Cumman na mBunscol: Hard luck to St Mary’s who were defeated in the county under-11 final in Semple Stadium last week. We send our congratulations to Ciara Morris, Eaobha O Brien and the Ardcroney team who won their final. We wish to take this opportunity to thank all the schools in the parish who promote Gaelic games. All the staff do this on a voluntary basis and it is very much appreciated by the club. Teachers and schools contribution to Gaelic games over the decades has been immense and our club has certainly benefitted from their generosity.
