Each year, young people throughout the diocese pit their will, strength and skill against one another as they represent their youth club in their efforts to win an award in their chosen activity.

Sunday, March 4 saw young people compete in the Under-15 girls and boys and Under-18 girls and boys five-a-side soccer competition in the Watershed gym, Kilkenny.

The Under-18 male category saw The Swan emerge as winners, and the U-18 female category was won by Goresbridge. The U-15 male category was won by Freshford, while Borris-in-Ossory won the U-15 female division.

The winners of each category will go forward to represent their clubs at national level in June.
