Past pupil and Chasing Abbey star Jonathan “Bee” Byrne visited Geashill School on Wednesday 19th December to present medals to the girls’ football team. The girls won their Cumann na mBunscol final in October.
Principal Mícheál Hyland welcomed Jonathan back to the school and congratulated him on his success with Chasing Abbey. He recalled Jonathan won a Cumann na mBunscol competition back in 2007 when he was in 6th Class. Jonathan was delighted to present the girls with their winning medals.
After posing for many photographs Jonathan, with the help of the team, sang a chorus of the hit song Talk to Me. He then took part in a lunchtime game of soccer much to the excitement of all pupils before signing lots of autographs. A day to remember for the whole school.
