St Brendan’s National School Kilmeena took part in the half time Cumann na mBunscol exhibition match in McHale Park last Sunday during the half time interval of the Mayo V Donegal match. This was a historic event for the school and a great experience for the boys in 6th class. There was great excitement all week in the school and the boys really enjoyed the experience. It was a great treat to put on the Mayo jersey and walk through the tunnel at McHale Park. As always the lads were a credit to the club and were very thankful to the organisers. The game itself flew by and having recorded 2 lovely scores, Colin Hastings rattled the crossbar with a thunderous shot. All the boys played well and after the exhibition game they shook hands with the lads from Breaffy. We had ring side seats for the match and all witnessed a great result for Mayo. I wish to thank Pat Mulchrone and Martin McIntyre for all their help and support. I have no doubt that this bunch of young men will continue to represent their club and indeed county in the future.
Well done to all concerned.
