Chuir muid fáilte roimh roinnt scoltacha ó Thuaisceart Bhéal Feirste le go mbeidh blaiseadh ag na daltaí ar an iomáint/camógaíocht agus go gcuirfí le scileanna s’acu siúd a mbíonn ag imirt. Le seisiún scileanna, cluichí dúshlána agus soláistí bhreá curtha ar fáil, bhain na páistí taitneamh agus tairbhe as an lá. Buíochas mór le Croí Éanna, na múinteoirí agus páistí go léir as páirt a ghlacadh.

Buíochas mór le Croí Éanna, na múinteoirí agus páistí go léir as páirt a ghlacadh.
