carbohydrates. I think we can all agree that Mary-Kate has not only represented herself and her family so well on the international stage but also her club and country. Comhghairdeas Mary-Kate, all in Creevy are very proud of your achievement!
Summer Success for Creevy Pupils
Creevy NS represented at INTO/RESPECT Exhibition GoGames in Croke Park
On the 10 August 2014 Senan took part in the INTO/RESPECT Exhibition GoGames during the GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Semi-Final between Kilkenny and Limerick.
Senan was only one of 3 boys chosen to represent Donegal which highlights his great ability. It was a great honour for our school to have a pupil playing in Croke Park. It was a most enjoyable day which started with a gathering of all the children taking part, their families and their teachers. INTO President Seán McMahon spoke to all the children individually and when speaking to Ms Magee who represented Creevy NS on the day he acknowledged the dedicated effort of all those who encourage the promotion of Gaelic Games in our national schools. We are fortunate to have great support from the local Aodh Ruadh club in assisting with the promotion of Gaelic Games in our school and for this we are most grateful. Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Liam Ó Néill, Chairperson of Cumann na mBunscol as well as the President of the Camogie Association were also in attendance.
It was indeed also a great honour for Aodh Ruadh and a tribute to the tremendous effort put in by those in the club who work tirelessly to develop hurling at under-age level. It was an added interest for the children who enjoyed their annual trip to Croke Park for the semi-final to have the opportunity to watch one of their own players taking part.
Senan was chosen to play in the Kilkenny colours and so he was on the winning side for the day! As you can see from the photographs (most of them taken by the official Sportsfile photographers) Senan played a very significant part for his team which was made up of some of the most talented players from schools in counties Kilkenny, Laois, Monaghan, Offaly, Armagh, Down, Dublin and Galway. We could well have been watching some of the future stars who will grace the field in Croke Park in the years ahead!
Well done Senan on this great achievement!
Farewell to Mr Mc Daid
