A Memory in the Making

May 19, 2022
It was an overcast, wet day and down at the Ursulines’ hockey pitch, the OLOL hockey team were practicing their passes. The spectators, their friends and classmates, had come a long way to see these matches and they were full of raucous excitement. And so, the games commenced. The players left it all on the pitch; their blood, sweat and tears, and they gained results. OLOL triumphed again and again; only losing one match to the skilful team of Eglantine. In the end, they prevailed, and were the winning team. The spectators cheered until their throats went raw, and never stopped the endless stream of support. The players were awarded with medals, presented by the Taoiseach Mr Micheal Martin, and the supporters received a great memory to cherish, always. The Leana Martin Hockey Blitz May 2022 will never be forgotten in Our Lady of Lourdes.
