The boys and girls in second class B were very excited today. Local paralympian Niamh McCarthy came to visit our school. Niamh competed in the discus during the paralympics in Rio this summer and won a silver medal. The boys and girls were very impressed especially when they found out that she trained six times a week and that she was able to throw the discus a distance of 26 metres. We really enjoyed her visit. Congratulations to Niamh from all of us here in 2nd Class B.
