Today we were fortunate enough to have a visit from David Byrne a Dublin GAA player and the most treasured Sam Maguire Cup.

There was great excitement around the school. Davy talked about how the Dublin v Mayo game was a close match, but in the end the Dublin players put in a huge effort and won the Sam Maguire.

Davy told us that the Sam Maguire was 80 years old and that a family from Skerries Harps donated some silver towards making the precious cup!

Dublin worked hard and now they’re bringing the Sam Maguire to other schools across the county so everyone can see it!
