Futsol Champions

The annual Futsol blitz for 3rd and 4th class was held on Monday 5th December in Roscommon Town. Teams from all over the county participated.


The Cloonakilla girls played some lovely football and ended up beating Ballybay 1-0 in the semi-final. They were very unlucky in the final losing on a score line of 2-1 to Summerhill.


Next up was the boys’ competition. Both teams played brilliantly and we were represented by one team in the semi-final. Cloonakilla started very strongly and scored some early goals to set up a final with Cornafulla. The final proved to be very exciting and Cloonakilla were thrilled to win the match 3-1. It was a great achievement.


It was a very enjoyable day for all. Well done to all the boys and girls who played in the blitz. The medal presented was held after the carol service.

St Vincent de Paul Christmas Food Appeal


img_6266 img_6267 img_6268 img_6271 img_6272This year Cloonakilla N.S supported the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Food Appeal. The families in our school were extremely generous and donated lots of items – on Monday evening we dropped off countless bags and boxes of food and goodies to St Vincent de Paul!!! In the images below you can see the proud Green School Committee members pictured with all of the items that were donated. We decided to support this appeal as we are currently working towards obtaining our 6th Green Schools Flag. The theme for this year is Global Citizenship – Litter and Waste.


Thank you to everybody who contributed to this appeal.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas,
