There was wild excitement in the school gym today when Ms Doonan introduced Roisín, Eirinn, Rachael and Joanne, four Loreto players from the victorious All Ireland Ladies Footbal Team. They visited along with manager Finian and Mentor Lily, and showed off the Mary Quinn Memorial Cup. Finian Farrell spoke of the amazing dedication and committment each member of the team has shown on their journey. Roisin O’Keefe spoke on behalf of all the team, especially the Loreto girls – she encouraged every student to put time and effort into both her sporting and academic ventures as they complemented each other through school, college and working life.
Roisin then presented our U-14 team with medals they had won at the end of last season.
It was a tremendous honour to have these fabulous role models with us for the afternoon, and we all wish them well in the Senior Championship next year.
Here they are pictured among our students from the current Loreto footballing panels.
Roisin’s words of thanks and encouragement are recorded here: Cavan Ladies All-Ireland Champions Visit.
