Two Monaghan schools have joined an initiative organised to support Ukrainian schoolchildren to participate in Gaelic games.

The initiative, between Allianz and Cumann na mBunscol, has provided 26 schools nationwide with footballs, hurleys and sliothars to help Ukrainian refugee schoolchildren fall in love with our national games.

These two Monaghan schools have welcomed in seven of these Ukrainian children.

In total, the twenty-six participating schools will help 383 Ukrainian schoolchildren join local Gaelic game activities across the country.

It's hoped that through this campaign, these schools will play a key role in helping Ukrainian schoolchildren integrate into their local communities through the national sport.
