Conor Glass returns to Year 8 BuildingJune 13, 2016
MacRory Cup winning captain Conor Glass returned to the junior school site at St Patrick’s Maghera recently where he displayed the MacRory Cup during the Year 8 sports day. Conor and the MacRory were in big demand for photos and a number of his St Patrick’s coaches were on hand to present Conor with a commemorative wall hanging of his sporting successes while in St Patrick’s.
Four years on the MacRory Cup first 15, 3 MacRory winners medals and 3 Hogan Cup finals were backed up by Thompson, MacNamee, D’Alton and Rannafast winners medals while balancing a very busy club career with Watty Graham’s Glen, and Derry minors in his senior school years, have all certainly marked Conor out as a special sporting talent.
Conor took time to let the Year 8 pupils enjoy having the MacRory Cup at their sports day and also had pictures taken with recent successful Year 8 Captains, Michael Mulholland (O’Farrell Cup), Callum O’Kane (Thompson Cup), Conleth Lagan and Oran Hampsey (O’Farrell Shield).
Conor will depart for Australia and the Hwthorn AFL club when he completes his A Levels and everyone at St Patrick’s will wish him well in the latest chapter of his sporting career.
