Girls Under 12’s AIJS Hockey Tournament

By | News, Sport
On Wednesday 17th November a squad of 12 of our girls travelled to Mount Anville School in Dublin to participate in the annual Under 12's 8-aside hockey tournament. There were more than 22 teams participating, divided into 5 groups of 4 or 5 teams. Headfort was drawn with St Gerard's, St Killian's and Notre Dame. The first tie with St Gerard's was tough, but the girls were determined to win and scored a goal to which the opposition failed to respond. Against St Killian's we spent most of the match around their circle and numerous shots on goals went tantalizingly...

The Boyne Way

By | News, Sport
The second expedition of the "Explore Meath Club" took place on Wednesday 14th November. I decided we would attempt to walk from Navan to Slane along the River Boyne. Although 17kms was a bit ambitious with a 2.00 pm start and darkness falling so early, we decided to see how far we would get - and file away the experience for future expeditions. A late start at Navan Ramparts due to my own car breaking down half way to the starting point did not deter the children. As usual they could not contain their energy and took off like hares...

Explore Meath Club

By | Sport

  On 22nd October the “Explore Meath Club” made its inaugural outing to Girley Bog at Drewstown. Despite a poor forecast, the sun shone almost the whole afternoon and the showers that did fall felt quite pleasant. The small but very game group were not content with the 6 km circuit (despite a fair amount of running) and wanted to be taken further, and so, at 4 pm after a quick look at the local map, we decided to make a foray across the bog to the village of Ethelstown. Half way there we came across what appeared to be…
