Selskar College was recently announced as one of 159 winning post-primary schools across the country to receive jerseys and equipment for their teams as part of Lidl Ireland's newest initiative which sees €250,000 invested in a nationwide schools campaign in 2019.

Since January, Lidl customers have been voting for their local schools by entering the ten-digit unique code found at the end of their till receipts.

Selskar College was also announced as one of 26 schools selected to take part in the #SeriousSupport programme, created in association with the Ladies' Gaelic Football Association.

The winning 26 schools will go on to take part in this brand new programme delivered by L.G.F.A. county level players which will show girls the benefits of playing sport both on and off the pitch, aiming to reduce the drop-off rate in sport participation amongst girls aged eleven to 14 years.

The #SeriousSupport programme is part of Lidl's ongoing support of and investment in ladies' Gaelic football. Congratulations to all the winning schools!
