Monday the 19th of July saw the beginning of Monaghan Coaching and Games 4th successful week of Cul Camps in scorching weather with 3 camps taking place in Blackhill, Truagh and Killanny. All 3 camps saw large numbers in attendance with over 370 children taking part in Gaelic Games for the week. Week 5 will see our camps move to Ballybay and Magheracloone. Please note that you are not allowed to register for the camps on Monday morning.
Parents should also be advised that it is forecast to be a very warm week so children should arrive with suncream applied in the morning and some that they can apply throughout the day, a cap/hat to protect from the sun and plenty of water (coaches will provide loads of water breaks).
A huge thank you must go to all 3 clubs for allowing the use of their facilities and especially to their hardworking volunteers who helped each morning and afternoon in managing traffic and making sure everything went smoothly.
Another thank you must go to the camp coordinators, coaches, children and parents for their help throughout the week and we hope everyone enjoyed the wonderful weather and fun games at camp.
On Wednesday morning, a moments applause was observed on all 3 camps as a mark of respect for the late Brendan Óg Ó’Dufaigh. Ogie would have attended our camps for several years when he was younger and even visited our camps in 2018 with the Fr. Murray Cup as the victorious captain of the Monaghan Ulster Minor winning team. May he rest in peace.
