Tá fáilte romhat chuig nótaí Céirín O Rathaille,  serving our community for many years.
With all of our prizes from our Halloween prize draw for each member of our Juvenile Academy nearly delivered it is time for us to start planning Christmas.
What have we planned ….. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and club notes to find out more. Think we heard talk of Santa ….

The GAA is changing the age  gradings  of underage games from the old U14, U16 and U18 to a new U13, U15, U17 system.
Our U13 and U15 management for 2021 will be announced before the week is out and new what’s app groups will be set up for parents.
Programmes for these age groups will be put in place as soon as possible.

This Christmas with Covid -19 restrictions, it is more important than ever to support small Irish local businesses . Think of them and you doing your Christmas shopping. When we are fundraising it is these people who support us.

Please adhere to government level 5  and HSE guidelines, on reducing your travel to within 5km unless for essential purposes , washing your hands, keeping your distance and abide by the current restrictions.

We are still here to help.

We would like to reiterate and  to continue our message that we are here to help. In light of the ongoing concerns and impacts on our daily lives over Covid- 19 , we would like to reassure everyone in our community that we are here to help.
The health and well-being of everyone in our community is so important to us. Please ask if there’s anything you need whether it be to chat or do shopping etc. we are here to help .

Great news ! Féile is switching to U15 for 2021 instead of the traditional U14 level which has been in place all along bar one year  since it was established in 1971.
This brought delight to many an U14 who didn’t play Féile this year because of Covid. Some say it was the best news they’ve heard all year while others danced around with joy!
This decision was made not because of this year’s cancellation but to try and retain teenagers in GAA and give them all an opportunity to travel outside their own county bounds. It won’t be the overall winners travelling!
Roll on Féile 2021 and hopefully riddance to Covid!

Louise Quill , a member of our local community and from a well known family to us in Strand Road began working in Tanzania in 2006. She saw a great need for a facility that would provide a family unit for the abandoned and orphaned children. Louse founded Tír Na nÓG to provide a home to nurture children in a safe and loving environment as everyone should have.
Louise continues to transform their lives and became known as their ‘ Kilimanjaro Mama.’
The award winning and uplifting documentary ‘Kilimanjaro  Mama’ will be launched on You Tube this Friday, November 20th at 8p.m.
Well done to Louise and everyone involved for the sacrifices you make. You have changed the lives of many people.

We have some club gear in stock. For more details you can text or what’s app Shirley (086) 8713552.

Very little to talk of this week……
The big news is that our girls born in 2006 haven’t lost out on a Féile year – something for everyone to look forward to in 2021 and changes have been made too so it will even be more fun!

Keep up the good work, continue to be vigilant and protect yourselves and everyone in our community.
