On Friday, the 13th of November, all of Holmpatrick N.S was excited to get a visit from Dean Rock a member of the All Ireland winning Dublin team and the famous Sam Maguire cup. All the children were eager to ask questions and the assembled audience listened attentively. Dean answered as many as he could and he told us how to become a GAA player: the training, the preparation and the dedication of the team. We took lots of photos of the whole school with the shiny cup. When the Sam Maguire left, all the children and teachers went smiling back to their classrooms with a card possessing all of the Dublin’s team signatures. We hope to see the cup again next year!!! Up the Dubs!!! 🙂
