Sam Maguire Visit


We had a very special treat on Friday 19th October when the Sam Maguire paid a visit to our school with Brian Howard from the Dublin Senior football team. The children and the staff enthusiastically celebrated Dublin's All-Ireland win. Brian Howard chatted with the children about his career in GAA and encouraged them to get involved in sport and to learn as much as they can from their parents, teachers and coaches. The children gave a resounding rendition of  Dublin's Fair City. Well Done to Dublin the four-in-a-row All-Ireland Champions! COYBIB!

To celebrate the launch of their new jersey, Dublin GAA ran an art competition among schools in Dublin. On the 12th October 2018 our school was one of three lucky schools that were visited by three Dublin players. Dean Rock, Michael Daragh Macauley and Ciarán Kilkenny visited the first class boys and girls to present the winners with their own brand new jersey. It was great fun and we were delighted to meet our All-Ireland champion heroes with the Sam Maguire!
