Gach bliain eagraíonn Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise Comórtas speisialta i rith seachtain na Gaeilge chun an Gaeilge a chur chun cinn I méan scoileanna Eaglais na hÉireann.

Sé an tainm atá ar an Comórtas seo ná Comórtas Bedell . Ba easpag Kilmore é William Bedell sa 17 iú aois agus b'é an céad duine a d'aistrigh an Bíobla go Gaeilge. Bhain Scoil Chuimsitheach Ashton amach an dara áit sa comórtas i mbliana. Ag tionól sa scoil le déanaí bhronn an tUrramach Tony Murphy teastas ar múinteóirí gaeilge na scoile.

Each year Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise (The Irish Guild of the Church) organises a special competition during Seachtain na Gaeilge to help promote the use of the Irish Language in Church of Ireland second level schools.

The competition is named after Bishop Bedell, a 17th Century Bishop of Kilmore, who first translated the Scriptures into the Irish language. This year Ashton Comprehensive School won second place in this competition. At a recent assembly the Reverend Tony Murphy presented a certificate to the Irish teachers in the school.
