Sam Was Back In Town


Dublin star Paul Mannion brought a very special visitor to some of the schools of Ranelagh this week.

The All-Ireland winner had his friend Sam Maguire with him when he dropped into see the boys and girls of Lios na nÓg, Scoil Bhride and St Mary’s – and as expected the most famous cup in Irish sport got a great reception.


Thanks to Paul for taking the time out of his busy schedule for helping out – particularly after playing a tough club game the night before – and to our GPO Simon Lambert for helping to organise everything.

Thanks to all the boys and girls who were so enthusiastic, the teachers and principals of the schools and to our super snapper Joe Davitt for taking the pictures.


Sam Maguire also visited our Wednesday night Juvenile Academy training at Donnybrook Stadium on Wednesday night so the local kids will be very familiar with the prestigious trophy.

Let’s hope that one day a few of them will get the chance to hoist it on the steps of the Hogan Stand as players.
