Vice-principal, Mrs Siobhán Bradley congratulates the three Ulster All-Stars

Friday evening seen a first for St Paul’s, when three of our Senior Ladies football team received Ulster All-Star Awards. Louise Kenny, Aimee Mackin and Blaithin Mackin are without doubt exceptionally talented at sport.

Louise, who was part of the senior Armagh ladies panel last year that won an Ulster title, is now in receipt of her second Ulster Schools All-Star Award. Anyone who knows Louise will know how modest she is about her talent, but also how dedicated she is to her sporting commitments. She has always found the balance between her work in school, her love of sport and even manages to hold down a part time job.

Aimee Mackin is no longer just known in South Armagh for her Gaelic and Soccer skills, she has reached worldwide status by travelling with the Northern Ireland soccer squad to compete in the European championships. This is her third Ulster Schools All Star and rightly so, in fact Mr John Rafferty once commented that “Aimee Mackin was the best forward our school had seen bar none.”

This is the first Ulster Schools All-Star, which Blaithin Mackin has received however, we are pretty sure it will not be her last. She herself is also representing county and country in Gaelic football and soccer respectively. Blaithin has the pleasure of youth on her side, and feel that she has not yet reached her full potential.

We, at St Paul’s, are very proud of their many achievements with school, their clubs, county and also their country. We look forward to congratulating them on their future achievements, as no doubt there will be many.
