On Friday 27th November, Holy Cross had some very special visitors. Darren Egan, G.P.O. with Naomh Olaf G.A.A. club and David Byrne, Dublin Senior Footballer and Naomh Olaf Senior Footballer accompanied the Sam Maguire trophy to Holy Cross.
This is the third time in five years that Dublin have won the All Ireland Senior Football Championship. There was great excitment when David entered the halla with Sam! Mr MacMathúna led the entire school in a rendition of Molly Malone.
After this children from 2nd to 6th class got the opportunity to ask David Byrne some questions about being an inter county footballer.
Next, some children from the Holy Cross school football team took part in a point kicking competition. We even challenged David to show us some of his kicking skills!
Many thanks to David and Darren and Naomh Olaf G.A.A. Club for taking the time to bring SAM to Holy Cross!
