Last Saturday, Michael, Daniel and Eoin represented Meath Cumann Na mBunscoil in a football blitz in Louth. Each team played four matches against the other county. All went well as all the Meath teams won all their matches. 

We had a very enjoyable day.

Well done boys!  (Ed)


Many congratulations to the boys and girls of Second Class who made their First Holy Communion on Saturday at 10.00 am in our Parish Church.

The pupils and their teachers, Ms Dowling and Ms McGuone had been preparing for many weeks for this big occasion in the lives of our young people.

We are glad that everyone involved had a great day.

A special word of thanks to School Chaplain and Parish Priest, Father Derek Darby for his support and kindness to the pupils in Second Class and to all in Saint Mary’s!

Another word of thanks to everyone who helped us make it to this wonderful day, especially our Special Needs Assistants, Fran, Annette, Hilde, Aisling and Dairína for their help in preparing the artwork and decorating the Hall so beautifully. 

Sincere thanks also, to Sandra, Maurice and Joe for preparing the school, both inside and out and having everywhere looking so well.

Go Team Saint Mary’s!

It’s that time of year again!

Standardized testing is taking place at present so we ask that you try to ensure your children are at school for these days.

In particular, the weeks beginning, May 14th and May 21st have been set aside for this purpose.

For your information, we normally only test on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

We appreciate your cooperation! Thanks!


Bhíomar ag labhairt Gaeilge le linn na seachtaine seo mar táimid bródúil as ár dteanga féin!

Bhí tionól againn ar an Aoine, 16ú Márta agus bhíomar an-ghnóthach ar fad!

Bronnadh trófaíanna ar dhaltaí a rinne sár-iarracht an Ghaeilge a labhairt i rith na seachtaine. Seo iad thuas.

Bhí Tráth na gCeist againn ar an Aoine agus Dhá cheolchoirmeacha ar an Déardaoin.

Bhí na múinteoirí ag damhsa ós comhair na scoile !!!

Bhain gach éinne an-taitneamh astu agus bhíomar lán sásta leis an méid Gaeilge a bhí á labhairt ag gach duine le linn na seachtaine.

Leanfaimid ar aghaidh ag labhairt an Ghaeilge!

The hampers had tons of Easter eggs and also Book Haven vouchers, Melt vouchers and even Domino’s pizza vouchers!

The draw was held on Friday the 23rd of March.

Congratulations to the winners.

Well done to the Parents’ Association for organising this wonderful draw!

Girls’ Football Report

On the 27th of February 2018 the St. Mary’s Senior Girls team, pictured above, had their first match of the season.  This year our team is in the premier division after winning the final in Parnell Park last year.  We played Skerries, last years winners at home.  There was an extremely close first half played.  With both teams having scored there was close to nothing in it, but as the whistle blew unfortunately Skerries were in the lead. With some encouragement from our coaches we held our heads high.  Proud to be wearing our new girls  St. Mary’s jerseys sponsored by the Ashbourne Credit Union,  we put up another great fight.  As the match continued some snow started to fall which led to tougher conditions.  As St. Marys scored unfortunately so did Skerries.  So when the whistle blew for the last time that day sadly Skerries had just about won.  With our coaches proud of us we tried to look at the glass half full.  We were new to this division and we had such a close match against last years winners.  So overall a good start to the season.  The Skerries coach came over and praised us for our fight saying they were a tough team to beat.  With that he wished us good luck and that was that!

Well done girls!


Chess Winners Announced!

Pictured are the winners of Mr Ó Brádaigh’s Chess Club Competition, held recently. The standard of play was phenomenal and we applaud all the winners and runners-up. We’d also like to thank Mr Ó Brádaigh for all his mentoring of the children involved. Bravo!


Junior Infants were scooting recently.

Led by their excellent instructor Caroline, the children LOVED the experience, which is designed to give them the safety skills to scoot to school and other places with confidence.

Well done everyone involved in organising this initiative!

Recent snow pictures. Thanks Ms O’Connor!
