History made in Laois secondary school as first ever girls soccer team gets off to winning start

History was made at a Laois secondary school last week as a girls team competed in their first ever soccer match.

Dunamase College Minor Girls soccer team took on Edmund Rice College Castleknock last Friday.

In a fantastic encounter, the Portlaoise school emerged on the winning side to make the perfect start.

Meanwhile, basketball at Dunamase College kicked off with two fantastic wins for the U-16 and U-19 boys teams last Wednesday.

Both teams overcame Coláiste Cill Dara in their first game of the year with some superb talent and resilience displayed.

Well done to all!
