Last week, 24 of the school’s pupils travelled to BRA for the Ulster schools’ event.

In the junior section many Carrickfergus GS players placed very well and Lucas Magill and Adam Weir managed to prevail and gain first place to win that category.

The school’s seniors also performed very well and after a gruelling seven rounds, Alex Haggan and Evan McKeown came out on top to become the 2019 Ulster Schools’ Pairs champions.
