Soccer in St Patrick’s De La Salle

Our school enters the FAI Primary 5s every year. This is a 5-a-side competition which is open to boys and girls from 4th, 5th and 6th class, and puts emphasis on fun and inclusivity. The De La Salle school generally enters two teams and the event takes place in Thomastown FC. This is always a thoroughly enjoyable day – and one where we have enjoyed great success in the past.

The blitz day format is coordinated at local level with the assistance of a network of FAI Development Officers and local primary school teachers. These personnel co-ordinate events at county level with qualifying schools progressing to regional, provincial and National Finals.
