Knockskeagh – GAA 5 Star Centre

Knockskeagh now a "GAA 5 Star Centre"

It was with great excitement and delight that we received the ‘GAA Five Star Flag’ as a result of the children’s participation levels in camogie, Gaelic football, and hurling during the school year 2018/19.  We are now recognized as a GAA 5 Star Centre. 

The children have and will again be taking part in Gaelic Games activity in a manner that they will experience fun, friendship, fairness and ultimately improve their fitness.  Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sì.

We would like to thank Paudie Crowley for his assistance in coaching Gaelic games in the school.
