St. Pius X GNS was delighted to welcome Denis Bastik, Dublin All-Ireland winning player, to the school with the Sam Maguire cup on Friday. We were honoured to be the first school in Dublin to receive a visit since Dublin won the All-Ireland football final. All of the children were very excited, dressed in their Dublin colours and waved their flags. Everyone cheered and sang Molly Malone. The girls’ football team had a photo taken with the cup and one of the Junior Infants was put into the cup and lifted up! Some sixth class girls presented Denis with some specially made “Rocky Road” to mark the occasion.
Thanks to Dave Farrelly and Alan O’Brien from Templeogue Synge Street G.A.A. club for organising the visit.
