Cumann na mBunscol (Article 17)

Shortlisted for a National Award in Public Relations and Kilcoole as School of the Year

The fantastic news filtered through to the Garden County this week that Cumann na mBunscol Chill Mhantáin has been shortlisted for a National Award for its Public Relations work; and Kilcoole Primary School has been shortlisted in the School of the Year category.  Thanks to the local media for their exposure of the primary school’s Gaelic games in the county; this support has made such high standards possible.  All in all, this is incredible news for a small county in such a prestigious countrywide competition.  The Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol National Awards Ceremony will take place on the 3rd March in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.  Fingers crossed for good news for Wicklow in both categories.
