Quiz on tomorrow Friday 3rd December at 7pm….Link below
Cork Ladies Gaelic Football Association are hosting an online Family Quiz this Friday December 3rd at 8pm. Steven Lynch has kindly offered to help me host the online quiz on behalf of the CORK LGFA. I recently attended a Ladies Football Final at Bishopstown GAA Club and while I was there the Air Ambulance landed on the grounds of the GAA club. I was told by a member of the Club executive that this was the 6th time the Air Ambulance had landed in Bishopstown GAA grounds that week. I was amazed to learn that Cork University hospital hasn't a landing area and patients are ferried from the Bishopstown GAA club to the hospital. The Air Ambulance provides a hugely important and essential service for people in the Cork area and it needs funding to ensure this service remains in place. Many lives have been saved thanks to the Air Ambulance service.
There are many wonderful prizes up for grabs in this quiz. I would be grateful if as many families as possible can support the quiz and raise money for the Air Ambulance service.
Please find the link below to purchase a ticket for the quiz. A link will be sent to all participants at 7pm on Friday evening so it's really important to log on to your email at 7pm and get set up for the quiz which commences at 8pm. Family ticket is €20.
If you need any further information please call: 0874443780
Looking forward to seeing you all online on Friday evening.

Mar is eol duit, is Óg Eagraíocht í Chumann na bhFiann atá ag freastal ar óige na hÉireann le breis is caoga bliain anuas le deis a chur ar fáil dóibh an Ghaeilge a úsáid i dtimpeallacht spreagúil. Déantar seo tríd Óg Chlubanna seachtainiúla a reáchtáil ar fud na tíre, mar aon le himeachtaí réigiúnacha agus náisiúnta.
I mí Eanáir 2021, chuireamar tús le hÓg Chlubanna Fíorúla do lucht na nGaelscoileanna sa cheantar agus d’éirigh thar chinn leo le 14 Chlub nua bhunaithe agus aiseolas fíor dearfach ó shuirbhé na dtuismitheoirí. Reáchtálfar na Clubanna seo go hiomlán trí mheán na Gaeilge, agus bíonn teorann de 12 ag freastal ar gach club le rannpháirtíocht gach duine a chinntiú.
Tá Cumann na bhFiann ag athoscailt na gClubanna seo ar an 28 Meán Fómhair 2021 le rogha Chlubanna seachtainiúla ar an Máirt, Déardaoin nó Aoine do pháistí i Rang a 4, 5 & 6. Tá gach eolas ar fáil faoin teideal ‘Cumann na bhFiann’ ag www.cnb.ie
Tugann na Clubanna seo deis bhreise do dhaoine óga an Ghaeilge a úsáid ar bhonn shóisialta, agus cairde nua a dhéanamh.
Má tá aon cheist ag Múinteoir nó Tuismitheoir faoi na Clubanna, ní gá ach teagmháil a dhéanamh liom ag an seoladh thíos.
As you know, Cumann na bhFiann is an Irish Language Youth Organisation who have been providing opportunities to young people for over 50 years to use their Irish in a fun environment. This is done through running weekly Youth Clubs all over the country, along with various regional and nationwide events.
In January 2021, we began running Virtual Youth Clubs online for pupils of Gaelscoileanna in the area with 14 new Clubs formed and very positive feedback from our parents’ survey. These are run entirely through the medium of Irish, and each club is limited to 12 people to ensure full participation.
Cumann na bhFiann is re-opening these Clubs on September 28th 2021 with a choice of weekly Clubs on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for children in 4th, 5th and 6th classes. All information is available under the ‘Cumann na bhFiann’ tab at www.cnb.ie
These Clubs give young people the opportunity to use their Irish in a social setting, and help them make new friends.
Should any Teacher or Parent have any questions regarding these Clubs, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the address below.
Ag súil go bhfuil sibh ar fad ag coinneáil slán.
Le gach meas ort,
Shauna Ní Shé
Cumann na bhFiann

I would be obliged if you could please share information about Cork County Library Summer Stars and Summer Arts with your teachers and parents.
I have attached the July 2021 newsletter from the Cork County Arts Office and there is lots of information about workshops and activities for children that will be running during the school Summer holidays in this.
We would ask you to encourage as many children as possible to sign up for this Summer Reading scheme at their local Cork County Library branch and if you could share the following information with your school communities:
Summer Stars 2021 has launched in Cork County Council Library and Arts Service. Call to your local library branch to get a reading card and record the books that you read during your Summer holidays. Even if you read just one book and return the completed reading card to your local Cork County Council Library and Arts Service branch library you will be entered in a raffle at the end of Summer and have the chance to win some great prizes. All children throughout Cork County are invited to join the adventure and enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and writing over the Summer. Summer Stars is non-competitive. Every child who reads even one book/ e-book is regarded as having completed the programme and will be entered in a raffle at the end of Summer with the chance to win some great prize and it’s all completely free!
