Editors Note

This is the third and final Newsletter of the 1998-1999 School year and the Parents Activities Committee would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all the parents who have helped in whatever way during the year -
library duty, yard duty, faith friends, school tour assistants, games helpers, fund raisers, contributors and all other activities which go to make St. Cronan's the progressive school it is.   
We wish the 6th Class boys (and their parents) all the very best of luck in the post-primary education and hope that they will always have fond memories of their time in St. Cronan's.

Come on you Reds! (?)

All hail the conquering heroes.  St Cronan's gaelic football team have won the 1999 North-East Wicklow Primary Schools Division 1 Championship. 
Under the keen tutelage of Mr. Barry the team have gone from strength to strength and now keenly await their opponents in the semi-final of the Coughlan Cup
.  All this comes after the great performance earlier this year when they were narrowly beaten in the final of the INTO 7-a-side competition by Rathnew.  Mr. Barry takes great credit for the work he has done with the boys and he would be the first to acknowledge the excellent foundation work that has been done by Gordon Loughnane and Helen Flanagan in the school over the past couple of years.   It is great to see the boys getting an opportunity to compete against the rest of the county and the winning of trophies is an added bonus. 

The team consists of boys from 6th 5th & 4th Class which augurs very well for the coming years.  The team will be playing in their traditional (and uniform) blue from next year so for the last time "Come on you Reds".
