Clongowes boarding school is a special place that provides an all-round education in a dynamic living and learning community. Our facilities are exemplary with every opportunity given to each student to develop, grow and learn in order to fulfil his potential.

Well done St Michael's College, Dublin and thanks for a cracking game today. Best of luck as you progress to the semi finals.

Our boys gave it their all but today was not their day. So proud of all the work the squad and coaches put into training and preparations. Parents, boys, friends and OCs thanks for your unfailing support. Aeterna Non Caduca. #proud
