Sam Maguire visits St. Declan’s

We had the privilege of having Liam O’Neill the president of the GAA visit our school this week with the Sam Maguire cup. The cup was brought around all the classes and Liam spoke to the children about the importance of taking part in the GAA sports-football, camogie, hurling, ladies football, rounders and handball.. The children were very impressed as were some of the teachers !! We have a very strong sporting tradition in St. Declan’s with a lot of our children taking part in after school sport. Our fifth and sixth classes treated Liam to the song “A sky full of stars” by Coldplay. We would like to express a special thanks to Liam for coming to our school. We will be all glued to the match on Sunday- Will Kerry or Donegal bring the Sam Maguire home ???
