JERRY WALSH RIP – SCIATH NA SCOL CHORCAÍ

It was with a heavy heart that we recently learned of the passing of our esteemed Sciath na Scol Leas Uachtarán, colleague and friend Mr. Jerry Walsh, who went peacefully in the company of his family, to his Eternal Reward on 13th June. Fágann a imeacht scamall dubh an bhróin orainn go léir go raibh aithne ar an laoch misniúil seo.

Jerry had a private family funeral, in accordance with current guidelines, but his passing will be sorely felt in Sciath na Scol, as well as Cumann na mBunscol nationally, for the long and loyal service he has given us since he began teaching in Scoil Réalt na Maidne, Ballyphehane, in the late 1960’s.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Connie, his children Maurice, James and Anne Marie and all his extended family.

School Spotlight - G.AA in St. Colmcille’s


St. Colmcille’s Primary School is a senior boys Primary School in the town of Templemore in Co. Tipperary. St. Colmcille’s has 114 boys and has a very proud tradition in G.A.A. The school has been the nursery for some fantastic G.A.A stars in recent times such as Eamon Corcoran, Colin O’Riordan, Paddy Cadell, Lyndon Fairbrother and Andrew Ormond. These past pupils along with many more have helped the school rise from a Roinn D school in 2010 to a successful Roinn A school in 2020. 

The approach in St. Colmcille’s is all about participation and enjoyment and from the time the children join the school in 1st class they are exposed to Gaelic Football, Hurling and Rounders weekly. We are very fortunate to have a coach supplied to us by our local J.K Brackens G.A.A club who takes our 1st, 2nd and 3rd class boys every Friday for G.A.A training. 

The boys from 4th, 5th and 6th then train every Tuesday and Thursday between 3 and 4 pm with our teachers Mr. Denis Kelly and Principal Mr. Conor Doyle. Our boys contest a school league in both codes for the right to be crowned winners of the Brendan Maher cup which is a miniature Liam MacCarthy cup gifted to us by Tipperary hurler Brendan Maher who was presented with the real Liam MacCarthy Cup as captain of the victorious Tipperary All Ireland winning team in 2016.
