H. Shefflin

The famous Kilkenny Hurler, Mr. Henry Shefflin, visited the school on the 19th April.  He talked to the  students about his career and achievements – Henry Shefflin won 10 All-Irelands, 13 Leinster titles and 11 All-Stars and yet was very modest about it.  He told the students he struggled to make his team when he was young.  But through hard work and dedication he got to where he is today. The students then asked him questions. He talked to the U16 football team to encourage them and give them advice.


The celebrated Kerry footballer, Mr. Colm Cooper, came to the school to talk to the 1st and 2nd

C. Cooperyear students. This is the second time that he has visited the school as part of the AIB Build a Bank Challenge. After he spoke to students, he signed autographs and took pictures with students.  Later he went to the HWH Bunclody football pavilion to train the local primary schools from Carrigduff, Bunclody, Our Lady of Lourdes, Bunclody and Kiltealy N.S.
