The children were thrilled to welcome back the Sam Maguire to Scoil Maelruain yet again. Mr. Broderick did a fantastic job as M.C. and the children asked lots of interesting questions. The most popular question was …” Can we have a night off homework!?” Here’s hoping Sam will be back again next year.
