There was great excitement in Scoil Thomáis today when All Ireland Senior Football Champion Ciarán Kilkenny visited with the Sam Maguire cup. Pupils from Junior Infants and Senior Infants formed a guard of honour welcoming our special guests to the school. When Ciarán and the Sam Maguire arrived to the hall, there was a great reception from pupils and staff. Some pupils from 6th Class got the chance to ask Ciarán some questions like "Who would you pick to play for the Dublin team?" and "Do you think GAA players should be paid?". Everyone sung "Sam is Coming Home" while Ciarán Kilkenny walked around the pupils with the Sam Maguire. It was a very good day!
