A special “Reporter of the Week” link has been added to our website: The success of this competition is very much dependant on the response we get from the children in schools. I would encourage all teachers to have writing competitions and to pick a winning entry and submit it to Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol PRO John Manley of Dualla NS at I will then attempt to pick a winning entry.
