Irish seminary to host European soccer tournament
Comment Email Print
¬†St Patrick's College Maynooth will host the 19th European Seminary Soccer Tournament from 28 ≠ 30 March 2003. Over 200 seminarians from seven countries will take part in this tournament. Teams will travel to Maynooth from Poland, Slovenia, Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, England and from within Ireland. In recent years the tournament has been held in Durham, Paris and last year was held in Toulon. Over the past few years the number of teams taking part has increased and there has been a lot of interest in the tournament from the seminaries in Eastern European Countries. Two Polish teams have already shown an interest in hosting next year's tournament. Chris O'Donnell, captain of the Maynooth team last year, said: "Taking part in this tournament gives us the opportunity to meet with others who are preparing for priesthood and to experience different cultures. It is wonderful that Maynooth has been given the opportunity to host the tournament and welcome fellow seminarians from all over Europe." Although this is the 19th tournament, Maynooth has only been taking part since 1997 but in that time it has won the tournament four times. Last year's winners were a seminary from Poland.
