Ruairi Campbell- "GAA Future Star"

14th Dec 2018

Over the past couple of weeks while Tracking tests were being completed, the GAA life in the College continued regardless.  Our u14s won the McDevitt Ulster Schools Cup at Owenbeg by a single point from Milford Loreto School.  While they were preparing for this final Ruairi and Liam Cushnahan were selected by Mr Thornton to attend the Ulster Schools/QUB Danske Bank GAA Future Stars trials for the best Year 12 GAA footballers in Ulster.

Ruairi and Liam played exceptionally well in their 2 thirds of 22 minutes at MUSA with schools from the West.  Ruairi was selected from this trial of over 45 players to attend QUB's Dub Arena for the final trial of 36 players.  He was outstanding on a windy and rain-swept Wednesday evening under the lights and capped a wonderful performance with a lobbed goal over the opponent's keeper.

We are all so proud of this first GAA Future Star award for the College and of Ruairi.
