We have a slew of alumni news to tell you, and that is coming soon in a special omnibus, but if anyone deserves special mention and an article all of his own, it is Aongus Hegarty of the Class of 2017. Aongus was renowned at St. Conleth’s not only for his sporting acumen and academic excellence, but also for his sunny disposition, ready sense of humour and impeccable manners.
Well, lacrosse can be a challenging, rough and tough sport, and though we are sure Aongus has the talent and mettle for any sport to which he turns he his hand, we are also sure that he is now probably the politest lacrosse player on earth! Recently his UCD Lacrosse Team represented Ireland at the Lacrosse European Championships at the University of Ghent in Belgium. And while the UCD team was not the overall winner they played five exciting games against England, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium, and Aongus was the star between the sticks. Quite impressive, considering Aongus just took up lacrosse in first year in UCD and is now the starting team goalkeeper. St. Conleth’s alumni once again flying the flag in the sporting arena!
