Posted on : May 26, 2016

This year’s Seachtain na Gaeilge was a particularly successful one. It coincided with Proclamation Day and the 5th year students who took the project on managed to put together a varied and entertaining  programme, so much so that they emerged as the winners of the Comórtas Bedell – the Bedell Cup. This is a National competition which sees schools from all over the country competing for the top prize for the promotion of the Irish Language in schools. Sligo Grammar School entered their Seachtain na Gaeilge project and won first prize. they received a cash prize of €250 as well as the Bedell Cup. The committee members were: Leah Wasson, Eoghan Walsh, Andrew Wood-Martin, Cameron Hill,  Sara Bourke, Rachel Carter, Amy McSharry and Jamal Nugent.  Thanks go to teacher Mrs. Collette O’Donnell for all her help and encouragement.  Comhghairdeas!
