International Sports Success for CBS Students

Two of our students have been in the headlines of late, representing Ireland on the International Stage in both soccer and rugby. Oisin Hand (4th Year) captained the Irish U16 Football team in their Victory Shield Tournament in Tralee; the team took 2nd place overall behind the victors Northern Ireland. Oisin plays with top team Shamrock Rovers and the team is managed by former league of Ireland star Paul Osam.

While over in Treviso in Northern Italy, Jamie Osborne (5th Year) featured at full-back on the Ireland u18 Youths team who defeated their Italian hosts 31-12 in which 19 players made their International debuts. Jamie has been a stalwart of both Naas RFC Club and CBS school teams in recent years.

We wish both young men the very best in their pursuit of further international honours.
