Erin Hamill, a Fifth Year student at Our Lady’s Secondary School, Castleblayney, was the toast of the school in recent days having received her international cap for the Under 17 women’s team this summer. Erin has been a prominent player on basketball teams at Our Lady’s during her time in school and international recognition is a just reward for her hard work and commitment to the sport. Erin is daughter of Brendan and Nuala Hamill from Tullynahinera, Castleblayney and the school and local community extend their congratulations to Erin and her family upon her success.

Erin was part of the Under 17 Women’s International team who were training this summer and was capped in games in July in Tralee against the Scottish under 18 side. She has started the school year in excellent fashion playing major roles in the under 19 girls being 3 from 3 in games this season.

Speaking at the school during the week, Principal Mr. Eddie Kelly congratulated Erin on her latest success “I’m delighted that Erin’s ability, hard work & commitment have been recognised at such an elite level. Erin is an extremely talented player but also displays the necessary dedication and commitment required to perform and succeed at such a high level. She is a most cooperative and unassuming student and is an excellent role model for her peers and the younger students in the school. We wish her every success in her preparations over the coming weeks and months”
