Pupils celebrate Gaelic football tournament victory.

COVENTRY youngsters are celebrating after triumphing in a Gaelic football tournament for the second consecutive year.

Ss Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School, part of the Romero Catholic Academy, has won the Coventry Catholic Schools Gaelic Football Tournament.

The school, which fielded a team containing players up to the age of 11, took on nine other Coventry sides over the course of the competition, ultimately coming back from a seven point deficit in the final against Christ the King Catholic Primary School to claim victory.

Brendan Harkin, chairman of the Four Masters Gaelic Club, said: "The school had great faith in this team, and expected them to do well, but it is always pleasing to get out there and win.

The diversity within the team is fantastic. Gaelic football does tend to attract a lot of players with an Irish background, but Ss Peter and Paul have a group here with a wide variety of cultures, and it's great to see them being so successful."
