Peter from St Pat's GAA club came to inspire boys in our school to join local GAA clubs. Peter taught the boys over a 5 week period and the boys learnt a lot. Peter taught the boys the fundamentals of hurling and on the last two weeks showed the boys some of the basic skills of Gaelic football such as the hand-pass, solo and the pick-up. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the 5 weeks and we hope to have Peter back soon.
