Some members of the successful Naas GAA Féile Football and Hurling teams, and former students of St. Corban's visited the school with their winning trophies last Friday. Well done to all involved!
Kildare footballer and captain Eamonn Callaghan, a former St. Corban's student, visited us at the end of the year to present medals and trophies to all the boys who were successful in sports this year. Eamonn took time out of a busy week to visit us and speak to the boys and we are very grateful.
