Shortlists announced for Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol Awards   29/01/2020

Thurles is renowned as the birthplace of the GAA. Michael Cusack and Maurice Davin, teachers both, were among a group who met in Hayes’ Hotel on November 1st of 1884 and founded the Gaelic Athletic Association.

The Anner Hotel in Thurles will host  the 2020 Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol Awards Banquet on Friday March 6th

‘The Cornmarket Awards Banquet is invariably a night to remember,’ says Mairéad O Callaghan, who teaches in Glenville NS, Watergrasshill in Cork and is Uachtarán of Cumann na mBunscol. ‘The Awards give schools of all sizes and backgrounds the opportunity to display their wares. They are the perfect platform for teachers involved in Cumann na mBunscol to showcase their work. Whether you work in a large urban school or a small rural school, there is something for you. Success in the Awards is not defined by winning silverware but by promoting Gaelic Games in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment. As well as recognising excellence, the Awards Banquet is an occasion for colleagues to enjoy themselves and meet friends from all corners of the country.’

'There was an extremely large number of entries for the 2020 Awards', according to Cumann na mBunscol Runaí, Gary Farrell, 'and the standard of entries is getting higher each year. The judges spent a long day poring over entries last weekend. After much consideration, the shortlists in each category have been announced. I want to stress that these are listed in no particular order.'

It promises to be a night to remember!
