Sky Sports Academy Day

On January 24th, nineteen students from St Kilian's Community School attended Sky Sports 'Living for Sport' Academy Day at the Ireland's new National Sports Campus in Blanchardstown. The event was part of the schedule for the opening week of this magnificent facility. The students representing St Kilian's were chosen for their sporting prowess and achievements, not only at club and school level but, in many cases, on the national and international stage.

On the day, students took part in a wide range of  activities, where they were mentored and coached by a host of well-known sports stars. These included Aoife McDermott (Basketball), Jessie Barr (Athletics), Jenny Murphy (Rugby), Brian Gregan (Athletics) and Darren O'Neill (Boxing). GAA sports were represented by household names such as Christy Toye (Donegal), Shane McGrath (Tipperary), Darran O'Sullivan (Kerry) and Anna Geary (Cork). The Sky Sports Ambassador for the day was Ireland rugby legend, Gordon D'arcy, assisted by British sprinting great, Darren Campbell.

Activities included Athletics, Basketball, Rugby, Camogie, Taekwondo, Gaelic Football, Hurling and Boxing. The students, and accompanying teachers Ms Ryan and Mr Duggan, felt privileged not only to meet so many of Ireland's sporting greats, but to be able to use such a wonderful facility during its inaugural week. They had a fantastic time!
