Ireland 1; Germany NIl!

Posted on : October 8, 2015

Forty five Sligo Grammar School Students accompanied by four teachers travelled to Dublin to support Ireland in the crucial qualifier match against Germany in the Aviva Stadium last Thursday.

The students were thrilled and honoured to witness the historic victory against the reigning World Champions. Special mention to student James Lawlor Kerr who went above and beyond the call of duty, leading the chant and rallying everyone around him to the cause of the Boys in Green!

A very exhausted, though happy, band of SGS students finally arrived home in the early hours of Friday morning.
