St. Pat’s Victorious at Allianz Tráth na gCeist


Bhi craic agus ceisteanna againn i Lynhams oíche Déardaoin seo chaite. Over one hundred pupils from all over the county made the trip to Laragh for the annual Allianz Cumann na mBunscol, Tráth na gCeist. Lynham's did brilliantly to accommodate us again as the event continues to grow in popularity year on year. Twenty-seven teams competed across eight rounds, racking their brains to dredge up past players, managers and generally obscure knowledge. In the end, St. Patrick's NS, Wicklow Town came out on top for the first time in well over a decade. They scored a total of 59 points on the night. Second place was decided by a tie break question, as both Roundwood NS and Kilcoole PS were tied on 57 points, and it was the Roundwood school who pipped it. A huge thanks must go to the schools who donated ever so generously to our raffle, with a huge haul of GAA equipment, and the odd bit of chocolate being brought home by many young pupils. The teachers present on the night were flat out handing out the prizes, on top of collecting, correcting and updating the scores. Tá buíochas ar leith ag dul dóibh as a gcúnamh. Finally, thanks to all the parents who brought the young stars to Laragh, on a dark and uninviting November evening. Go raibh maith agaibh as bhur dtacaíocht leanúnach.
