Activities will take place on grass pitches so football boots are advised.

The aim of the day is to introduce both children and teachers to rounders as it should be played, according to official GAA rules

We hope to run Cumann na mBunscol competitions/blitzes this coming spring. These will be run along similar lines to our football competitions i.e. organised locally, with areas coming together for county semi-finals and finals. We will need a teacher in each of our areas to co-ordinate a local blitz.

If you are willing to volunteer to organise rounders in your area, please let me know.

I hope you all have a very enjoyable day!

Le meas,

Danny Charlton
