Limerick Schools Sweep the Boards in Thurles

2020 Cumann na mBunscol National Awards

Thurles hasn’t always been a happy hunting ground for Limerick followers but both Herbertstown NS and Kilbehenny NS were placed first in their categories at the 2020 Cumann na mBunscol Awards, sponsored by Cornmarket Financial Services. The Awards Banquet took place in the Anner Hotel one week before the country was effectively locked down due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Kilbehenny NS was named as Small School of the Year while Herbertstown NS was winner of the category for Promotion of Gaelic Games and Culture. Limerick won another title when The Green and White magazine was once again named as Best Publication.

Kilbehenny NS, located on the border of Limerick, Cork and Tipperary, was placed second in the Small School Category last year but the school went one better this year and was named as Small School of the Year for 2020.

A Major New Book

A Message from the National Executive
(Cumann na mBunscol Náisiúnta)

A number of events are being planned to mark the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Cumann na mBunscol in 1971 as a single national organisation to promote Gaelic Games in primary schools.

One of the events is the publication of a book to mark this fantastic milestone in our history. Cumann na mBunscol as we know it was founded in 1971. Joe Lyons and Ciarán Crowe have agreed to take on the task of writing this history of Cumann na mBunscol. Both have been involved in Cumann na mBunscol for well over 30 years. They are joint editors of The Green and White, a magazine which is produced 3 times each year and delivered to every primary school in Limerick city and county.

Shane Dowling

All Star, All-Ireland winner with club and county, Shane, has announced his retirement from intercounty hurling.

In a glittering career with Na Piarsaigh, Dowling has claimed an All-Ireland in 2016 as well five Limerick SHC titles and four Munster crowns. In the Limerick colours, Shane has won an All-Ireland senior medal in 2018 and Munster Championship medals in 2013 and 2019. Awarded an All-Star in 2014, he was a member of the Limerick Under 21 team that were Munster champions in 2011 and picked up a National League medal in 2019.

Shane’s intercounty career has ended all too early but he has already embarked on a career as a pundit, both on TV and in print.
