The visit coincided with the first whole school gathering of students and teachers in their new building.

The event was organised by the school’s guidance counsellor Maeve McCarthy with teacher Robbie Dunne, a former League of Ireland player for Dundalk MC-ing the event.

Robbie kept the players on their toes with his questions and soccer knowledge, along with footage of their wins culminating in the final against Dundalk.

The players were inspiring and generous in their time throughout the visit.
