Sky Sports

Shaun Beirne former professional rugby player for Ireland and Leinster to name but a few teams visited the school last week as part of Sky Academy Programme for 1st year.  12 students had the honour of working with him all day. As well as playing sport with the students and passing on sporting tips he spoke of the determination and commitment they need to get on in life. He spoke of his own illness and the stumbling blocks he faced as a way to motivate students into doing better in school and concentrating on their work and future achievements. They programme will continue in September. Thanks to Mr Kenny for arranging this very inspirational day for this group.
