A number of local businesses are now open again as part of the phase 1 lifting of restrictions & we would ask our members to shop local where possible.

While they can't train together at the moment our Ladies Football & Camogie players from U16 to Adult have committed to running the equivalent of a marathon each during May to keep fit & active while at the same time raising funds for Jane's House in memory of Jane Dardis. Jane played Camogie & Ladies Football from Juvenile up to Adult level & also gave back to her club by coaching at our Academy/Camps so this is a cause very close to our hearts. We are conscious that there are a lot of fundraisers taking place both locally & nationally at the moment for different causes but would be grateful for any donations no matter the amount.
