First Year students at St. Mary's Diocesan School have raised €832 for Down Syndrome Louth/Meath by running a five-a-side Knockout Futsal tournament. 

104 first years - 13 teams of 8 players took part in the tournament which started back in November. 

The tournament was organised by teacher Mr Hobbs and ably assisted by some of the 6th Year prefects, Oisin Murphy, Max Russell, Alan Bowden (Assistant Referees), David O'Brien and Ryan Jones (Treasurers and crowd control).  

The charity to beneit, nominated by Callum Byrne in 1st year, was Down Syndrome Ireland Louth/Meath Division.  

Each player paid €2 to take part, then any first years who wanted to come and watch the games paid €1 entry for that game. The Final took place at lunchtime on Thursday 5th May, with Maxol United winning 5-3 against Rakim FC.
