All Ireland glory for Limerick schools   16/09/2014

Limerick schools enjoyed a successful night at the  Cornmarket Awards held in Croke Park last Saturday night. GAA President Liam O Neill, a primary teacher himself, was guest of honour and presented the prizes to the successful entrants. Also in attendance was Brendan O Sullivan, President of the Irish National teachers’ Organisation. Approximately 200 guests attended from all parts of Ireland.

The award for Best GAA School in the Small Schools category went to Doon CBS who were represented by Principal, Brother James Dormer. This is an award richly merited and the East Limerick school is renowned as a hurling nursery.

Brother Dormer also picked up another prize as he is editor of the Munster Cumann na mBunscol yearbook which won Third Prize in the Best Publication category. Brother Dormer, a Dubliner by birth, has been Principal of Doon CBS since 1993 and is Uachtarán of Allianz Cumann na mBunscol.

The Limerick youth magazine, ‘The Green and White’ won first prize in the Best Publication category, beating off opposition from Dublin Cumann na mBunscol. ‘The Green and White’, which is in existence since 1996, is edited by Ciaran Crowe, principal of Patrickswell NS, and Joe Lyons, who is principal teacher in Ballybrown NS. This is the eighth time that the Limerick magazine has carried off the Best Publication Award. Issue number 52 is currently being distributed to schools all over Limerick city and county.
