Cumann na mBunscol National Awards

19th Mar 2018

Major success for Darkley Primary School as we are awarded third place in the prestigious Cumann na mBunscol Cornmarket National Awards. The entry was in the largest category of submissions ‘Promotion of Gaelic Games and Culture – Schools’ and was evaluated by a judging panel in Croke Park before making the final shortlist of nominations. The award ceremony took place in Kilkenny on Friday 9th March and Mr Meehan and Miss Conlon represented the school in attendance. Our school was awarded third place on the night and are thrilled with this astonishing achievement. To receive an award at this level when competing against schools throughout Ireland is a remarkable achievement. It is a true reflection of the hard work and commitment of all our staff. Furthermore, we are extremely grateful to all the coaches from the Ulster Council, Armagh County Board and Keady Michael Dwyers GFC who work tirelessly hard to develop and refine our children’s sporting skills. The award is also a reflection of the vibrant music and language initiatives that take place within the school. We are very grateful to Mrs Marian Corvin, Keady Arts and Heritage Society and Fast Trad for their support in these areas throughout the year.
