Many thanks to Conall Kennedy for coming to visit our school today. He kindly gifted Seán English a signed Tipperary Jersey worn in the Semi Final defeat to Mayo. This very generous gift was given to Seán in response to fifth and sixth class writing Christmas cards and congratulations messages to the Tipperary Munster Champions. Conall's brother Coleman also gifted a signed jersey to Cori Slattery.
