COUNTY FINAL DATES
Dates and venues for the football county finals will be sent to schools this week. In as far as possible all requests for dates for specific schools county finals have been accommodated. Any school who has difficulty will have to organise a time/venue for themselves if they cannot play on the specified times.
TIPPERARY ALLIANZ CUMANN NA MBUNSCOL FOOTBALL FINALS 2014
Officers would like to wish all schools who have booked their places in the county finals for next week the very best of luck. A great deal of time and effort has been put into bringing teams this far and a spot in a county final has been the reward of that hard work. All schools are encouraged to forward team photos and match reports of the county finals. These will be published by media partners and will be a great sense of pride and accomplishment for all schools and pupils involved.
RULE CHANGE REMINDER
All schools are minded that 45’s can now be taken from the ground or from the hand in football. This rule was voted in at Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol A.G.M. in January 2014.

As the football season begins schools are reminded of the importance of mouthguards 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 mouthguards without exception at all times. It would be advised that schools would also use mouthguards 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.
