Last Wednesday Kilrickle National School was delighted to welcome the Liam MacCarthy and the Irish Press Cups to the school with local heroes James Skehill and Damien Joyce.
After Galway's fantastic year in sport, winning the senior and minor all - Ireland hurling competitions, the children of Kilrickle were eager to get their hands on the trophies, particularly the Liam MacCarthy which had eluded the county for so long.
Damien and James spoke to us about winning the trophies and took time to take pictures and sign jerseys, hurleys and sliotars to name but a few.
Both men were extremely kind to us and it was an absolute pleasure to have them come to our school, taking time out of their hectic schedules with both players having represented their club and county with distinction.
May their visit fuel the ambitions and motivations of the next generation of hurling and camóige players in our school.
Míle Buíochas daoibh!
