Shortlists announced for Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol Awards   28/01/2019

The clock is ticking. It's a little over five weeks to the Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol Awards which will take place in the Sligo Park Hotel on Friday March 8th. It promises to be a great night. 

'This year saw a very high number of entries across all categories,' according to Gary Farrell, who is Leas Rúnaí of Coiste Náisiúnta.'We had a number of new categories. INTO sponsored an Award to mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of the union in 1868 while there were two awards to mark Bliain na Gaeilge. There was a very healthy number of entries in the customary categories. All in all, very high participation from schools throughout the country.'

The judges had the unenviable task of whittling down the large number of entries to a shortlist in each category. 

'The list of projects which have been shortlisted is designed to keep excitement at fever pitch right up to the moment when the winners are announced,' according to Bernadette Ryan, Cathaoirleach of Cumann na mBunscol. 'Even the members of An Coiste Náisiúnta don't know the winners in the various categories.'

As we said at the outset, It promises to be a great night in Sligo.
