Registration 2023

As the registration deadline has now passed it is vital that outstanding membership fees are paid this week for all players from Senior to U5 level.
Failure to have a valid membership for 2023 may preclude players of all ages from taking part in games and/or training sessions and/or use of club facilities.
Membership is also due for club officials and coaches of any age group.

In order to qualify for cover by the GAA or LGFA Injury Benefit Fund a player must have a fully paid playing membership on Foireann prior to the injury occurring. The respective Injury Benefit Funds are self-funded entirely from the GAA and LGFA funds with no outside involvement. The Injury Funds are not an insurance scheme. The Injury Funds are set up to assist members with some reimbursement for medical expenses incurred due to an injury sustained playing Gaelic football.

The respective Injury Benefit Funds do not seek to compensate fully for injuries sustained but to supplement other Schemes such as Personal Accident or Health Insurance. The GAA and LGFA Schemes only provide cover for unrecoverable losses up to the limits specified under the respective Schemes. More details can be viewed on or

Any player, parent or coach having difficulty completing the membership process is asked to contact the Club Registrar Fiacc Murphy on 087 6437848

Foireann Mobile App

A Foireann mobile app is now available, and this is the only official membership and communications app for GAA, LGFA and Camogie clubs. The app is available for both iOS (via the Apple Store) and Android devices (via Google Play). The Foireann Mobile app makes it even easier to manage your Foireann profile and all the ways you interact with the Club. We ask all members to download the app as it will make it easier to manage membership, update contact details and keep up to date with team activities.

The Foireann membership and communications app is fully integrated with the Foireann membership system – members can log in on the app with their existing Foireann account to see upcoming events which includes event details for anyone in your Family. The app also puts news, fixtures, and results in your pocket so you can stay up to date with the most important and relevant information.

Foireann is the GAA system used by clubs to manage membership and it allows members to register for membership and pay online using the Mobile app or the Foireann system at

Under 5 boys and girls had a fun energetic session on the astro turf on a beautiful morning. They worked on agility, balance & coordination through evasion & weight bearing fun exercises all to develop their movement patterns. Ball skills are coming on well with some great kicking on display.

Keep practicing with a soft ball / balloon at home to get the timing of the kick.

More are always welcome! Very well done to our enthusiastic player of the week duo Jack & Robyn! Gooo St Pats!!

A great week for our U9’s, firstly we travelled west to An Gaeltacht Tuesday evening in big no’s to play in our first Go Game of the year. We played 3 fantastic games of football against our hosts. Sunday morning all the lads were back in training and had a great session working on their skills and in particular the pick-up! Well done to Darragh Moriarty who was this week’s Player of the Week.

The boys travelled to Ballyduff last Thursday and played through some miserable conditions to put in a gritty performance. Both games had different challenges but everyone put in an excellent effort. Sunday’s training had much better weather and gave us a great opportunity to work on our skills. The training match was a great contest and our new player Sean made an immediate impact with his effective marking and effort.

Our next game is away to Listry on Thursday.

We train again on Sunday at 12pm in Blennerville and remember to keep practicing skills at home.

Conor Sheehan and Jack Cashman made a great impact off the bench and Jamie Bowler was an unused sub but has been scoring heavy for the B team who had a big win vs Kenmare on Friday 21st, where Rodhan Culloo was also outstanding.

We wish Gary Scollard a quick return from injury.
