————————————————————————————————–
On Wednesday 21st October, the students of Joey’s Primary and Secondary were in the presence of a trophy that would have many people envious: the Sam Maguire. Carried through a guard of honour by county star and former footballer of the year Michael Darragh MacAuley, the boys of the primary broke out in a chorus of ‘Molly Malone’.

Michael Darragh took some questions from students, including the tongue-in-cheek “who do you think is the best footballer on the Dublin team?”, from our own Darragh Reynolds. (MDMA managed to avoid answering that one!)

After some pictures and autographs, the cup was whisked away. Hopefully Dublin’s current GAA success will continue and it won’t be too long until ‘Sam’ (or even ‘Liam’!) is visiting us again.
