FOOTBALL COMPETITIONS & REPORTING
Our football competitions have now begun in earnest. We are encouraging all schools and any “budding journalists” to send in match reports from their upcoming games. We would love to receive reports from schools on all you do to promote Gaelic Games within your school. We would encourage all schools to get their senior pupils to submit reports for our weekly match report competition. Schools could get pupils to write about a special GAA event taking place in their school e.g. The Tipp Minor Footballers Visiting With The Cup, Medal Presentation for School Leagues, School Player of the Year Article, etc. We look forward to hearing from you.
UPDATED LIST OF REGISTERED SCHOOLS AS OF 03/10/11
All schools wishing to compete in Cumann na mBunscol activities for 2011 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 2011. 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 2011. 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. €30 Registration fee is due annually. Registered Schools: Ardfinnan NS, Aglish, Roscrea, Anacarty NS, Ardcroney NS, Ayle NS, Ballagh NS, Ballinree NS, Burgess NS, Ballina, Barnane, Ballyneale, Ballytarsna, Ballylooby, Cloughjordan, Clogheen, Clonmore, Clonoulty, Cappawhite, Carrig (Ballycommon), Clerihan, Castleiney, Convent of Mercy Nenagh, Donaskeigh, Drom, Dualla Dunkerrin,Fantane, Fethard, Holycross, Hollyford,Gaelscoil Bhríde Thurles, Gaelscoil Aonach Urmhumhan, Gaelscoil Cluain Meala, Gaelscoil Carraig na Siúire, Greenschool Carrick On Suir, Golden, Gortnahoe, Glengoole, Grange, Grangemockler, St. John The Baptist BNS, St. John The Baptist GNS, Killea, Kilruane, Killenaule,Kilvemnon, Kilcash, Kilsheelan, Kildangan, Kilbarron, Lisnamrock, Lismackin, Lisvernane, Littleton, Loughmore, Mercy Convent Nenagh, Moycarkey, Mohober, Moyglass,Mount Bruis, Moyne, Mullinahone, New Inn GNS,Newcastle, Our Lady of Mercy Cahir, Presentation Thurles, Poulacapple,Powerstown, Presentation Carrick On Suir, Rossmore, Rearcross, Rosegreen, Rathkeevin, Sacred Heart Roscrea, Slieveardagh, St. Colmcilles Templemore, St. Patricks Borrisoleigh, Skeheenarinky, St. Josephs Templemore, St. Peters & Pauls Clonmel, Sisters of Charity Clonmel, St. Josephs Tipp Town,Scoil Ailbhe Thurles, St. Michaels GNS Tipp Town, St. Olivers Clonmel, St. Josephs Ballingarry, Templetouhy, Templederry, Tipp CBS, Tankerstown, Two Mile Borris, Upperchurch, Gaile NS, New Inn BNS, Boherlahan NS, Lisronagh, Kilross. As can be seen from the list, a large number of schools have yet to pay. With finances becoming increasingly tight, it is very important that all schools pay as soon as possible. Otherwise, you are playing as an unregistered school. The €30 Registration fee must be paid immediately if you have not already done so.
