Cumann na mBunscol launch fixtures booklet
SCOILSPORT POPULAR PUBLICATION RETURNS
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.
