We're into May. It's getting tiresome, I know.
Your Club Update
May 7th, 2020
We didn't expect to be here in May
At this point in the Corona crisis, the government have issued guidelines for getting back to "normal". While it referred to sporting events, I'd be reluctant to quote them here; All plans are subject to change and will be driven by new cases, recovery numbers and the like. The GAA have issued some initial guidelines; as an executive we're planning on digesting and making sense of them before informing the members more. So, please bear with us folks. The better job we do now, means the quicker the return to normal will be.
As last week: All club activities remain off. The club is closed until further notice. 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 pro@stvincentsgaa.ie.
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.
No Lotto this week, on account of the bank holiday.
Next week's lotto jackpot is €1,750.
You can now play online with a quick online payment of a debit or credit card here. Thanks to all those who picked up a new subscription.
PNU2: Tresspassing is prohibited
We've mentioned over the last number of weeks that our grounds are closed and should not be used. Specifically, our all-weather pitch, PNU2 is locked. Despite this, we've had reports of people playing on PNU2.  In order to access PNU2, people have had to climb over a fence.  Members should be aware that this is trespassing and the club will take a very dim view of this.
Members found to be tresspassing on PNU2 will be subject to a ban, and any bans imposed will commence upon our return from lockdown.

And finally..
Thanks to Dermie Conroy, who sent in this image.  It's an U14 squad from hard-to-tell-when.  Dermie described it would appeal to people "of a certain vintage". 
His words, not mine. Here's a higher res version
