Football Finals. Good Luck.

We wish our boys and girls teams the very best of luck as they play in Cumann na mBunscoil finals. The games will take place in Pairc Sean MacDiarmuida, Carrick-on-Shannon.

The girls team play in the Division 1 final at 8 p.m. on Monday 28th May. The boys team play in the Division 1 Shield final at 7 p.m. on Wednesday 30th May.

A very big thank you to all our trainers. Without their on going commitment, support and coaching the teams could not have reached the finals. Thanks to Mrs McElgunn and Ms Taylor for working with the teams also. Finally thanks to all the parents for taking the children to training throughout the year and to the matches. Thank you for your continued support.

The very best of luck to both teams.

Non Uniform Day

Both the boys and girls school football teams will play in finals next week. The girls team will play on Monday 28th and the boys on Wednesday 30th. To show support for our teams we will hold a non uniform day on Monday 28th May. We ask, if possible, for children to wear something yellow or purple (our team colours) to school.

We would like to take this opportunity to raise funds for the Patient Comfort Fund in St. Patrick’s Hospital, Carrick -on-Shannon. If pupils participating in the non uniform day could bring in €2 on Monday.
