Sam Maguire visits St Pius!


We were delighted to welcome the Sam Maguire back to St Pius X GNS yesterday after an absence of a few years! The girls were very excited to celebrate the success of the Dubs with a “blue day” here in Pius X where the girls got to wear blue for the day.

The Sam Maguire was accompanied by Lorcan O Dell, our local Dublin superstar, and Kevin, our TSS GPO. Every class got to meet Lorcan and Sam and ask questions about what it is like to be a Dublin footballer. They asked some fantastic questions and the advice Lorcan gave them was superb!

The newly elected Student Council were there to meet and greet Sam at reception, get their photo taken and even got to ask a few questions too.

We finished the visit with our own Pius X football teams (both the girls and the boys teams) getting their photo taken with Sam and Lorcan.

Thanks so much to Lorcan O Dell, and Kevin from TSS for the visit and for the invaluable advice they gave the girls. I’m sure the girls are inspired to start their own successful sporting journey!
