For the first time since 2017 Garrymore look forward to a Senior County Semi Final against Knockmore which takes place this Saturday, November 6th, at 7pm in the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence, Bekan. Best of luck to Harry and Patrick’s dad, Brian, who plays in goal and past pupils Justin Commins, Patrick Hession, Jamie Hession, Caolan Crowe, David Dolan, Mark Tierney and Enda Hession. Go n-éirí libh!
Well we have finally reached Summer with May day tomorrow and the bank holiday weekend to enjoy! On this weekend each year the WOI Women’s Mini Marathon takes places usually in Castlebar but this year like many other events it is happening virtually. The Mini Mini is the children’s fun run that is held at this annual event. Our class have been amazing in this year doing their 2kms therefore I registered them for this event and today at school we completed our 2km in our fabulous Mayo Day t-shirts kindly given to us by Mayo Sports Partnership with great help from Deirdre Donnelly. This year the theme for the fun run is ‘Kids just run for fun’.
If you are in a position to, your child can complete the fun run over the weekend and if you wanted you can make a donation of €2 to a children’s charity of your choice. I have provided a 2021 race number where you can write in the hero you are running for. Mayo Sports Partnership are asking that you send your pictures and videos in to them of you or your child taking part if you want to share in this great celebration. Pictures can be emailed or posted on Social Media using hashtags #Mayoday #WOIMM

“For the next hour, we advise the whole country move to level Gortskehy”
As part of our Creative Schools initiative 3rd and 4th class were presented with the opportunity of creating a radio show. We worked very hard with Jojo Hynes, our creative associate and Claremorris Community Radio. We started by brainstorming ideas and began the creative process of putting radio pieces together. We learned how to make radio reports, how to present items for radio and how to structure an hour of radio. We covered everything from the news and weather to farming to the sports desk and everything else in between. We also included some seasonal pieces as it was being aired on Christmas Day 2020.
We would like to thank Jojo Hynes and Claremorris Community Radio for giving us the opportunity of a lifetime. We had great fun putting this together and we hope you enjoy ‘Gortskehy Radio’ as created by 3rd and 4th Class. We definitely have a few budding radio stars in our midst here in Gortskehy National School.
Our Christmas prayer service, featuring pupils from all classes was broadcast live from Carras Church which looks absolutely fantastic and is a credit to all involved. Happy Christmas everyone.
This video was produced especially for the residents and staff of Hollymount Nursing Home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we had fun making it. Nollaig Shona!
