What's the story Rory? Mr Kavanagh returns to school...with new pupil Sam Maguire

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.
