Marcus Horan, who is well known for his ability to shoulder heavy burdens, took on an extra bit of community work in May when he visited St. Nessan's Community College, in Moylish, Limerick City.
As a favour to An Garda Síochána, Marcus took part in a live interview with John Hayes of Spin South West FM in front of 4th and 5th year students in the school.

The aim of the interview was to show the pupils the importance of discipline and hard work if you are to achieve your ambitions. Marcus also talked about the sacrifices he has made to get to where he is in sport today ? and of course how it felt to be a part of the Grand-Slam-winning Irish Rugby team!

Marcus spoke about how he had seen many players who had all the talent they needed to make it at the highest levels of the game, but how staying focused and sticking at it is more important than talent or ability in the end. He stressed the importance of setting goals for yourself as an individual and as a member of your team.

The visit to St. Nessan's was part of a Garda campaign called 'How Big Do You Feel?' The campaign has two goals: it teaches young people about the dangers of knife crime and it inspires them to follow in the footsteps of their heroes and dream big. Some people think knives can protect you, but that isn't true. You can learn more about the campaign here.
