Easter Walk

The Easter walk will take place on Friday morning April 7th, let’s keep our fingers crossed for a fine spell of weather. All are welcome.

Hurling Blitz

There is a Hurling Blitz on Wednesday April 5th in Moyle Rovers for the U13s, they are training very well each week under the keen eye of Cornelius McFadden.


Soccer training is continuing.  We thank Ian and Sandra Sheehan for coaching.  Congratulations again to the U13 girls team who recently won the shield at Cahir Park AFC.

The boys teams did very well in Cahir yesterday in the South Tipperary Qualifier of the FAI Primary Schools 5-a-side Competition. They were extremely unlucky not get through to the next stage.

The girls teams will travel to Cahir for the same FAI Primary Schools 5-a-side Competition next Monday, March 13th.

Kool Schools & Swimming

We had a busy period in the school recently, on Wednesdays we had Kool School lessons with one half of the school while the other half went swimming.

These Kool Schools classes with Juniors – Second class has recently finished at the school.  Thanks to instructor Niall.  The children greatly enjoyed these activities.

With that said, Children from third to sixth class have completed the swimming programme.  Thanks to all the parents who helped supervise the children at the pool.

Well done to Eilish Bartley who competed in the National Finals in the National Aquatic Centre on February 12th


We are very excited that Yoga is starting at the school on March 7th for four weeks for Junior Infants to Second Class.

Soccer Champs

The Girls took part in 5 a-side tournament in Cahir Park on Friday February 17th. They played very well throughout the day, improving with every game. Having played Newcastle, Gaelscoil Carrick and Ardfinnan in the group stages they qualified for latter stages of the competition and beat a very good Cahir side in the semi-final. They then played Burncourt in the final game on their way to victory.

Congratulations to the girls it is nothing more than they deserved, ending the week on a high after narrowly losing out to Clerihan in the debating competition.
