Bective Cannistown GFC are one of the leading gaelic footbal teams in all the land. Their star player, a young Mr. Cillian Reilly, has kicked the ball into the net many times. Sometimes even into the net of the opposing team. Mr. Reilly is currently studying for his Masters in Mathematics at Maynooth University. It is hoped that he will be able to count higher than the number 7 following completion of this higher degree.
