IT’S not everyone’s teacher who wins the Sam Maguire – and then brings it to the school.
But that’s what Mr Rory Kavanagh did today at the school where he teaches in Letterkenny.
Pupils at Scoil Cholmcille – the boys school – formed a guard of honour for Rory and his teammates Colm McFadden, Frank McGlynn and Kevin Rafferty.
Both Kevin and Rory are also past pupils of the school.
What a magical morning for the children.
