Bray People - - Bray Sport -

TRÁTH NA gCeist, the an­nual Cu­mann na mBun­scol Cill Mhan­táin quiz for pri­mary school pupils takes place in the Brock­agh Re­source Cen­tre Laragh on Fri­day 6th March, Dé hAoine 6ú Márta, beginning at 7.30 p.m. sharp.

This pop­u­lar event, which of­ten ap­peals to less sport­ing chil­dren, is now a fix­ture on our cal­en­dar for over ten years. A fea­ture of the quiz is that is has been the smaller schools that have ex­celled in Tráth na gCeist over the years.

As usual, there will be a pre­dom­i­nantly GAAre­lated theme to the quiz, with rounds on county grounds, pic­ture rounds, ques­tions on county spon­sors, the ever pop­u­lar iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of Wick­low clubs from the Gaeilge name and so on.

This be­ing the 125th an­niver­sary of the GAA, there are bound to be lots of ques­tions on the foun­da­tion of the as­so­ci­a­tion. Much of this in­for­ma­tion is avail­able in the Céim ar Aghaidh pack which each school re­ceived over the last cou­ple of years.

Schools may en­ter two teams and pupils can be from any class. This is a fun night with the em­pha­sis on par­tic­i­pa­tion, and each club is asked to bring along some items that can be raf­fled so that no pupil goes home empty-handed.

Due to an over­sight last year re­fresh­ments were not pro­vided, but that will not be the case this year.

Schools can send two teams and each team is re­quested to wear its school or club track­suit. All teams are ex­pected to be in the Brock­agh Re­source Cen­tre no later than 7.15 p.m. so there can be a prompt start at 7.30 p.m.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the quiz please con­tact Geral­dine Kelly in Kil­mac on 01-2861934.


Slides from the var­i­ous pre­sen­ta­tions that were given at the re­cent AGM of Cu­mann na mBun­scol Náisiúnta are avail­a­bale to down­load on www.scoil­ The AGM book­let is also avail to down­load in PDF for­mat.
