School note October 6th


Dear Parents,

                    I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                    Last Saturday, Ballybrown NS were victorious at the Ard Scoil Rís hurling Academy blitz. Michael Gavin was named Player of the Tournament. It was our first victory in this event. Thanks to all parents who attended on the day and especially to Mr Lordan who has coached these players through the years.

                     The boys and girls play their last round of group matches in Under 13 football next week.

             Head Lice: Head Lice are a common problem in any environment where children assemble. It is advisable to deal with this as soon as possible.

For information on dealing with this problem, see

Gach dea-ghuí,
