Antrim Stars meet Aghagallon All Stars

Saturday was a very exciting training session for the Aghagallon All Stars as some special visitors arrived to wish them well before their long awaited trip to Croke Park this week.

Antrim Camogie players Chloe McShane and Niamh Cosgrove, Antrim ladies footballers Anna Mullholand and Grainne McLaughlin and Antrim men’s footballer Marc Jordan kindly took time out of their busy schedule on Saturday to visit the Aghagallon All Stars team during their special sponsored training session in Páirc na nGael.

The Antrim legends joined in with both the younger and the older group’s training sessions and the children got the chance to show off all their skills and determination. The Antrim girls even got a chance to learn a few new skills themselves as they keenly jumped into the visiting ice cream van to give out ice cream to all the children. Grainne and Chloe proved a dab hand at pulling a poke!

Aghagallon All Stars coordinator, Bronagh McCavigan stated, ‘We want to thank all the Antrim players for coming here today. It has given the kids a real lift to meet their heroes and boosts all our excitement for going to Croke Park. We hope to go and do our club and county proud just like the Antrim players here today!’

Aghagallon All Stars are looking forward to Thursday when the players, coaches and over 150 of their supporters descend on Croke Park for the Ulster Inclusion Activity Day. The team is looking forward to playing football, visiting the museum and of course, meeting up with their friends in the other Antrim GAA for All teams, Antrim All Stars and Naomh Éanna. We wish our all our Antrim GAA for All teams the best day and hope they make lots of special memories.
