IRFU March 22: Sixth class pupils attended a mixed tag rugby blitz on March 22 hosted by the IRFU in Garryowen RFC.  Our school played in a group with three other Limerick schools and great fun was had by all as they were coached through the games by various IRFU coaches.  Lunches were provided by Aldi.  It was a very enjoyable event with the emphasis on participation and fun.

FAI Soccer March 24: A total number of thirty eight boys and girls from Scoil Mhuire Murroe participated in the FAI Primary 5-a- side competition on Friday March 24th 2017.  The event took place on the all-weather pitches in Sean Coill, Parteen.  It was a little chilly but there was beautiful sunshine throughout and it was dry too.  Children from Fourth, Fifth and Sixth classes participated.  There were three boys’ teams and two girls’ teams.  The children represented the school really well and played fairly and sportingly in each match.  They enjoyed the day very much.
