Cumann na mBunscol Poetry Contest Success

Congratulations to our P7 pupil who was placed third in all of South Armagh for their entry in the 2017 Cumann na mBunscol Poetry Contest. Entries were asked to capture the essence of “GAA in my school” and I think this entry shows the importance of GAA in St Mary’s. The winning pupil also bagged themselves a new football and a £50 sports voucher!

GAA in My School


There is a lot of GAA,

In my school, that I like to play.

It was skills with Mags in P4,

She taught us how to shoot and score.


My headmaster was the coach of a winning team,

That achieved an amazing dream.

One of the teachers was a great goalie,

He helped his team win a trophy.


Turn off your phones and iPads too,

Go outside and enjoy the view!

Gaelic, hurling and that’s only a few

Believe me there is more you can do!


GAA Abu!
