A number of free courses / training options have been identified which may be of interest during the COVID-19 crisis. Click here for more info.
The following update issued today from the GAA: A chairde, I wish to draw your attention again to our previously issued guidance document of March 20th. We advised you that, until March 29th, games and training were suspended, club gyms were to close, and Player Injury Fund cover was suspended. We subsequently instructed that club bars should also close for the period............
We are all hugely proud of the significant role that the GAA plays in Irish society and the positive impact made at Club, school and County level through our promotion of our native games.
However, with that role comes responsibility and never has this been more evident than in recent days, and the decision taken to suspend all GAA activity, matches and training at Club, school and County level across all grades and codes until March 29 inclusive.
Here, Uachtarán CLG John Horan and Ard Stiúrthóir Tom Ryan spell out the GAA’s position and our request to all of our members to do the right thing and to play our part.
Win a Subaru
In May 2019, the Roscommon Gaels All Stars team was launched. This was a team for children with additional needs who came every week for the entire summer to learn to kick a ball, swing a hurl, to play and above all have fun. This was a hugely successful, feel good initiative for all involved – the children, the parents, the volunteers and of course, the club itself.
In August 2019 the Club entered the initiative into a Spórt TG4 national competition to promote an aspect of the club that everyone was proud of. The hard work paid off when the club won the overall first prize which was a new Subaru Impreza. We are very grateful to Spórt TG4 & Subaru Ireland for running the competition it has been a huge boost to our club.
One of the rules of the competition stipulates that the winning entry must raffle the car to raise funds for the club. All monies raised will be invested to purchase specific equipment for our All Stars team and to continue to develop our facilities for the 33 teams we field. To conclude, while All Star awards are hard to come by in many counties, in Roscommon Gaels there is one group of little All Stars the whole club is very proud of.
