All the Cumann na mBunscol news
WITH MANY schools on mid term break last week, no games were played in the Allianz Football Leagues.
With the bad weather of the two previous weeks, our leagues are behind schedule, but we in Cumann na mBunscol are adaptable and no doubt we’ll get our programme back on track over the next few weeks!

The annual quiz will take place on Dé hAoine 6ú Márta in the Brockagh Resource Centre Laragh. Schools may bring along two teams of four and each team is to wear either the school or local club tracksuit. Teams should be in the hall no later than 7.15 p.m. All clubs are asked to sponsor some spot prizes so no pupil goes home empty-handed.
GAA/INTO MINI SEVENS
It’s almost that time of the year again when our thoughts turn towards the initial selection process for the exhibition matches in Croke Park on All Ireland semi-final and final days. This year there is a new selection process whereby each school may bring along two pupils to the relevant venue where they will be put through some skills exercises based on the FunDo Resource Pack. Schools have been written to about this. For further details contact Dave Barry in St. Cronan’s.
