We had a great morning with Eoin Bradley,past pupil who visited our school today with the Tennent’s Irish Cup. The Irish Cup is the fourth oldest National Cup competition in the world and was first contested in 1881. Eoin was instrumental in Coleraine winning the Cup. We also had the pleasure of meeting Coleraine’s manager Oran Kearney last year.
