Firstly, during this difficult time its fantastic to see so many people pulling together and our community spirit shining through. Usually in difficult times we come together and meet and socialize but its this very thing that we cant do is probably having the most profound effect. Stay in contact, ring people you havent in a while. Pick someone new every day. Connect and reconnect.
We have a great First responder active group which many people have volunteered for.
We are looking for Teachers in the club who will volunteer for online sessions those preparing for exams, any tradesmen who can help those at home. We have a directory of services, if you can assist, please contact Caroline Butler
If you need assistance, reach out in confidence.
Our club is closed to all training, games and social kickabouts.
Children are not allowed play or socialize on club grounds in any way. Do not allow your children to come to the club and put our staff at risk who have to approach them to ask them to leave. If you are seen in the club in the evening on pitches you will be asked to leave. Remind your children of this.
Our grounds are not for dog walking. There are some members who are disappointingly just not getting this message.
Our Club bar and function rooms are closed to all activities. Club Lotto is frozen. The club Easter camp is cancelled. All Feile competitions are cancelled. Nationwide, all GAA activity is cancelled.
All until further notice.
