Scoil Ursula was honoured with a visit from the President of the GAA, Liam O’ Neill. He was accompanied by County Board Chairman, Cyril Feehily, our County GAA Games Manager, Liam Óg Gormley, our Football Coach, Charles Harrison and our hurling coach, Benny Kenny. Also in attendance were Frank Carter, Chairman of our local football club, St. Mary’s, and Bill O’Kelly Lynch from our local hurling club, Naomh Eoin as well as members of our Board of Management.
The President was in Sligo to lend his support to the wonderful work that is being undertaken in the promotion of Gaelic Games in schools at primary, post-primary and at Third level in this county. As a Primary School Principal, he is particularly committed to providing the best possible framework for our primary school children to learn and enjoy Gaelic Games. He viewed coaching sessions in both Football & Hurling before addressing a packed assembly in the Halla.
Scoil Ursula has close links with our local club, St. Mary’s, and Club Chairman Frank Carter spoke on its behalf. We have also recently begun to develop hurling as a sport in the school with our team playing its first ever match on Wednesday. Our local hurling club, Naomh Eoin, was represented by Club Secretary, Bill O’ Kelly Lynch, who spoke on its behalf.
In his address, Mr O' Neill, emphasised the enjoyment of participation in all sports and encouraged the children to be respectful on the field of play. Our Deputy Principal, Mrs Corcoran made a presentation to mark his visit to Sligo and Scoil Ursula. She presented the President with a piece of Sligo Pottery depicting the Fiddler of Dooney famed in the Yeats poem, which we hope will remind him of his visit here in the years to come.
