There was history made in Portlaoise today as two secondary schools clashed in a competitive game for the first time – and indeed for one of them in was their first ever match.

Portlaoise College came up against Colaiste Dhun Masc, who are just in their second year as a new school.

This was a home game for Portlaoise College and it ended with a victory for them on a scoreline of 6-6 to 2-4.

Dunamase College, in their first ever competitive game battled well, with a number of their players playing Gaelic football competitively for the first time in their lives.

But excellent performances from Odhran Dunphy, Jake Colbert, Fionn McEvoy Mullally and Fionn Abbey saw the home side gain the win.

We look forward to more clashes between the two sides for years to come.
