Andy McDonnell Visits St. Joseph’s

 

 

Last week the boys were lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet a local hero and an inter-county football star.

Louth footballer and captain of the two in a row Senior County Champions, The Newtown Blues, Andy McDonnell paid a visit to the school to talk all things football, answer the many questions that were put to him and he also put the Gaelic football team through their paces with training a session.

The boys picked up some expert tips about the importance of nutrition as well as developing their skills with new training drills.

Garda Sports Day!!!

Well done to the boys from St. Josephs who represented the school so well at the recent Garda Sports Day. In what is an annual event that is always eagerly anticipated by students from all over Drogheda, it was great that the weather held up and allowed the students of Drogheda to demonstrate their athletic prowess. St. Josephs were well represented and competitive in all events and managed to take two medals in total back to Sundays Gate. A big congrats to all the boys and a big thank you to Mr. Mulroy for preparing the boys for the event.
A special word of thanks to the Garda Síochana of Drogheda for what is always a well run and exciting event and the O’Raghallaighs GFC for providing the facilities.
