Yesterday was a very special day in our school as Sam Maguire came to visit us. It is the 25th time that the Dublin senior football team have won the All Ireland Foot ball Championship. Dublin’s super corner forward Dean Rock came to our school with the trophy along with Panner our club coach and Eimear from the Dublin County Board. Dean played all twenty one games for the Dubs this year. He was the only player on the squad to play every game in every competition for his manager Jim Gavin.
All of the children in the school got to meet Dean and the famous trophy. We sang Dublin songs for Dean and we got lots of photographs taken also. We are so lucky in our school to get a visit form this famous trophy and we asked Dean to make sure and win it again next year so we can cover Malahide with the ‘blue of the Dubs’ again.
