On Saturday 8th February, two teams of OS pupils went head to head at St John’s Beaumont Preparatory School to celebrate the shared tradition of Jesuit education that binds the schools together. SJB OS took on SMH OS in a match that surpassed all expectations in its skill, physicality and the spirit in which it was played. After 80 minutes, only a single score separated the sides, making SMH the inaugural winners of the Dermot Gogarty Memorial Cup with a final score of 28-35. A span of two decades of OS were represented on the field and over 100 OS came along to support, making this a truly special event. Huge thanks to Giles Delaney, Patrick Hennessy and Susann Laughton for their generosity in helping to host this event at St John’s and we look forward to next year’s fixture!
