One tree was planted to represent each year group in the school. This ceremony also marked the launch of the Green Flag Campaign in the school.

Hockey

Meanwhile, on Thursday, March 15, almost 50 girls from the Abbey headed to Dublin with Ms Connery, Mr Kissane and Ms Ní Mhaonaigh.

They played three friendly matches in Alexandra College in Miltown, Dublin 6. The girls played with great momentum and displayed a huge potential as they won two out of three of their matches.

After playing three friendly matches they went to the National Hockey Stadium in UCD to watch the Irish men’s hockey team play against Chile in an Olympic Qualifier.

Ireland won 3-0 in a thrilling match, and some of the Abbey girls were lucky enough to get a few autographs. A fantastic day was had by all.
