Dualla National School Cashel received 1st place in Ireland at the prestigious National Cumann na mBunscol Awards held at the Oriel House Hotel Cork on Friday night. The school produced a hard back book full of historical articles, colour photos, match reports, etc. which chronicled the school’s journey in Gaelic Games over a seven year period.
The school will also be honoured at a special ceremony in Croke Park at the end of April where they will meet GAA president Aogan O’ Fearghail. Part of the prize will also see 37 children in Rang 3 – 6 given an all access stadium tour of Croke Park with lunch thrown in for good measure! This year’s national awards success for Dualla NS follows on from previous national awards success in 2010 & 2012. 2015 also saw the school make history in winning a first ever county hurling title when they were successful in U11 hurling.
