Our Lady’s Secondary School added to their impressive tally of All Stars at Ulster Schools’ level when it was announced that Transition Year student Jason Irwin was selected on the Queen’s University Future Star All Star team for 2017. These awards recognise players competing for their schools within all Danske Bank Ulster Schools’ competitions at U/16 level and were selected after a series of trials games. The scheme, initiated by the Queen’s University GAA Academy is a wonderful opportunity to recognise some of the rising stars in our games and it is the first time in the short history of the scheme that Our Lady’s have had a representative on the team. Jason was selected by the school to attend an initial trial in Cookstown that was attended by a large number of players from across the province. Jason ‘s high fielding, direct running and eye for a score impressed the selectors present to be invited back to the second trial that was held in the Dub Arena, Queen’s University on Monday December 4th. Once again Jason put in a commanding performance that was characterised by an extremely high work rate and a series of outstanding scores. There was great excitement and pride in the school when it was announced that Jason was selected on the Queen’s University Future Star All Star Team for 2017. Jason a key member of the schools Senior Boys GAA team plays his club football with Oram Sarsfields and is the son of Ambrose and the late Moira Irwin. Speaking at the school during the week Principal Mr. Eddie Kelly congratulated Jason on his award. ‘Jason is a most deserving and worthy recipient of this award, he is an extremely talented and hardworking player who has set high standards for himself and who also demands high standards of those around him. He is a fantastic addition to our school community and is an excellent role model for his peers and for the younger students in the school. I have no doubt that with continued hard work and application that Jason has a great future ahead of him in Gaelic Games for school, club and county’.
