When the ‘Drive for Five’ becomes a Reality

John the Baptist Community School has witnessed unprecedented sporting success and history being made over the past number of weeks. What had become known as ‘The Drive for Five’ became a reality when our Junior Camogie Team completed the years success winning their All-Ireland on Friday the 31st of March. The victory brought the total historic number of All-Ireland Titles for John the Baptist Community School in 2017 to Five.

Altogether the School has won:

  1. All-Ireland Senior D Camogie
  2. All-Ireland Junior D Camogie
  3. All-Ireland Senior B Hurling
  4. All-Ireland Senior Ladies A Football
  5. All- Ireland Junior Ladies A Football.

The Trophies are on display this week outside the main office of the school. A wonderful banquet will be held at the end of the month to honour the students and all those involved. We could not be more proud of their achievements.
