Some of our members are currently working on producing a club website which shall be launched in the near future. If anyone has info or photos both old and new that could be used please email them to Kieran O’Hare at thanking you in anticipation.

The clothing bin at the playing fields has been emptied and will accept all items of clothing, handbags, footwear and bed linen but not duvet’s.

Any person wishing to take part in Scor Sinsear this year should give their names to Paddy McCrickard, Donna Rogan or Seamus O’Hanlon as soon as possible.

Child Protection Course Friday 3rd February from 7.00pm – 9.00pm: All coaches that wish to be involved with players must attend this course if they have not done so within 3 years. Please contact Seamus O’Hanlon to book a place on this course.

Foundation Level Coaching Course Saturday 4th February 9.15am – 4.00pm: Any coach wishing to be involved with any of the clubs teams must hold this certificate as an absolute minimum.

Any juvenile member of the club that would like to take part in a young whistler’s course to be run in late February-early March should contact Seamus O’Hanlon. This course entitles young lads or girls to referee primary school and Go Games matches, blitzes and tournaments. We are not going to force anyone that does this course to referee outside of the club and even if you have no intention of refereeing you should sign up for it as if for no other reason you shall learn the rules of the game. How many of you have ever seen a rule book?

Any young person wishing to seek employment in the Cúl Camps during the summer or seeking to work with a team as part of the President’s Award or the John Paul Award should contact Seamus O’Hanlon and seek a place on the courses outlined above.
