We've had some people asking recently, so just to confirm that the lights are still turned on in club grounds each evening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., to allow people to go walking or running there. We just ask that you please observe social distancing, and take all the other recommended precautions too.
An outline by Jamie Dunbar of the club's Player Pathway Programme, currently in development, wa the highlight of last night's Coiste na nÓg annual meeting. Jamie outlined how he and others are currently working on putting together the document, which is aimed at setting out a "whole of life" approach to how people can be part of the club, from the moment they first come to play hurling and football in the nursery to how they can become involved in coaching and/or administration when their playing days finished.
It's hoped to launch the Programme in the coming months, and it is to be regularly reviewed and updated as the years go on.
Coiste Chairman Peter Nolan also spoke at the meeting, to give an outline of hopes and plans for the year ahead. There were almost 40 people in attendance, and the enthusiasm was plain to see.
Our Coiste na nÓg annual meeting will take place online next Friday night (January 15th), via Zoom. The starting time will be 7.30 p.m., and we expect things to be wrapped up within an hour or so.
Anyone who wishes to join in can mail Coiste na nÓg chairman, Peter Nolan, to request the meeting log-in details - you can get him at email@example.com
We've already got managers lined up for all underage teams for the coming year, but it would be great to hear from parents and other interested in underage matters too.
Unfortunately, we’ve had to suspend our lotto again, due to the latest Level 5 restrictions. Anybody who had already bought online for forthcoming draws will have their entries carried over whenever things resume. Let’s hope that won’t be too long!
