Fixtures for football and ladies football have been forwarded to all schools. Please take note of the dates by which matches are due to be played and try to stick to these dates to ensure finals can be played before the Halloween break. Ádh mór le gach duine as you prepare for the upcoming fixtures. 

The GAA's Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee would like to invite the members of Cumann na mBunscoil and all those involved in Primary Schools GAA to attend the upcoming Concussion Symposium which will take place in Croke Park on Saturday October 8th. There is no admission charge, however please note spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The County Board Officers met with SH manager Michael Ryan and Games Development personnel this week to discuss All Ireland Cup visits. Conscious that all our senior inter county players are in full time work or colleges, their availability will be very much confined to their own local area.

Based on this the following is the procedure for club and school cup visits;
Clubs must first discuss a visit to your local schools with the local Co Games Development Administrator (GDA) as they have the responsibility of co-ordinating cup visits for clubs and schools.
Priority will be given to clubs and schools who had players involved in either All Ireland SH or MH panels but the onus will be on those clubs and schools to have their own local county players available so a date will have to be selected to suit them.
The Games Development Officers will sit down on a weekly basis and plan the schedule of visits for the following few weeks based on expressions of interest.
Clubs without a member on the panels may avail of a cup only visit, but the onus is on the club to secure the services of a panel member to accompany the cup if they are in a position to do so.

As the football season begins schools are reminded of the importance of mudguards for all children participating in Cumann na mBunscol matches. Both boys and girls playing in Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Gaelic Football fixtures must wear mouth guards without exception at all times. It would be advised that schools would also use mouth guards when training to allow children to get used to using them and to follow best practice.
Schools are reminded and encouraged to send news and updates of their progress in the football championships for the coming season. Reports can be a great writing topic for the classroom and are an opportunity for children to see their work published for a wider audience. In the pre-season championship build-up children could be given the chance to tell about their own training regiments and tips for the coming championship. A Reporter of the Week will be chosen and their work included in the weekly report. Please ensure all reports are a single paragraph in Verdana 10 type. All submissions should be proof-read by the teacher before submission.
