26 Teams Participate in 3rd and 4th Class Boys Football Blitz
Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Chill Mhantáin’s (North East) last on-field action before the midterm break took place in Bray Emmets on Thursday 24th October. This time it was the turn of 3rd and 4th class boys. Proving to be a very popular event every year this year saw 16 schools (26 teams) take part in our participation blitz. Playing in near perfect conditions the 26 teams gave their all in what turned out to be a very entertaining day’s football. Playing games where point scoring only was allowed, the teams worked well together to fashion scores. Allianz Cumann na mBunscol would like to thank our Young Whistler referees (6th class children from various schools) Dillon, Ella, Daniel, Lucy, Tom, Matthew, Ronan, Josh & Éanna who excelled in their knowledge of the rules. As ever Allianz Cumann na mBunscol are indebted to the retired teachers, Dave Barry & Micheál Ó Murchú, who consistently make themselves available to set out the pitches for each blitz.
The participating schools were: St. Peter’s Bray (1), St.Fergal’s Bray (2), Nun’s Cross Ashford (2), Ravenswell (1), Scoil Chualann (1), St. Cronan’s Bray (2), Kilmacanogue (2), Newtownmountkennedy (1), Kilcoole (1), Scoil na Coroine Mhuire Ashford (2), St. Patrick’s Wicklow (1), Moneystown NS (1), Gaelscoil na Clocha Liath (3), St. Laurence’s Greystones (4), St. Brigid’s Greystones (1) and Wicklow Educate Together (1).
