Presentation to Colaiste Raithin
The pupils of Colaiste Raithin were delighted recently to receive their new set of camogie jerseys which they received having been drawn from the 33 schools who participated in the Leinster Junior Schools Novice initiative in May this year. Teacher Maire Ni Nuanain was thrilled to now have a set of camogie specific jerseys and is already entered to attend a 1st/2nd Year blitz in November for their first official wear. The school were thankful to Leinster Camogie for their sponsorship of these and for being included in the development initiative ran by Sabrina Larkin to get camogie active within their relatively new school. Wicklow County Camogie Development Officer, Breda Donnelly, attended on the day also for the presentation.
