Donegal and Mayo have served up a couple of cracking matches over the years, but the senior footballers will only be watching on Sunday 22nd November as the counties turn to the small ball to continue the grudge. The Nicky Rackard Cup Final takes place at 1.30pm in Croke Park and a couple of our own will be involved.
Mr. Luke White, who hails from Wexford (but prefers Donegal), plays in goal and has been genuinely instrumental in helping the county reach the final. Mr. White reckons he'll be busy on Sunday given that Mayo are firm favourites, but he's hoping to summon the spirit of Rackard, another Wexford legend, in pursuit of victory. Also in the team is CCS past-pupil and Carn stalwart, Padraig Doherty. If you're going to get past Mr. White, you'll have to get past Mr. Doherty first...
Everyone at CCS would like to wish them both a successful (and safe) Sunday in Croker. Bring it home, lads...Dún na nGall Abú!!

The senior girls team were beaten by a stronger, older Dean Maguire team (Co. Tyrone) on Tuesday, 24th September in Owenbeg. The girls put in a great display, but unfortunately it wasn't our day and Dean Maguire came away as eventual winners.
The U16 girls narrowly lost to Scoil Mhuire Buncrana on Friday, 27th September - 5-19 - 6-14. It was clearly a serious spectacle! That's a 2-point defeat out of 44 scores on the day. The u16 dusted themselves off to resoundingly beat rivals Moville CC on Tuesady, 15th October - 10-11 to 1-4. All the girls played fantastic football from start to finish. The u16s then played Thornhill College on Friday, 18th October. Despite the quick turnaround, the girls played some lovely football in a well-contested game. The first half was very tight with only one point between the teams. But as the 2nd half progressed, CCS got some great scores on the board. Credit must go to all 30 CCS girls who came away eventual winners 8-13 to 7-3.
