Scolireachta Gaeltachta & Seachtain na Gaeilge

[b]Scol?ireachta? Gaeltachta[/b]

There were a large number of applicants for the Leitrim Co. Board GAA Gaeltacht Scholarships and a very high standard among the youngsters who attended for interview. Indeed if there were twice as many scholarships there would have been enough worthy candidates.

The successful candidates were:

Stiof?n Mac Tadhg. Droim M?r, B?al an ?tha M?ir

Cl?r Kilcrann, Corlaskagh, Coill na gCros, Cora Droma R?isc

Maeve Canning, Mullaghbrack, Maothail

Caoimh?n ? Riag?in, Sr?idbhaile Liatroma, Cora Droma R?isc

Bu?ochas do na buachaill? agus na cail?n? go l?ir a chuir isteach ar na scol?ireachta? agus comhghairdeas do na Buaiteoir?.

[b]Seachtain na Gaeilge Quiz[/b]

Leitrim representatives, Bornacoola, [b]won[/b] the Connacht Finals of the Seachtain na Gaeilge Quiz which was held in Roscommon last Wednesday. They now go on to the All Ireland Finals, which will be held in Croke Park on St Patrick?s Day.

[b]Two teams from each province qualify for the All Ireland finals but this is the first time in the three-year period since the quiz started that a Leitrim team got out of Connacht.[/b]

The Bornacoola team that won the Connacht Final was made up of Aidan Dockery, Liam Rabbitte, Evelyn Reynolds and Marie Therese Dockery. Two of the team that won the Leitrim final, Cyril Staunton and Padraig Duffy, were not available for the Connacht Final and were replaced by Aidan Dockery and Evelyn Reynolds. Indeed Bornacoola will have difficulty in picking their team for the All Ireland Finals.

Comhghairdeas do Bharr na Cuile ar a mbua agus go n-?ir? leo i gCraobh na h?ireann ar L? ?L? P?draig
