Restrictions and guidelines remain in place due to the Covid 19 crisis. Phase 2 is due to come into place from Monday June the 8th and hopefully we will see the lifting of a number of the restrictions. Unfortunately our club grounds do not have a designated walk way, so we are unable to apply for any opening of the grounds to the public. We would just remind you that the clubhouse, gym and playing field are not accessible to the public at the moment, however those involved in the maintenance of the grounds can be in attendance once the guidelines are been adhered too.
Collective training is not allowed at the moment, but we do know that plenty of skill and fitness training is going on at home from our senior players down to the underage groups. Keep up the good work folks. A number of our Under Age groups were involved in an online skills challenge hosted by Monaghan GAA coaches over the past 4 weeks. Thanks to all those who took part and a reminder to return your filled in skills sheets to the coaches highlighted on the Club messaging service.
It’s Good to Talk
A reminder that, Monaghan GAA in conjunction with The Monaghan Age Friendly programme have launched the “It’s Good to Talk” initiative .
The programme will identity people who would like to have a chat with a player or member of the management team about the GAA and will send their number to a player who will give them a quick call at their convenience. A chat about all things GAA will lift the spirits of someone who is finding this time challenging and lonely.
We invite our Club members to nominate an elderly family member be it a father / mother /brother / sister/ grandfather / grandmother to receive a call from a player or management. Contact Mary McEneaney Assistant PRO Monaghan GAA on 0876887332 or email@example.com to set up the call to celebrate a birthday , an anniversary or just to have a good GAA chat . Don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Tommy’s Troops – The ALA
Details of a regional meeting of the Anti Litter Army (AKA the ALA) is documented under the Village notes, but just a brief update that a number of new fronts have been opened up on the litter front with volunteers having great success in ambush and tactical attacks across the community and parish. Hi Viz ALA volunteers have been spotted on a number of roads and routes as the constant war against litter wages on. It is a credit to Tommy’s Troops the work that they have done in the past few days and weeks. It really is amazing and frustrating in equal measure the amount of litter that can be gathered up in such a short space and it is very disappointing to see that in some areas that have been cleaned, there has been a gathering of litter once again. Please take your rubbish home with you, there is no excuse for discarding it at the side of the road. Further new fronts and attacks on the scourge of litter is planned, so as always volunteers are welcome and can make themselves known to Brigadier General Tommy Mc Cormack.
