During each school year Scoil Mhuire girls compete in the Meath, North Leinster, Leinster and National Cross Country, and Track & Field Championships. Every year girls do very well and are always successful in taking home medals for their individual team events. This year was no exception with girls taking home Gold, Silver and Bronze in both the Schools Cross Country and the Track & Field Championships.

Four girls qualified for the All Irelands’ School Track & Field Championships for the Long Jump, High Jump and Hammer throw which was held in Tullamore. E. Thompson was in the Inter High Jump. J. Nugent and J. Gonsalves both competed in the Junior Long Jump in their own categories. S. Daly competed in the Senior Hammer. All four girls had a great day and represented their school with pride. This was a great achievement as they had competed against top athletes in the Leinster Championships to qualify for the All Irelands’.
