Fossa National School East Kerry Football Champions 2015

Fossa School were crowned East Kerry (6 to 8 Teacher )Champions after a 16 year wait. They defeated Faha, Rathmore and Kilcummin on their  way to winning the cup. Captain Rian Colleran was presented with the Ulster Bank Perpetual trophy (Cumann na mBunscoil East Kerry).

They then defeated Cullina School, Beaufort in the county semi-final. This was a very close encounter and a last gasp goal for Fossa sealed victory.  The county final took place in Abbeydorney on Wednesday November 4th against Duagh.  Fossa started poorly and conceded three early goals which left them 11 points down at half time. Fossa showed great fighting spirit in the second half and reduced the deficit to two points with three well worked goals. Unfortunately time was against them and despite sustained attacks in the end they couldn’t secure the goal needed for victory. Huge thanks to all the panellists who trained diligently since the start of the year and to sixth class teacher Mr Corcoran for training and motivating them.
