Editor's Viewpoint: Our sports day
Schools Cup finals day in rugby and GAA always provides a colourful and exciting pageant.
At a time when many complain that young people don't take enough exercise, the players in each game show a level of fitness and expertise which gives lie to their critics.
But it also provides a day for the rest of the school to show their pride in their teams and their institution and they turn out in the hundreds to do just that. It is an annual celebration, a day away from the classroom and a memory which will last a lifetime.
