PREVIEW | Dublin Post Primary Schools Futsal showdown




Dublin Post Primary Schools Futsal Finals take place next week

Saturday, November 3, 2018

Following the completion of ten regional qualifiers in the First Year futsal programme, the schools have been whittled down to the top ten in the County.

It promises to be an exciting and fun filled conclusion to this year’s qualifiers with some top class players involved with a total of 240 students participating.


Larkin Community College and St. Mac Dara’s Community College are in the unique situation with both their girls and boys teams involved over the two days. The girls will kick off on Tuesday while the boys do battle on Wednesday with the impressive National Indoor Arena, Abbotstown playing host. 


This fantastic event will showcase the talent on display in the girls division with two groups of five involved, with the top team in each group playing off in the grand finale.


Group One will comprise of Loreto Secondary School, Balbriggan, St. Raphaela’s Secondary School, Stillorgan, Our Lady of Mercy College, Beaumont, Kishoge Community College, Lucan and Larkin Community College.


Group Two will see St. Mac Dara’s Community College, Templeogue, Mount Sackville, Mercy College, Inchicore, Woodbrook College and a DCC qualifier to be confirmed.


Last season’s winners Loreto Abbey, Dalkey are out of contention so it will be all to play for as proceedings get underway at 10.30am.


The boy’s qualifiers will take place a day later, which will see a similar two divisions in operation.


Group One will consist of Portmarnock Community School, Oatlands College, Blackrock, Trinity Comprehensive School, Ballymun, St. Mac Dara’s Community College, Templeogue and Larkin Community College.


Group Two will have Coláiste Chilliain, Clondalkin, Kylemore College, Ballyfermot, Riversdale Community College, Synge Street CBS Secondary School and Woodbrook College all paired.


Larkin Community College claimed the title twelve months previously but will this new look team retain their title?


Anticipation is mounting for the students and teachers alike! One qualifier from each of the boys and girls event will be lucky enough to qualify for the Leinster Futsal Finals which are scheduled for Wednesday, November 21 (Girls) and Thursday, November 22 (Boys) in the National Indoor Arena, Abbotstown.


We wish all participating teams the very best of luck.
