Cu­mann na mBun­scol launch fix­tures book­let


Bray People - - Sport -

THE 2008-2009 Cu­mann na mBun­scol Cill Mhan­táin Fix­tures and In­for­ma­tion Book­let was launched re­cently at the Ra­mada Ho­tel Bray.

This pop­u­lar pub­li­ca­tion was to­tally re­vamped and up­dated last year and re­ac­tion to the new look was pos­i­tive that it was de­cided to repli­cate the style for this year.

As usual the book­let is a di­ary of events that will be tak­ing place dur­ing the up­com­ing year, but per­haps more im­por­tantly there are nu­mer­ous re­ports and a pic­to­rial record of the 2007-2008 school year.

The book­let is now A5 size with over seventy pages. The main cover pho­to­graph fea­tures pupils from St. Pa­trick’s BNS Wick­low wear­ing the colours of Mun­ster when they rep­re­sented the county in the Martin Don­nelly In­ter­provin­cial fi­nals in Croke Park un­der flood­lights last Oc­to­ber.

There are many pho­to­graphs scat­tered through­out the book­let and there are also four pages of colour pic­tures.

Cu­mann na mBun­scol Cill Mhan­táin wishes to ac­knowl­edge the con­tri­bu­tions of all who have made this pub­li­ca­tion pos­si­ble and es­pe­cially those busi­nesses that took out spon­sor­ship again this year. Go raibh mile maith agaibh go léir. Copies are cur­rently be­ing posted to the schools. If your school does not re­ceive a copy please con­tact the PRO via the school sec­re­tary on 040467415.
