Sam comes to visit!

Sam Maguire visits local schools, accompanied by Con O'Callaghan, Paul Mannion and Páraic McDonald


There was great excitement in a number of local schools this week, when the Sam Maguire Cup came to visit, accompanied by Dublin Players Con O'Callaghan and Paul Mannion, along with Kilmacud Crokes' Paraic McDonald. Con and Paul posed for photos and answered lots of students' enthusiastic questions. The players explained to their enthralled audiences that in order to achieve success with their clubs and with Dublin they trained hard, practiced their skills all the time, listened carefully and attentively to their coaches, ate healthily and  get plenty of sleep.

Among the schools visited were Carysfort National School, Holly Park, Oatlands Primary School, Our Lady's Grove, Saint Mary's Booterstown, Saint Laurences, Mount Anville and Saint Raphaelas.
