FOOTBALL COUNTY FINALS
As is often the case with the Irish weather it didn’t exactly cooperate with us as we tried to timetable and play our Football Finals this year. Many schools played their finals last week while many more are still itching to take to the field and claim a county title for themselves. The best of luck to all schools who play finals this week and comhghairdeas to schools who have won county titles in their respective divisions. Hopefully the weather will be more cooperative this week.
FOOTBALL FINALS REPORTS
All schools are asked to forward match reports of their county final matches. Team photos should also be submitted. These will be published by our media partners in Tipperary in the coming weeks. Friday 4th December is the deadline for all match reports and team photos to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools are encouraged to send in material. It is a great PR source for schools and a great encouragement for students to see their names in print.
NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL QUIZ
The 2015 North Primary School Quiz will be held in the GAA complex Cloughjordan on 29th Nov @ 6pm. 4 per team, 10Euro per team. Schools can have a max. of 2 teams. Entries to Cora Moroney 087 6388039 email@example.com or Liam Hogan 087 2425229 / 067 24488 firstname.lastname@example.org
CAHIR GIRLS ARE COUNTY CHAMPIONS
Our County U13 Football B Championship final took place on the 16th of November in Cashel. Rosegreen NS was our opposition. We were so proud of reaching the final and it was a lovely day for a game of football. We were leading at half time after a great team performance but we knew we had to continue playing well in the second half. Great goals were scored by Aisling Burke and Niamh Costigan. Our defence was rock solid and kept us in the game. Wonderful heart and determination was shown by our full panel of players. We were thrilled when the final whistle went and we celebrated with our supporters. It was great to see the shield coming to our school as it was our first time in many years to win a final. We would like to thank Rosegreen NS for a sporting game. We would also like to thank everyone from our school who came to support us and believed in us. It was encouraging to hear the chants from the side-line. We would especially like to thank Ms Doherty, Ms Duggan, Paddy Caplice, Joanne Noonan, Alan O’ Connor and Damien for training us and helping us to come this far. It was a day we will never forget. We were presented with our medals at a special school assembly. By Shannon Kennedy, 6th class.
A full list of registered schools for both this year and next year has been forwarded to all schools. Please ensure your school is registered with us. Registration is €30 and is vital for the continued successful operation of Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol activities. Please not registration is from January to January and does not follow the school year.
Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol would like to wish Lar Corbett, Shane McGrath, James Woodlock and Conor O’Mahony all the best as they retire from senior intercounty hurling.

As the football season begins schools are reminded of the importance of mudguards for all children participating in Cumann na mBunscol matches. Both boys and girls playing in Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Gaelic Football fixtures must wear mouth guards without exception at all times. It would be advised that schools would also use mouth guards when training to allow children to get used to using them and to follow best practice.
REPORTER OF THE WEEK
Schools are reminded and encouraged to send news and updates of their progress in the football championships for the coming season. Reports can be a great writing topic for the classroom and are an opportunity for children to see their work published for a wider audience. In the pre-season championship build-up children could be given the chance to tell about their own training regiments and tips for the coming championship. A Reporter of the Week will be chosen and their work included in the weekly report. Please ensure all reports are a single paragraph in Verdana 10 type. All submissions should be proof-read by the teacher before submission.
