Camogie: Huge congratulations to our senior camogie team who were victorious in the senior a Dublin camogie championship final on Friday last against Mount Sackville on a score line of 2-08 to 0-7 points. This was a fantastic victory for this group who lost out in last year’s final against Fridays opposition. This is one of the most talented groups of camogie players we have had in the school and the 6th years will leave having won the minor, junior and senior camogie championships over their 6 years in St Josephs which is a fantastic achievement.3c797d8d-7107-4435-bca0-bc751dba0a1a.JPG
