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.
We would like to thank Andy for offering up his time and hopefully his visit will inspire future football stars from St. Joseph’s.
We will be closed to students on Friday 15th March 2019 to facilitate staff training.
Please note that this means the school will now close for students on Thursday 14th March at 2.45 p.m. and reopen on Wednesday 20th March at 9.05 a.m.
