Congratulations to Emily Marnane who has won two supreme championships recently. Her first success was at Newbridge College Horse Show and the second win was at Cavan Equifestival. Emily's pony is called Creevelea Midnight Gambler (better known as Ollie!). Emily has won many events at horse shows around the country. She brought in a small collection of her prizes to school this week. Well done on all of your great work Emily.
Earlier this year James O' Dwyer (4th Class) wrote a letter to Tipperary hurler Noel McGrath. James is a huge fan of Noel McGrath. In his letter James told Noel about how he regularly attends Tipperary hurling matches. He also wrote about his own hurling career to date and he told Noel about his aspirations to play for Tipperary in the future!
Last Sunday morning, Noel McGrath paid a surprise visit to James' home. Noel presented James with the jersey that he wore in the 2017 All Ireland semi final against Galway. They chatted about hurling for a while and Noel signed the jersey for James before he left. There was great excitement in school on Monday when James brought in the signed jersey and told his classmates all about his surprise visitor!!
