Last week we were honoured to have Irish Olympic Gold Medalist Ronnie Delaney visit the College to talk to TY boys about his career, goal setting and the psychology of winning. Teachers, staff and the Jesuit community also got to spend time with Ronnie who is a most entertaining speaker. Mikey Spillane (Rudiments) a promising runner (pictured) was lucky to get some valuable tips from the Olympic athlete! Before he left he paid tribute to the TY boys who he said, asked very insightful and probing questions.
