Schools took part in a ‘sticker competition’. For every €30 spent at Aldi, the shopper received a ‘sticker’ of an Irish rugby player. The aim for each school was to fill the sticker booklet.

Former Irish rugby international and all-time great Paul O’Connell announced the winner over RTE radio this morning.

“This year has presented huge challenges for parents, teachers and students alike and it is highlighted I think the importance of sport for our well-being irrespective of our age. 

“Congratulations to all the schools that took part and I am sure the €50,000 will be well spent by the schools management to help with the development of their school’s sports facilities,” O’Connell said.

Two primary schools won top prizes; both Tara Hill National School, Gorey, Co. Wexford and Scoil Naomh Bríd, Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow won €50,000 each to help upgrade their school’s sports facilities. An additional €10,000 was given to another ten schools, which brought the total to €200,000.
