School Sports a great success

Despite a forecast of rain, the annual school sports held on the 24th April, turned out to be a lovely sunny evening.  MC, Ger Healy, kicked off the evening at 6 p.m. sharp and efficiently went through all the races from Tiny Tots to Over 12’s.  There were 100 metre sprints, 220 metres, 440 metres, relays, long jump, sack race, 3-legged race and tug-of-war so something for everyone!  Gurrane did really well overall and came away with a good few individual medals but also came 1st in the Parish Relay and 1st in the Open Relay so well done to all the athletes who took part.  The final event of the evening was the tug-of-war.  Gurrane made it to the final against Glasheen  Boys National School and amazingly the boys from Glasheen have won this for 30 years in a row so congratulations to them and we look forward to having them back again next year.  We might beat them yet!
