Health & Wellbeing News
1. Defibrillator Training Classes
We are making arrangements to run Defibrillator Training Classes (DATES TBC in next weeks newsletter) and we urge as many club members as possible to attend.
2. GAA Mental Health Charter
The GAA’s Mental Health charter is a policy document that helps clubs develop a culture that supports and promotes positive mental health.
The resource is designed to reinforce the GAA’s GIVE RESPECT GET RESPECT initiative’s positive message and transfer it into the world of mental wellbeing.
It outlines a club culture that is inclusive and open and one that holds the following values clear.
• Respect : Everyone in the club will respect the rights, dignity and worth of each person, regardless of ability, age, culture or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, or religious belief.
• Encouraging : The club will ensure that everyone is treated equally, fairly, and encouraged to do their best.
• Supportive : The club will ensure that all members are aware of and encouraged to use the support system that the club and its varied members provide.
• Positive : Everyone’s positive contribution to club life is recognised and we understand that every member has an important role to play.
• Enabling : We will create an environment and atmosphere within all club activity that enables all members of the Association to maintain as well as develop their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
• Considerate : Everyone within our club will be listened to and be given an opportunity to contribute to express their opinions without reprisal or judgement.
• Tolerant : An element of discipline will underpin our club to ensure that our games are controlled and that values such as honesty, equality, and fair play are promoted at all times.

U10’s & U12’s
This was a Day out for the Roscommon Gaels U-10’s and U-10’s Footballers and Hurlers to promote the Values that lay within the Club grassroots of the GAA. It was a very memorable day for all Kids and Adults alike, with the trip starting out on the famous Club Rossie Bus, which was great excitement for all.
The 15 minute walk to Croke Park from Mountjoy Square was a sight to behold, with Roscommon Gales flags been held aloft, much to the bemusement from the rest of the onlooking supporters. There was great banter between supporters and the Guards on duty outside Croke Park. After a quick visit to the Croke Park Museum, we made our way to our seats in the Cusack Stand.
To great excitement from our Roscommon Gaels crew, TJ Reid( 3 Times Hurling All Star and current Kilkenny Captain), Mick Fennelly (Ballyhale Shamrocks Captain) and the legendary Marty Morrissey came over to us for pictures and banter.
With great wins for both Ballyhale Shamrocks and Corofin, it was a fantastic experience for all who attended. We finished the day off with a treat in Supermacs in Maynooth, who were extremely accommodating and friendly.
Our youth in Roscommon Gaels left dreaming of some day having the same outing again, except this time they will be players and not supporters. Hopefully there dreams will come true!
U12 Football is back we had our first session last week, due to the pitches been waterlogged we trained in the Hyde.

Good luck Joanne with the season ahead.

Junior Co. League Rd 3: Roscommon Gaels 0-8; Oran 3-5.
Our third Junior League outing saw a much improved performance against Oran today at Rockfield. Oran were 7 points ahead at half time but we should probably have enjoyed a decent lead facing into the wind, and rain, which would have changed the complexion of the game if we hadn’t so many wides. Oran made better use of their chances in the second half to run out winners on the day. Credit to both sides who gave it all in a game which stretched energy levels to the limit. After one win, this was our second defeat in the league but all is not lost and we look forward to the upcoming fixture against Kilbride.
Please support all our teams as they compete in their various fixtures – it’s so important to all the players to see lots of support and encouragement on the side-lines – no matter what their age :-)!! – It really does make a difference.
Especially the home games – what better way to pass an evening or morning – stroll up to the pitch, bring the kids and enjoy the fresh air while supporting your club.
Serious Support for all our players – don’t forget the club colours :-)
