Cumann na mBunscol. On Thursday past the 8th 5 pupils from Deravoy NS played in the Ulster end of Cumann na mBunscol in Belfast, Fiona Flood played in the U13 girls Singles, Megan Mc Clave & Niamh Kelly played in the U13 Girls Doubles and Luke Mc Kenna & Donnacha Mc Cluskey played in the U11 boys Doubles, first up were the boys were they played Donegal & Armagh, they dispatched of both teams but the sterner test was to come in Tyrone, it was a clinker of a game and was nip & tuck throughout, Tyrone won the first 11-10, and in the second game the Deravoy boys were leading 8-3 and were pushing Tyrone all the way but Tyrone battle back to win 11-10 again, all watching the game said the standard was terrific and either team would have been worthy winners, then the boys went on to secure 2nd place in the competition by beating Cavan 11-8, 11-6, then a quick move to a new venue the girls took centre stage, the U13 doubles of Megan Mc Clave & Niamh Kelly played and secured 3rd place over all only to tipped by Donegal for 2nd even though the girls beat Donegal but it was the total of points that determined their final position, then Fiona Flood played in the girls U13 single where she came out on top of the 5 counties being represented to take gold, one by one the all fell for Fiona as she stormed her way to the All Ireland series of the competition in Kingscourt on Saturday the 24th of February, good luck to Fiona and I am sure plenty will travel to support you on the day and very well done to all who took part and very near reached Kingscourt also, a big thank you to Gene Flood & Brian Mc Kenna (O) who traveled to Belfast with the young competitors, because any success for anything must have the backing of parents to succeed, well done to one and all on the day.
