Cormac McAnallen was a brilliant teacher and sportsperson. He played Gaelic football at senior inter-county level for Tyrone.
Cormac died suddenly on 2 March 2004, aged 24. Despite his relatively short career, he won almost every honour in the game. He was often captain of successful teams, and was known as a particularly inspirational captain.
In 2004 the Cormac McAnallen Cup, the cup that Ireland and Australia play for in the International Rules Series, was named in his honour.
The 2013 Series was notable for the inclusion of an Australian team made up of exclusively indigenous players, known as the Indigenous All Stars.
We were very lucky that Tadhg and Cillian Whytock's mam Tracey could bring the cup to our school for the day.
