Anto Finnegan was a guest speaker at a Year 8 and 9 Assembly in De La Salle College. At the Assembly the DVD of the Santa Hat Aerobics in aid of deterMND was shown. College Head Boy Adam McKenna, Robert McKee and Conal McGivern presented a cheque of £2851 to Anto and Conal Finnegan on behalf of deterMND raised from the Santa Hat Aerobics. Anto also enjoyed meeting ex St Paul’s colleagues John Mac Manus and Charlie Hemsworth along with former Lámh Dhearg club mates Paul Buchanan and Frank Fitzsimons.
Anto thanked the staff and pupils for their fantastic effort and was delighted to see so many participants at the event being so active and energetic and having fun. In an inspirational address Anto spoke about MND and the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of playing sport at school and in the community.
After the event Anto commented “I really enjoyed this morning. They’re a great bunch of lads and the school can be very proud of them. Thanks again for all their efforts.”
