CUMANN NA MBUNSCOL – THE STORY SO FAR

Cumann na mBunscol was established in 1971 with the aim of developing as a National body to promote Gaelic Games in Ireland’s Primary Schools. For its first decade it was concentrated in Munster and Leinster but now has Coistí in all thirty-two counties and in Britain. From its minimalist beginnings it has developed a profile from the very local to National levels, becoming the largest sporting organisation within Ireland’s Primary Education sector. It has also achieved a position of respect within the GAA, educational, business and government sectors.

Structure:

Cumann na mBunscol works with a formal Constitution and has a structure that reflects that of the GAA overall within County, Provincial and National level. Each County has its Management Committee, elected annually at an AGM of all participating schools. Provincial Committees are in turn elected by Counties on an annual basis. Finally, a National Committee is elected annually by delegates from the Counties and the Provinces.

Role and Remit:

The role of Cumann na mBunscol is to promote, in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment, the National Game of Ireland within Primary Education. It works across a full spectrum of Gaelic Games: i.e. Boy’s and Girl’s Football, Hurling, Camogie, Rounders and Handball. In also promoting Athletics, Cumann na mBunscol holds true to the focus of the founders of the GAA. It has a market base of almost 2 900 Primary Schools across Ireland. As former President, Mary McAleese said: ‘On a September Sunday in Croke Park, when we watch the cream of hurlers and footballers, male and female, it is worth reminding ourselves where it all starts, where the seeds are sown. Cumann na mBunscol can lay claim to a significant part of the credit for the dynamism which typifies Gaelic Games all over Ireland’

HURLING COMPETITIONS

Our Hurling Competitions commence after Easter. We wish all schools a peaceful Easter Break. We look forward to receiving many reports on these games from children after Easter.
