Ballyneale National School




Under 11 and U13 girls and boys recently took part in school hurling blitzes.  The Under 13 boys in hurling continue on in their competition.

Well done to all who took part.

Easter Walk and Egg Hunt

Thank you to all parents and family members who attended the Easter walk around the block this morning.  We had a lovely spring day that made it all the more enjoyable.  Classes took part in an Easter egg hunt around the school grounds after the walk.

The school reopens on Monday the 9th March.



Soccer training is continuing.  We thank Ian and Sandra Sheehan and Miss Whelan for coaching.  Three teams (boys and girls) recently represented the school in Cahir as part of the FAI Primary Schools 5-a-side Competition (South Tipperary Qualifiers).  One of the teams has reached the finals stage of the County Tipperary Qualifier which will be held in Littleton on 26th April and we wish them the very best of luck.

Thank you to all those who have brought in materials already.
