The second national celebration of GAA Go Games took place the week of April 4th-11th , Monaghan celebrated the occasion with it’s first round of GoGames blitzes to coincide with the weeks events. The U10’s where first out this year with a round of blitzes taking place on Saturday the 11th of April at 6 different venues (Killanny, Clones, Sean McDermotts, Monaghan Harps, Currin and Oram). In total there was 28 clubs represented with over 500 children taking part throughout the day. It was great to see a large turnout of clubs and players alike. Every child really did ‘Get A Go’ as the slogan says!
This Saturday (18th April), the U8’s are out in action. Like last week there are 6 different venues (Killanny, Clones, Sean McDermotts, Monaghan Harps, Killeevan and Oram).
Just like every year there are a new group of Young Whistlers applying their new roles as referees at the blitzes. It’s great to see new referee’s trying to learn their trade at this level and we hope a large proportion of these referees can progress to Juvenile Referees in the coming years.
Monaghan Coaching & Games would like to say thanks to all the host clubs for organising each blitz, we know the amount of time and effort that goes into running a GoGames blitz and we like to thank everyone that helped out in anyway possible. The blitzes would also not be a success without the clubs showing up, so once again thanks for your ever increasing support of this initiative and we hope to see it grow and prosper throughout the year.
