St John the Baptist BNS had a fantastic day on Wednesday where they were privileged to have a visit from the Liam McCarthy Cup, just in time before the Munster final on Sunday.
It was a fantastic day with great community spirit and camaraderie. Parents, Grandparents, family and friends visited the school for this special occasion. We also had the pleasure of inviting people who have a very positive impact on our school: Seamus Long (previous Principal of the school), Ger Hegarty (a past pupil and Gearoid Hegarty’s father), Niall Phelan and Mike Mc from St Patrick’s GAA and Michelle O’ Riordan (school’s manager) and of course Fr. Noel Kirwan. Everyone gathered around for tea, coffee, croissants and sausage rolls, catching up on lost time due to COVID-19.
Gary McCarthy from Limerick GAA brought the cup for the boys to see. Liam McCarthy wasn’t in Limerick for 45 years previous to 2018, making this a very important moment for the boys in St. John the Baptist BNS.
Gary then presented us with the GAA 5-star flag Award which Ms. Grace has been working towards since 2018. The school is extremely proud of the boys as their GAA skills have improved immensely due to their ongoing training with Gary as part of the initiative.
It was a fantastic day that won’t be forgotten and we look forward to more fun days with a great sense of community spirit.
