Ms Kiely’s Homecoming Video
Ms Kiely is the new European K1 Kickboxing Champion. There was great excitement in the school as we welcomed home our new champion on Wednesday 30th November. The school held a truly well deserved and hard earned welcome home for our heroic European Champion in the presence of staff, pupils and parents. Ms Kiely fought five rounds in the bruising stand-up combat sport against Malta’s Celeste Galea and won via a split decision. She showed amazing skill, focus and determination on the night. We are extremely proud of her achievement and she is a great ambassador for St Mary’s NS.
Ms Kiely has had a fantastic year and ended up with the massive achievement of winning a European Title and a making history for the Hub Martial Arts by being the first ever female to bring home a European title to club and county. Trained by Paul O’Brien, Ms Kiely intends on fighting for a World Title in the not too distant future. I think you will all agree that she is a fantastic role model for our children and we wish her every success in the future. Hopefully some day, she will return to us with a World Belt. We are super proud of you Ms Kiely. Keep it up.
