We have two All Ireland medals coming to school tomorrow with a sliver in junior girls from Leila Colfer and a bronze in minor girls from Emily Lawlor. Winning your county is good winning Leinster is very good but winning an All Ireland medal doesn’t happen very often and these two girls deserve a massive round of applause.
