Underage Training

Well done to the U12 Boys who reached the shield final at the recent Errigal Ciaran tournament. The boys eased past teams from Down, Armagh, Monaghan, Derry and Tyrone throughout but were very unlucky to lose to Derry team Swatragh by a point in the final.

We would like to wish them at the Loughmacrory tournament this Saturday.

Health and Wellbeing

#littlethings chosen as theme for 2016 GAA/HSE Health and Wellbeing Day.
The GAA and the HSE are working in partnership to bring the messages of protection, resilience and support for mental wellness to local communities.

Both organisations are keen to increase their efforts to normalise the conversation around mental health. In this regard the GAA has selected the 2016 GAA Health & Wellbeing Theme Day, this year’s second All Ireland Football semi-final taking place in Croke Park on August 28th, as another way to promote the HSE #littlethings using the strap line “Little Things can improve your game”.

The #littlethings campaign highlights that we all experience difficult times in our lives, and that when we do, there are some evidence-based little things that can make a big difference to how we feel.
Particular #littlethings messages have been selected for the All Ireland semi-final that have the most connection and relevance to the GAA sporting community such as: keeping active, eating well and there’s strength in numbers. (‘Ní neart go cur le chéile’ is the GAA motto).
