We understand the importance for the students and the school to have the opportunity to meet some of their sporting heroes and the chance to speak to them regarding their experiences and careers. The DFB wishes to congratulate St Killian’s Deutsche Schule on its 60th anniversary and the important role it plays in maintaining the strong links and friendship that exist between Germany and Ireland ”.
