Award winner Andrew McClean finally gets his prize

As part of the preparations for Antrim’s Joe Mc Donagh Cup Final vs. Kerry last December Cumann na mBunscol Aontroim organised the ‘Road to Croker’ Primary School Poster & Creative Writing Competition for all schools across the county.

There were three winners from each key stage with Andrew Mc Clean from St. Olcan’s PS Armoy being chosen as the ‘overall winner’ by Shane Elliott and Johnny Mc Intosh live on Antrim GAA ‘Up for the Match’ programme where he and his his parents also appeared live on the night.

The prize was a coaching day with some of the Antrim Senior Hurlers. There have been a couple of lockdowns since that final but Andrew and his St Oclan’s school friends finallly got the chance to enjoy their prize on Monday when team captain Conor Mc Cann and goalkeeper Ryan Elliott came along to the Glen Rovers Club and put them through a training session.

The St Olcan’s players give a big cheer as they wish Antrim good luck on Saturday in their Leinster Hurling Championship clash wiht Dublin.
