Child Protection Update

Thanks to everyone who attended the child protection update. Just one of the many things that goes on behind the scenes. Thanks to Ashleen McCaul from Derry GAA for presenting the course.

The club is commited to setting the best standards from all our selfless volunteers, through support with training and education, and having processes in place as required by law, and in line with guidance from Ulster GAA.

This ensures the best and safest possible environment for our young people to flourish and develop to be the best they can be.

If you are a volunteer or coach and your training needs updated let the coaching officer know and we can arrange further learning opportunities.

The futures bright…..

This years Annual Bazaar will be held in the St Martin’s GAC on 9th December at 7:30.

Big prizes to be won, and grand prize to be announced on coming days, so keep an eye out for updates.
