Lucky Boots!

Where were you when it happened?  Yes, when you are old and grey and the memories are starting to fade there will be at least one etched forever in your sporting (and national) pride.  Johnny Sexton’s drop goal at the death vs. France in the Six Nations will be played again and again and again until the rising seas short circuit all our screens. And somehow, I think, Johnny just will not let that happen either.  Let us do our part:

But the story gets better.  Johnny donated the famous footwear for auction to help a very sick girl and a certain St. Conleth’s family ended up with the prized bootikins.  And this family loaned the hallowed hoofers to the school! Mr. Kilcommons then organised an interesting competition: one of our sports hall’s basketball hoops was festooned with said stilettos and all the Juniors had the chance to kick a hole-in-on, so to speak.  Everyone had go, and the crack was mighty, with one particularly skilled booter being carried off the court by his classmates!  Check out the pics below and stay tuned for the individual class winners.
