Four former pupils go back to school
17th November 2010
Paul Doherty, Thomas Doherty, Declan McKay and Denise Darragh all past pupils of St.Patrick’s Primary School returned to where it all began, to share their experiences of their recent successes on the playing field. The four members of St.Mary’s GAA Club Rasharkin showed off their silverware, reflected on their incredible achievements to date and then fielded questions from the young audience of the entire Primary School.
Paul, Thomas and Declan are all members of St.Mary’s Rasharkin Gaelic football team who have just concluded a very successful season, winning the Antrim Division Two Football League and landing the double after capturing the Intermediate Championship for the first time in thirty two years. While Denise is part of a victorious Rasharkin Junior Camogie team who also landed a remarkable double, winning the Division Three League and Shield.
The school pupils enjoyed hearing the experiences of their local heroes and did pose very interesting questions to the players about their favourite pitch, how often they train, their favourite players, how many medals they have won, what other sports they enjoy, how many games they have played this season, to name a few.

Thanks go to the Primary School principal Mr McCann and his teaching staff for accommodating this visit and a special mention must go to the primary school pupils who seem to enjoy the experience.
