Before Christmas, we welcomed back our past students who were on the victorious All Ireland winning Galway Senior Camogie panel last September, Noreen Coen, Lorraine Ryan and Leah Burke. Unfortunately Leanne Freaney was not able to join us on the day.
Ms. Mary Forde was also invited and their coaches from their time here in PCA joined them on stage Ms. Carr and Mr. Mc Gillicuddy along with Mr. Moore.
We are very proud of their achievements and we were delighted to recognise them. All the camogie girls of the school were delighted to get a group picture with the girls after.
