Dear Parents,

BLOG AWARDS IRELAND 2013

Our school website/blog was recently shortlisted for a National Award at the upcoming Blog Awards Ireland ceremony. The blog made the final sixteen and we were delighted to be the only primary school in the country to make this shortlist. Unfortunately, we did not make it on to the final shortlist of six this year. We might have better luck next year! Sincere thanks to all the parents who posted comments to the website recently. It was much appreciated.

 

ATHLETICS SUCCESS

Third – Sixth class pupils took part in the County Tipperary Cross Country championship this week. All our athletes ran superbly. Our four teams performed heroically to finish just outside the medal spots. Fourth Class pupil Eoin Moloughney brought home a silver medal in the 800m 3rd/4th Class boys race. Well done to all the children who participated on the day.

 

CUMANN NA MBUNSCOL

Well done to our Senior Footballers on their comprehensive victory over Ballycahill NS last week. Our under 13 girls Football team travel to Littleton on Tuesday, October 8th for a blitz. Transport will be required. Our young Under 11 Footballers also travel to Littleton on Tuesday, October 15th for a football blitz. Transport will also be required on this day.

 

PARENTS ASSOCIATION

I would like to sincerely thank outgoing Parents Association Officers Maria Gleeson (Chairperson), Joan Kennedy (Secretary) and Ann Coffey (Treasurer) for the sterling work they carried out during the past number of years. They brought great enthusiasm and commitment to their roles.

I wish incoming Dualla NS Parents Association officers Audrey Moloughney (Chairperson), Secretary (Emily Nash) and Karen Swan (Treasurer) the very best for the next few years.

They will be assisted by committee members Joan Kennedy, Yvonne Toomey, Carol Raymond, Geraldine Hickey, Grace Ryan and Marian Gleeson.

 

REFERENDUM

The school will be closed tomorrow Friday October 4th as the school is to be used for voting in the abolition of the Seanad referendum.

Player of the Tournament Páraic Brosnan captained the Runners Up Cork who gave a fine account of themselves all through the league.

The 3rd/4th Place Final saw Brendan Lawrence’s Limerick Team defeat a fine Tipperary Team who were captained by teak tough defender Eoin Power. Please God the Tipperary Hurlers will have more luck in Sunday’s League Final!!

Dualla NS & Golden NS Share The Spoils

Filed under Hurling

Dualla NS & Golden NS renewed acquaintances in Dualla today for the second time in two months.

This Under 11 Hurling Challenge match was played in glorious sunshine as the two teams readied themselves for the Under 11 Championship which starts in a fortnight.

Dualla NS got off to a flying start with Callum Lawrence notching 1-1 in the space of a few minutes. He quickly followed this up with another goal when shooting low and hard to the right corner of the net.

Up front Eoin Moloughney was also very industrious in a productive opening half for Dualla.

Dualla led at the interval by three points. The second half saw Golden thundering into the game and soon they were scoring at will. Only for heroic goalkeeping by Pádraic Flanagan, the game would have been over.

Páraic Brosnan & Brendan Lawrence began to get the upper hand in midfield as the game approached its final minutes.

A few wonder strikes from star forward Callum Lawrence saved the day thus ensuring a share of the spoils for Dualla.

Special thanks to Golden for coming over to us for the game today.

Well done to all our players today.

Player of the Match: Páraic Brosnan.

The Dualla NS Squad was as follows: Pádraic Flanagan, Eoin Power, Páraic Brosnan (Joint Capt.), Callum Lawrence, Brendan Lawrence (Joint Capt.), Eoin Moloughney, Aisling Moloughney, Ava Ryan, Nicole Kennedy, Hannah Hughes, Anna McCan.
