A few months ago, i was 100% certain i wasn't going to be heading out to Croker on the 27th of September. If anything i was dreading this day. My two sisters had received the good news from the trials were I on the other hand didn't. I didn't make the panel. I imagined myself watching them fulfill our childhood dream while I watched on as a spectator.
During the week of the summer tests I received the call up to the panel. Everyone was finally after understanding that I wasn't on the panel and as one of my relations said "Oh! You're on a different team to improve your skills". A nice was of saying you're not good enough.
Don't ever give up on your dream whether that's sport, music or school related. I had just about given up hope on mine and now i can proudly say I walked up the steps in the Hogan Stand.
