Sciath na Scol
Updated 04/09/05


Ovens National School has been taking part in the Sciath na Scol competition for many years. Sciath 
na Scol is a sports tournament that is held every year among primary schools.  There are many
 competitions within Sciath na Scol - boys and girls Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie, and is
 supported by the GAA (The Gaelic Athletic Association). All schools are encouraged to take part.

Our training takes place at lunch times, football from September to November, Indoor hurling from December to February, hurling / camogie from March to June. Our games usually start between 
2.00pm and 3.00pm and arrival home depends on distance travelled. (Parents drive us to matches 
for which we are very grateful)

Several of our talented players and proud supporters have written their
very own accounts of the matches this year. Click on the 'next' arrow below
