Chin up. Stay off the grass!
Your Club Update
April 22nd, 2020
Chin up, and we'll press through
We continue to be on lockdown. I know this is not easy. The withdrawal from gaelic games is a tough one. And who knows if there'll be any sport this season. We won't speculate. We'll continue to watch goverment guidelines, and we'll report on any updates which come from County, Provincial or National level.
All club activities remain off. The club is closed until further notice. So, not much to report. If there is anything of interest, I'll be sure to put something out on our social channels Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
if you want something included in the club notes, all you have to do is drop me a mail at
Continuing to help those in our community
Our volunteer team is now actively helping a number of people on a regular basis at this point. Individual volunteers have been assigned to those who have seeked help to give them a sense of security and familiarity.
If you or a family member is in need of assistance, simply call or text Aoife Drumgoole on 087 947 6626 and she will co-ordinate one of the volunteer team to respond.

Members: We need your help
Despite the club being closed, we've had continued use of club facilities by members. A reminder folks:
1. The club is closed, Our facilities are not available for use. Whilst we appreciate the need to get out to stretch the legs, and get some air, we are using this time to give PNU1 a much needed rest, so ask you to remain off the playing and training areas.
2. PNU2 is also fully closed. The gates to PNU2 are locked. Please do not enter PNU2 for any reason until futher notice.
3. In the normal course of events, pets are not permitted on our playing and training facilities. Whilst the facilities are not in use at the moment, we still want to keep our facility free of pet waste. Please clean up after your dog. 
Folks: We ask all of our members to be diligent, and to stress this to younger members of your family.
