It is my privilege to welcome you to our Cumann na mBunscol page. Moneynick Primary School embodies the spirit of the Cumann na mBunscol philosophy to promote Gaelic Games and our Irish culture and heritage and in doing so connect with our local schools, local GAA clubs and Cumann na mBunscol community.

History of Cumann na mBunscol

Cumann na mBunscol took its first steps as a national body in 1971 and is now a thriving, vibrant organisation with activities in all 32 counties of Ireland and beyond.

The Cumann na mBunscol Constitution states that the philosophy of Cumann na mBunscol shall be to promote Gaelic games in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment and to make Gaelic Games the games of choice in our Primary Schools.” This has been their mission for over half a century and the organisation has gone from strength to strength during that time.

Cumann na mBunscol or, as it was known then, An Bord Eadarchathrach, was founded in 1971 by a group of forward-thinking teachers involved in promoting Gaelic Games in their own areas. Those visionary teachers saw the potential to organise on a countrywide basis. Today,  Cumann na mBunscol promotes Gaelic Games - football, hurling, camogie, girls football, rounders and handball - in primary schools in all 32 counties of Ireland. Competitions/activities are provided for all types of schools from large urban schools to small schools in rural Ireland.

Cumann na mBunscol promotes active and healthy lifestyle choices among schoolchildren, it offers equal opportunities to boys and girls and epitomises volunteerism. All activities are organised by teachers for primary school pupils. At a time when awareness of anxiety among children is becoming more evident, Cumann na mBunscol promotes wellbeing among children. In many counties, Cumann na mBunscol organises athletics and quizzes, cross–country running or basketball.
