Do you want a Gaelscoil for the Ballinamore area?

Moves are afoot to try to establish a Gaelscoil to serve the South East Leitrim/West Cavan area that would be based in Ballinamore.

Moves are afoot to try to establish a Gaelscoil to serve the South East Leitrim/West Cavan area that would be based in Ballinamore.

A Gaelscoil in Ballinamore would, potentially, serve the Ballinamore, Aughnasheelin, Aughawillan, Corlough, Templeport, Drumreilly, Carrigallen, Aughavas, Cloone, Mohill, Fenagh and Kiltubrid areas.

At present there are two very successful Gaelscoileanna , in Carrick on Shannon and in Manorhamilton.

A public meeting will be held in the Ballinamore Seán O’Heslin’s GAA club on Thursday 7 November at 8pm to discuss the proposal. Parents of children from the above-mentioned areas who would be due to go to school in the next one to three years are especially asked to attend this meeting.

Anyone with an interest in the subject is welcome. The benefits of having a Gaelscoil will be outlined.
