Laois secondary school unveil new jerseys ahead of All-Ireland volleyball encounters

Scoil Chriost Ri Volleyball (1)

A Laois secondary school has unveiled a new set of jerseys ahead of a big week of volleyball next week.

Scoil Chriost Ri only started playing volleyball competitively in 2017 with Mr O’Brien as head coach.

The first year brought silverware after winning the first year Spikeball All Ireland.

Next week the school will play in the all Ireland volleyball qualifiers in Senior B, Junior B and Junior C after qualifying from the midlands regional competitions.

The volleyball is now coached by Mr McEvoy and recently retired teacher Mr Heveran.

Both teams required new jerseys and Martleys bus company in Portlaoise kindly offered to sponsor both sets for the girls.

DS Sports designed the jerseys and got them made in time for the All Ireland’s next week which is brilliant.

The action begins on Tuesday with the Senior B All Ireland semi final away to Ballinasloe, Ardscoil Mhuire and Grange Community College Dublin.

On Wednesday December 7, the U-16 C All-Ireland quarter finals are on in Scoil Chriost Ri where they will be up against St Leo’s, Tyndal College Carlow and Coachford College Cork.

On Thursday December 8, Scoil Chriost Ri are playing away in Alsaa, Swords, in the U-16 All Ireland B semi final against St Louis SS Dundalk, Colaiste Mhuire Mathair Galway City and Sutton Park School Dublin.

Best of luck to all!
