Two youngsters give us a reminder of true sportsmanship at schools GAA finals

Photographer Pairic English caught a brilliant moment at the Allianz Sciath na Scol Finals in Cork.

AS ANYONE WHO has ever played in one will tell you, schools GAA finals are a serious business.

But winning isn’t everything.

Photographer Pairic English caught this brilliant moment shared by two young opponents at the Allianz Sciath na Scol Finals in Cork.

In the heat of their final, played in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Tuesday, Riain Ó Cathail (black jersey) was quick to console Ciarán O’Connell.

The photo was taken just after Ó Cathail’s school, Gaelscol Mhainistir Na Corann in Midleton, scored a goal against Coachford NS.

O’Connell had plenty to smile about by the final whistle though as Coachford went on to win in extra-time.

Thanks to Allianz Sciath na Scol PRO Seamus O’Connor for the info.
