FIH Hockey Nations Cup final
Congratulations to past pupils Shane O'Donoghue (HSD, 2008-2011) and Conor Empey (HSD, 2011-17) who represented Ireland in the inaugural FIH Nations Cup competition which was staged in South Africa. The former scored three goals in three matches as Ireland defeated France (2-0), Pakistan (3-1) and South Africa (1-0) in the group stages. The semi-final fixture resulted in a victory against Malaysia (3-0) before Ireland narrowly lost the final match against South Africa (3-4) in which Shane O'Donoghue scored a further two goals. We wish our past pupils every success as they compete for further honours at international level.
