In Pictures: Scoil Chriost Ri Awards and Stradbally school honours All-Ireland winners

Our photographer Julie Anne Miller was in Scoil Chriost Ri recently for their annual awards evening.

Students were rewarded for their hard work throughout the year with a series of awards.

Meanwhile, members of the All-Ireland winning Scoil Chriost Ri senior football team visited their local school last week.

Sarah Larkin, Orla Hennessy, Jenny Murphy and Alice Dunne returned to a heroes welcome in St Colman’s National School in Stradbally.

The last time Scoil Chriost Ri won an All-Ireland was in 1988 and current St Colman’s teacher Caroline O’Donnell (nee Drennan) was on that team.

The girls went around to the classes and showed the kids the Leinster and All-Ireland Senior cups and their All-Ireland medals.

All four girls had won Cumann na mBunscol titles with St Colman’s while Sarah and Orla also won in the Mini 7s and played in Croke Park on All Ireland final days.

They congratulated Anna Murphy who has recently been picked to represent Stradbally in Croke Park too.

At the Scoil Chriost Ri Awards, Alice Dunne was named Senior Player of the Year while Sarah Larkin won the U-16 accolade.
