Fighting Irish senior football players (in green and white) fight for possession against the Donnacona Diables. The Irish defeated the Diables 41-22 in a battle on the Plains of Abraham. 

The smell of hot dogs was already wafting through the air on Sunday morning as the St. Patrick’s High School Fighting Irish junior football team prepared to take on École Sécondaire Mont-Saint-Sacrement as part of the traditional Fighting Irish fall tailgate. The seniors played later that afternoon against the Diables from École Sécondaire de Donnacona.
