Under the guidance of Ms. Orla O'Connell and
Garda Tim Burke the schools and pupils in the area are playing
a very valuable and positive role in the organisation of
this major event.
Orla, has visited most of the schools outlining the activities
and the commitment of the young athletes involved in the
games, their preparation, the pleasure they gain from the
training and participation in their respective sports. The
joy and happiness they bring to themselves and their families.
Tim Burke has also visited most of the Primary
Schools in the area outlining the requirements for the Torch
Run, he also has had the full co-operation of the Principals
and pupils, and in fact they were thrilled with the idea.
The transition year students from both St. Mary's College
and Naas CBS have agreed to distribute this Newsletter -
thanks girls and boys or should I say young ladies and gents.
We would also like to express sincere thanks
to Dave Cahill, woodwork instructor St. Patrick's Post Primary
College, Naas and his students for their assistance with
the presentation plaques.
