Ard Rí Community NS were delighted to welcome Colm Keys, Chairman of Simonstown Gaels GFC and players Mickey Brennan, Shane O’Rourke and Conor Nash to celebrate with them on their Meath Senior Championship win.
They brought with them the much coveted Keegan Cup.
The players explained to the children the importance of playing sport and leading a healthy lifestyle. They made the point that this was the first senior win in the 51 years since the club’s foundation, how important determination is, not only in sport but in everyday life.
The club donated a set of jerseys to the school to commemorate their great victory and to celebrate the start of a partnership between Ard Rí and Simonstown. We hope this will be the start of Gaelic Games for Ard Rí.
We wish Conor the best of luck as he embarks on his professional footballing career in Australian Football League and Simonstown Gaels as they progress in the Leinster Club Championship.
