After-School Gaelic Football

After-school Gaelic Football for P6 and P7 will resume tomorrow (Thursday), with this being, “Boys’ Week.” Next Thursday will be “Girls’ Week.” Parents will have a copy of the information sheet that was sent home before mid-term, as permission slips, which have been returned to school, were detached from this sheet. Pick-up times, gear needed, dates of boys / girls’ sessions etc. are all listed on this information sheet. Please keep it for your reference. We look forward to a good turn-out tomorrow!

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol South Armagh Quiz





Nineteen teams from thirteen different schools took part in the South Armagh heat of the 2019 Cumann na mBunscol Armagh Quiz in Silverbridge GAA clubrooms this morning. After ten rounds, St Malachy’s PS Camlough ran out winners on 53pts. Runners-up were the children from St Patrick’s PS Cullyhanna (51pts) and in third place was St Patrick’s PS Crossmaglen on 50pts. When the results are collated with the north and south region, the top two teams from the county will progress to the provincial final. Well done to our own team from St Mary’s who came in fourth place.

Thanks to Michael and Arthur from Silverbridge GAA for the use of their facilities and for setting out the room. Also, a big thanks to Mr Benny Tierney for taking care of proceedings as quizmaster and to all of the teachers in attendance for helping with collecting answers, marking and giving out refreshments.

Gaelic 4 Girls at Mullaghbawn CLG


Thanks to Tracy Fitzpatrick from Mullaghbawn CLG for coming in to school before mid-term to inform all of the girls in P4/P5/P6 about the upcoming Gaelic 4 Girls programme. A lot of hard work has gone into securing this programme for our area and it’s a great opportunity for girls who haven’t played Gaelic before.

There will be a registration event this Wednesday, February 27th @7pm in the clubrooms and the action gets underway on Saturday, March 2nd @10.30am.
