Visit from Naas GAA All Ireland Hurling Champions
Naas were recently crowned All-Ireland Intermediate Hurling Champions after they held off Kilmoyley from Kerry in Croke Park on Saturday 5th February on a score line of 0-16 to 1-11. In doing so they became the first Club from the county to win an All-Ireland Club Hurling Title!
We were honoured last Tuesday when three of the players, Rian and Conan Boran and Harry Carroll who are all former pupils in Rathmore N.S. took time out of their busy schedules to visit with not one but 3 Cups – Kildare Senior Hurling Champions, Leinster and All-Ireland Intermediate Hurling Champions. We all gathered in the yard in full sunshine for a special Outdoor Assembly and Fourth Class teacher Mr. Walsh who is himself a hurler and a selector with the team introduced the players to all the assembled children. It was a great occasion and an opportunity to meet three of our past pupils and to congratulate them in person on their fantastic achievement. Afterwards the players visited most classrooms in the school and were able to meet the children and answer any questions. The teachers in Rathmore can take credit for laying the foundation for their success when they were first introduced to hurling in their primary school days. What fantastic ambassadors for Rathmore N.S!
