Manning Cup 2019

Well done to all the boys and girls that represented the school at this year's Manning Cup athletics event that took place in Loughrea's Athletic Grounds in Bushfield on Thursday, May 9th. 

The event was very well organised with all the girls and boys from Kilrickle N.S. performing with distinction. 

The school carried out trials the week before the event to choose which students would participate in each event category and it was very obvious from the beginning that our participation in the Daily Mile initiative this year really paid dividend to the children's fitness. 

On the evening the the boys took home third spot in the overall boys competition while the girls narrowly missed out third position in their category coming fourth overall out of all the participating schools. 

There were a number of stand out performances however on the night from individual boys and girls from the school and in the relay races our good teamwork was noticeable. 

Well done to all involved. Kilrickle AbĂș!!!
