Mr. Lowery’s 5th class attended the launch of Peter Byrnes’  book ” Winning for Ireland” . The book is about the many athletes who have performed for Ireland on the world stage since 1857. The children were shown around the National Indoor Arena They took part in relays, sprints, long and high jumps and javelin throwing. They also got to meet past greats such as David Matthew’s , Eamonn Coughlan, John Tracey, Catriona Mc Kiernan and Ronnie Delaney. They completed their daily mile as these legends of sport looked on.  What an honour and a treat!
