26/06/2015 LORETO ACKNOWLEDGES SPONSORSHIP OF GAELIC TEAM

Gaelic Games coaches at Loreto College paid tribute to Mr Brendan Etherson from Etherson Meats Ballymoney, who kindly helped to sponsor the College’s Gaelic teams and the development of the Loreto pitch this year.  Mr Etherson is a past pupil of the College, having left in 2000, and who has fond memories of playing on Loreto teams while a student. Indeed, eagle-eyed Gaelic coach Mr Sean Murtagh spotted Brendan Etherson in the 1999 Senior Gaelic Team photo – demonstrating that continuity exists between the past, present and future of Gaelic Games in Loreto. 

Mr Etherson enjoyed his tour of the College’s sports facilities, and was hugely impressed by the Sports Hall and the new Gaelic Pitch which have been added to the Loreto campus since he left.  He also had the opportunity to meet Mrs Schira McGoldrick, Gaelic Games Co-ordinator at Loreto, and teachers and coaches Mr Bob Murphy and Mr Sean Murtagh, as well as some of the members of the Year 9 Gaelic team who recently won the Ulster Colleges Irish News Cup.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to Mr Etherson for his generosity to his former school and thanked him on behalf of all the students and staff of the College.
