All schools wishing to compete in Cumann na mBunscol activities for 2012 are encouraged to send the €30 Registration Fee to Mr. Jerry McDonnell, Treasurer Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol, 25 Ballingarrane, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary as soon as possible. This very reasonable fee allows schools to participate in all Cumann na mBunscol activities for 2012. It also ensures that your school benefits from the subsidised Equipment Scheme. This is an annual payment and should be paid annually. It is NOT a one off payment. If schools could see to it that this fee is paid, it would be much appreciated. The following schools have paid their annual registration fee for 2012. If your school is not on this list, the €30 Registration fee is due immediately. In accordance with a recent motion that was passed, a school must pay the €30 Registration fee before participating in Cumann na mBunscol, Co. Thiobraid Árann activities.

I just want to thank all the co-ordinators who organised the Under 11 Hurling blitzes, and the Under 13 Camogie blitzes during the week. Without your great co-operation and hard work we wouldn't have been able to provide the children with the opportunity to play their favourite games. The Under 11 Go Games model has proved to be very popular and we are delighted to see that schools have enjoyed the blitzes so much. Congratulations to all schools who made it through the blitzes. Also well done to ALL teams who participated and to ALL players who put on their school jerseys this week and gave of their very best in each of the games. The objective of the Under 11 model is to ensure that all children get to play in each game. It's an objective that is being met. I would like to say to a big thanks to ALL the teachers who give of their time to train teams and help develop the stars of the future. You are doing a great deed. Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol and indeed Tipperary GAA is deeply indebted to each and every one of you. Le meas, Aodan Wrenn, Secretary, Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol.
