G.A.A. President ~ May 2014

On Monday May 12th, we were delighted and honoured to welcome the President of the GAA, Mr. Liam O’Neill to the school. He was on a tour of schools all over the country, and St. Pat’s was one of only four schools in Galway chosen for a visit.

He spoke to all the boys, and told them about his own playing days and how they should enjoy playing Football and Hurling. He made a strong point about wearing gum-shields and helmets, saying that no game is worth a tooth or an eye.
He spoke for about 10 minutes, and got a great reception from the boys.
He was accompanied by a number of well known footballers, including Ja Fallon, John Tobin ( Connacht Coaching Officer), Tom Mcmanus and also Gerry Bodkin, Chairman of Tuam Stars Club
