Pete McGrath speaks from the heart at Cumann na mBunscol Awards
It's always a night to remember at the Cumann na mBunscol Awards, sponsored each year by Cornmarket Financial Financial Services. Last year, Eamon Ryan, manager of the all-conquering Cork Ladies Football team, held his audience spellbound as he spoke on management and told stories of his career as a player, teacher and coach. This year, the guest speaker was Fermanagh Football manager Peter McGrath who led his native Down to All-Ireland glory in 1991 and 1994. Peter, quiet and unassuming, has an outstanding track record as a coach. He taught for 28 years in St Colman's College in Newry before retiring. Peter spoke of the spirit of volunteerism that is the lifeblood of Cumann na mBunscol.
