Sam Maguire visits Corpus Christi



We were delighted to welcome the famous Dublin footballer, Johnny Cooper to the school recently. Johnny brought the Sam Maguire trophy with him to show it to the girls. There was great excitement as we waited in the hall for the “ boys in blue” to arrive.
The girls performed a rousing version of Molly Malone to celebrate the Dublin victory and we could hardly hear ourselves with all the noise. Jonny posed for photographs with the girls and answered lots of question from them.

There was sea of Dublin jerseys and na Fianna jerseys (Johnny’s home club) in the hall and the sixth classes girls took all the photographs. After the visit the girls took charge of two of the noticeboard in the corridor and turned them into a “Dubs” zone. The next time you are in the school, have a look at their display.

We hope that we will be able to welcome Sam and Johnny back again next year.
