Sam Maguire

Like all Donegal schools, Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail suffered Sam Maguire Fever. Leading up to Sam’s arrival we proudly wore our Donegal colours and the entire school took part in Tráth na gCeist. Questions were specifically on the Donegal Team and the GAA. When Sam finally arrived it was greeted with a special cake and our own very own version of Da Du Run Run to celebrate the occasion. They also had the Ulster Cup


Saoirse’s Grandmother was part of the crew which sailed around the world on the Clipper. She visited the school and told us all about her journey. She also showed us some wonderful pictures.
