The ‘C’ Section for large schools was claimed by St. Michael’s NS, Trim in a hugely entertaining series of games. The winners had a ding dong battle in the final game of the day with third place finishers St. Patrick’s NS, Castlebar to take top spot 5-4. The Meath lads battled from 3-1 down to claim the victory. St. Michael’s are the third School to win gold at this level following success in 2005 for Rathbeggan in the ‘B’ Section and most recently for Athboy’s O’Growney’s NS in 2012 also in the ‘B’ Section. St. Michael’s made history by becoming the first Meath School to win a National title for the second time, as  much to the delight of Eoin Joyce and Martin Costello.

Silver medallists St. Columba’s kicked off proceedings with a 5-2 win over Castlebar’s St. Patrick’s BNS. A hat-trick from inform Jaze Kabia and two from Conor Russell gave the Cork side a wonderful start. Mayo’s scorers were Jason Haigh and Liam Whyte.

 The second game produced twelve goals with Meath’s St. Michael’s finding their form early on. Goals from Oisin Devlin (6), Cian Lee (1), Luke Walsh Byrne (1), Paraic Costelloe (1) and Aaron Lynch (1) could not be equalled by the Donegal outfit as Aaron McDaid and Matthew Mulhalland netted for Scoil Iosagain.

 St. Michael’s produced another wonderful performance to take the points off St. Columba’s. Oisin Devlin (1), Luke Walsh Byrne (1) and Aaron Lynch (2) added to their goal tally while Rory Doyle (1) and Jaze Kabia (1) registered for Cork.

 St. Patrick’s of Castlebar claimed a 3-2 result against the Ulster side Scoil Iosagain. Dylan Felle (1), Liam Whyte (1) and Jason Haigh (1) were the goal scorers for Mayo as Aaron McDaid (1) and Matthew Doherty (1) got on the score sheet for Donegal.

 The penultimate game in this section produced a wonderful display from St. Columba’s against a tired Scoil Iosagain. Evan Donlon (1), Conor Russell (1), Joe O’Connell (1) and a hat-trick from Rory Doyle were even to see of the Buncrana boys.The last game saw St. Michael’s claim two valuable points as they came out 5-4 victors over a gallant Castlebar outfit. A hat-trick from Oisin Devlin and goals from Luke Walsh Byrne and Luke Mahon outclassed the hat-trick from Liam Whyte and Brian Walsh (1) to take top spot.It was fitting that Oisin Devlin was named as Player of the Tournament following an excellent outing for the Trim youngster.
