We look forward to seeing you all on the night .
Hard look to our minor team who lost out by only 3 points in the county semi to Fethard on Saturday last. Well done to the team who had a great game but Fethard proved to be the stronger team on the day.
Scoil Teampall Toinne Parents Council would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported their table quiz on Saturday, November 17, in the Doolis Inn. A big thanks to Sean and Breda Kearney for the food and very generously sponsoring first prize. Thanks to Billy Macken our brilliant quiz master on the night as ever Billy was very professional at his job. Well done and thanks to his able assistants Miriam Macken an Helen Brennan, thanks also to Andrew Macken for sound and music on the night, a very special thanks to our very generous sponsors both near and far, local businesses were particularly generous and deserve to be supported especially during these difficult times and we are very grateful for their support. The night was a great success and this was down to all the parents who gave up their time and came along on the night and indeed the very hard working committee who made the night a success. It’s a new committee but already they have shown their are 100 per cent committed, well done to all of you. The money raised will go towards the cost of the Christmas pantomime and indeed other school activities. Our school calendar should be on sale next weekend at a cost of only E8, or two for E15. These would make a lovely Christmas present for a loved one and a wonderful keepsake.
