Happy new year to you, and everyone at your school. I would like to let you know that the A.G.M of Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol will take place slightly later than usual this year. It will be in early February. The date will be emailed to all schools shortly. It is important to send in your competition’s entry forms immediately, if you haven't already done so. Forms were emailed to all schools in late November, and they can be downloaded from our website. Please post them to me without delay. The handball forms have been emailed to all schools and must be returned to Paddy Collins immediately. If you wish to have your school re-graded in hurling or camogie this year you must send me a written letter to Aodan Wrenn, St. Michael's N.S, Clerihan, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. In that letter you must state which competition you wish to be regraded in and the reasons you think your school should be regraded. Also your school must have a delegate present at the AGM. If your school is not represented at the AGM you will not be regraded. Remember only one school can be regraded from a division each year, as per the rules of Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol. If you have any motions you wish to be discussed and acted upon at the AGM please send in those motions to me in writing at the above school address. If you have any nominations for officer positions in Cumann na mBunscol, or Primary Game Selector positions, please send them in to me in writing too. I will post, by letter, the equipment form for the coming year, by the end of this week. When it arrives please fill it up fully, and ensure it is signed by the school Principal, and then post it back to Jerry McDonnell, 25 Ballingarrane, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. The registration fee of 30 euro per school must be paid in January. Please post a cheque, payable to Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol, to Jerry McDonnell at his address (given above).  I would like to wish each school the very best for the coming year. If I can be of assistance to you don't hesitate to contact me on 087-6578057 anytime after 3pm. Please don't ring me during school hours. If your query is very urgent ring my school on 052-61-35400 and leave a message with our Secretary Katriona. I'll get back to you ASAP once I've received the message.
