Ireland rugby star Johnny Sexton hosted a coaching masterclass for the winners of MACE’s “Going the Extra Smile” campaign.
The Caherline National School won Mace’s campaign because they performed acts of kindness, such as regularly visiting the nursing home and cleaning up roads, according to a statement. Sexton said he was proud to be associated with a campaign that promotes random acts of kindness.
“I’m delighted to be able to give back to the local community and deliver a coaching session to Caherline National School who deservedly won this great competition,” Sexton said.
Likewise, the school said they were happy to host Sexton.
“It was great to have a player of Johnny’s stature pass on some nuggets to the students, especially as it can’t have been easy for him coming into a Munster rugby stronghold!” Caherline National School principal Gearóid Power said.
“The students had a wonderful day and I want to thank Johnny and Mace for making it happen.”
Mace had the campaign so the company could strengthen its relationship with local communities. They believe Sexton will continue to help support local communities and promote their brand.
“We were very excited to have Johnny deliver a coaching master class to the deserving winners …” said Daniel O’Connell, sales director, Mace.
“Mace is determined to contribute positively to the communities they serve to lead a healthy, active lifestyle filled with acts of kindness and Johnny is also a great role model for young people in communities all over Ireland.”
