Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile Road Sign

The Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile Road Sign is pointing the wrong direction and the bolts holding it in place appear to be fully tightened so it cannot be easily moved back.

Can we get a volunteer to stop by the sign with some tools and adjust it so it points in the right direction again?

Just be careful as this is a very busy corner!

Thank you


Hurling training has finished for now, as the weather will be getting too cold and wet. The Sciath na Scol hurling games will be in March 2014, so keep training in the meantime!

STARCAMP is an award winning Performing Arts network that has been running nationwide summer camps since 2007. It has a proven track record and an outstanding reputation amongst performing professionals, teachers, parents and children alike. STARCAMP is aimed at all boys and girls of all levels aged 4 to 13 endeavouring to transform your children into the most confident, self-assured, conscientious and caring children that they can be. Not all children are sports orientated, hence ‘Starcamp ’offers an exciting and fun-filled alternative. Our long term goal is to increase our link in the chain of combating bullying and mental health issues which unfortunately in our modern day world seem to be more prevalent. The general consensus is that Starcamp has an incredible effect on children’s confidence and personality even in one week.
