Shelbourne FC – 9th November 2022

Rush National School were delighted to welcome 3 professional football players from League of Ireland team Shelbourne FC this week. In preparation for this year’s FAI Cup Final on Sunday, Conor Kane, Daniel Hawkins and Jad Hakiki took time out of their busy schedule to visit the boys and girls of the school. 
 
The children had the opportunity to ask some very insightful questions to the 3 players including questions about their diet, former teams they played for and ambitions for the future. The players were extremely kind and generous with their time and all the children had a fantastic time. The players even promised to come back to the school if they win the cup on Sunday.
