Our juvenile club should have hosted our third annual “Donal Walsh Livelife Memorial Tournament “ two weekends ago. Unfortunately that wasn’t possible this year.
Donal , a wonderful young man had a message for everyone “to cherish life and live life”. Donal inspired a nation and beyond.

On May 12th, 2013 Donal reached “ God’s Highest Mountain.”
Donal’s anniversary Mass was celebrated in St. John’s Church last Sunday and will be shared on our Facebook page on Tuesday.

Elma, Fionnbar and Jema want to mark Donal’s anniversary in a fun way this year since we’re all stuck indoors and want to set you a challenge!
Donal made a fun video with his friends and they want you to recreate this video in your own way!
You can view Donal’s video on our Facebook page or Donal Walsh #livelife.
Please send your videos and on the 12th we will share all the videos we get in!
Challenge rules:
Tag people you want to also take part in it.

Since the publication of the Road Map for reopening the country by the government the LGFA are seeking clarification on the guidelines and some of the issues that have arisen in relation to sport.

As everyone is  aware the GAA will remain closed until July 20th as part of the efforts to prevent gatherings which might breach the restrictions set out by the government. They have set up a Covid-19 Advisory Group which will advise on return to play protocol etc. and the LGFA will work closely with the GAA in relation to all these matters.

In light of the current situation the following changes are being made to registration dates for the coming years;
•1st August 2020
•1st July 2021
•1st June 2022
•1st April 2023

Over the coming weeks we will be in touch with everyone who hasn’t paid registration to arrange a final payment date to allow us to lodge and register as this takes time. Thank you to everybody who has already paid.


We hope that every player and their family will join in this weekend. Don’t forget to register.
