The Gradam Gaisce Scoile, the G.A.A. Schools Flag is awarded to acknowledge and reward schools for their excellence in the promotion of Gaelic Games. The ‘Red Flag’ was launched and raised in Scoil Mhuire na nGrást by Sliabh Rua coach Darren Mc Carthy, on our Sports for all day in May 2013. Our school has achieved a high standard in a variety of areas including training, planning, furthering links with the community and the promotion of Gaelic Games to earn the flag. Scoil Mhuire na nGrást has enjoyed a long and proud tradition of hurling, camogie and football. We achieved extroardinary success that particular school year in reaching our third Sciath na Scol final! Thanks to the pupils, teachers and coaches for their dedication. We are very proud recipients of this special flag.
