All-Ireland Senior Soccer Final - Video Highlights (Preview)

The post-match report will have a lot to say about preparation, camaraderie, honest effort, Inishowen generosity and a SUPERB pass-and-move performance from CCS. (And if it's written by Callum Harley, it'll also have some hilarious one-liners...) There'll be extended highlights available by the long weekend. For the time-being, enjoy the 5-minute digest of another great day for sport in Carndonagh Community School. Congrats once again to Mr. Cavanagh and his All-Ireland Champions.

All Ireland Senior Soccer Squad 2018

The senior soccer class of 2018 will seek to summon the spirit of 2016 when they take to the Whitehall pitch on Wednesday. The lads have brushed aside all-comers until now, but they know that nothing can be taken for granted as the final hurdle nears. Mr. Martin Cavanagh knows the score at this stage, having guided the seniors to glory two years ago. So, once again, nothing has been left to chance. On Tuesday, all squad members reported to the Ballyliffin Lodge for a therapeutic hour in the Spa complex. With legs relaxed, the boys moved to the dining room for dinner. It was back to work after that, with Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan taking charge of a brief but hugely informative training session. But it was his post-training speech that will no doubt ring loudest in the ears of the current squad. "Tomorrow is about true camaraderie. School football...there's nothing else like it in the game...at ANY level. This is as good as it gets. Don't let it pass you by." And with that, there is only one more word to be said...Ready!

Mr. Cavanagh, the senior soccer squad and travelling fans would like to offer a huge thanks to Doherty Centra (Muff), The Ballyliffin Lodge and Spa, Inishowen Tours (Noel Doherty) and, once again, Ollie Horgan for their invaluable support in the lead-up to the All-Ireland Final.

To mark a unique occasion for CCS - two senior teams (GAA & soccer) in All-Ireland semi-finals in the same year - Brennans Pharmacy have donated two First Aid kits. While we certainly hope that they won't be needed, CCS would like to thank Michael Mullan and the staff at Brennans for their generous contribution to both squads.
