As everyone is probably fed up of hearing we are in level 5 lockdown!
In order for us to get back to training and enjoying our Sunday mornings where our children can get fresh air and exercise while making friends and having fun PLEASE
•Stay at home .
•Please adhere to all restrictions .
•Keep yourselves, your families and our community safe.
We have better days to come and the sooner the better.
Our coaches and admin are busy at the moment planning for these better days. Hope you’re all getting a few kicks in daily!

Due to Covid- 19 restrictions , our annual AGM will this year be held online via Zoom on Friday, January 15th 2021 at 7p.m.
Everyone is welcome to attend but you must register in advance. You can do so by sending your email address to Kathy.
The Zoom link for our AGM will be emailed to those who have registered 24 hours before the AGM.

Congratulations to members of our community who have been kept busy.
Preston O’ Keeffe won 1st prize in the Junior Individual category of the Social and Behavioural category for a project looking at possible Covid vaccine hesitancy in BT Young Scientist Expo.
Preston won a special award sponsored by IE Domain Registry for the study.

David Hughes won a Special  Analog  Devices award for Best Project in Technology along with two more young lads for their ‘ Adapted Spectacle System for Dementia Patients. ‘ They also received an award in the Technology section .
Well done to everybody who did so well – a great achievement by Kerry’s students.

Tricia Moran is both a juvenile and ladies coach in our club who does trojan work . Tricia has a heart of gold . No matter what age group Tricia trains the girls look up to her and have a great friend in her.

Tricia is jogging 56 miles for Pieta in February. Most of us probably know of someone who has had mental health problems or is still suffering. Tricia is raising money for a great cause and if you can donate anything at all it would be appreciated

Mental health is a very powerful and strange thing, giving a prescription for a week or so as if you had an infection doesn’t make it better. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple as it isolates the individual, not just the person who is sick but each person in their immediate circle is affected.

Each  person has a different way of dealing with it and each person is impacted personally and circumstantially. Places like Pieta help those crying out for help . Please support Tricia if you can . You can make any donation small or big on the link on her Facebook page or Kerins O’ Rahilly’s Facebook page or put something into the bucket in Moran’s shop in Strand Road. Thank you!

We have so much to look forward to in 2021.
In two weeks time we will have more news on the Gaelic4teens programme. We are really looking forward to this .
Féile is U15 this year so all of our U14s who were disappointed in 2020 because they missed out with the restrictions now have this to look forward to in 2021.
The format has changed this year.
Roll on the days where we can finally return to normality running out the door looking for our gum shield and boots like the good old days.
