Wexford hurling star Lee Chin may have moved on from school sports days but he had no problem joining in the fun with pupils of the Mercy in John's Road.
Lee arrived to officially open the school's new astroturf pitch and walking track on its annual 'sport for all' day.
The guest of honour posed for photographs with a giant cardboard scissors presented to him by the pupils before he formally cut the ribbon.
The all-weather pitch and walking track allow children to play sport outdoors even when it's raining.
The new walking track around the perimeter is also a much-used facility.
The entire population of the school took part in the sports day which included egg and spoon, three-legged, sack and relay races.
Sixth class pupils ran a relay race against the teacher. Who won?. You've guessed it - the children.
