Allianz Leitrim Cumann na mBunscol

Finals were due to be played on May 23, 26 & 30. Due to the weather, many games were postponed and our leagues, which should be finished last week, are - in some cases - half-finished. Finals will be postponed to allow schools to complete their leagues. Please have all of your games played by Friday May 24. When leagues are complete, fixtures for the finals will be circulated.

The fair play awards are in their third year this year. They will be held in the Bush Hotel (date to be confirmed). They celebrate fair play, good sportsmanship, positive attitude and favourable behaviour. Please send in your nominations with your results. The Allianz Cumann na mBunscol commitee would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your participation in our competitions
