St Gabriel’s NS visit to Bohemian FC and Dalymount Park

3rd and 4th  were invited on a tour of Dalymount Park, home ground of League of Ireland club Bohemians. We met the club chairman and star Romanian striker, Christian Magerusan. We visited the dressing rooms, the stands and lots of other facilities. We made a display about what we saw, did and learned. We are very grateful to Shane, Paul and Carina for being such wonderful guides!
