Sports Quiz 2015

Sports Quiz 2015


Congratulations to Breaffy, Castlebar on retaining their quiz title with superb answering to secure a winning score of 57 out of 60 correct answers. An extraordinary standard given the difficulty of many of the questions. They were closely followed by St. Pat’s B.N.S. Castlebar, with Dooagh N.S. coming all the way from Achill to give an excellent account of themselves in 3rd place.  Our thanks to all the teachers who gave of their time to prepare their teams and also help out on the day. Our thanks to The Welcome Inn for their facilities, as ever and finally to Quizmaster Seán Mac Éil for delivering the questions. Our local sports quizzes will return next winter and our county quiz will be around the same time again in 2016 so get your thinking caps on and start memorizing those sporting facts!

2014 AGM

Cumann na mBunscol Maigh Eo AGM 2014


Thank you to all who attended last night’s AGM in Mayo Education Centre.

A full list of newly elected officers and local area secretaries is available on our contacts page.

Thank you again to all who have contributed to the working of Cumann na mBunscol Maigh Eo in any way over the past 12 months. A list of events for the year ahead is online on our calendar page. Hurling fixtures will issue in due course.

Finally, we hope see re-launch rounders across the county, initially at local level. You might begin playing in your own school and then consider meeting a neighboring school for a game. The full rules are available to download here.  Depending on uptake, we will look at running a county wide competition (but we need some assistance please!).

Rounders Rulebook

Don’t get too caught up in pitch dimensions, go straight to page 13 for playing rules.

Rounders starter packs, including bats, are available for free from Cyril Feehily (087) 2566657.

Christy Ring Cup Semi Final

Mayo v Kerry | Christy Ring Cup Semi Final

Saturday May 31st – McHale Park – 1pm

Our county hurlers have reached the semi final of the Christy Ring Cup for the first time in six years and fortunately have been granted the home venue. The boys are just one game away from a Croke Park showpiece.

This is a great opportunity for all Mayo GAA supporters to get out and support this fantastic group of players over the long weekend. Many of these players began their careers at Cumann na mBunscol level and we’re very proud of all they have achieved so far this year.

Go n-eirí libh, Maigh Eo abú!

Teams who win their semi will need to submit an article for the county final programme, some people submit it before they play the semi!  But I need to give you advance notice as it will be needed immediately after your semi final for the county finals programme, otherwise you won’t be in the programme. You could have it ready anyway.
It is to be 100 words or less and to include a little biography of your school and / or a history of your previous involvement in Cumann na mBunscol finals or area finals or your path to the final this year or famous past pupils etc…

Also with the article please include an exact numbered team list of your players and subs as they will tog out on the day. If you are in 2 finals please send 2 seperate teamlists. You may wish to write 2 slightly different articles. 

Please forward to Walter Cox by email

Please send this ASAP, by May 31st at the very latest or the printer will not accept it.
