Do you (or tyke/s of yours) go to primary school?
Could it use a ‘sports facility makeover’?
Does a bear do his thing in the woods, sez you ( a bit rudely).

Aldi and the IRFU have today announced the return of the Aldi Play Rugby Sticker Competition, which will once again give every primary school in the country the opportunity to be in with a chance of winning one of two €50,000 sports facility makeovers.
As well as two primary schools winning €50,000 to put towards upgrading their sports facilities, this time around, 10 runner up primary schools will each win €10,000 to also spend on improving their sports facilities.
In addition to this, all primary schools in the country will be sent two initial posters from Aldi – with return label – to help them to kickstart their sticker collection.
Enter your primary school here.

Tesco are opening a new budget range to compete with Lid and Aldi [in the UK]. They’re calling it Jack’s – not sure it’s the best name? Do you think they’ll bring it to Ireland?
