Health and Wellbeing
Scotstown GAA is part of the Healthy Club project which aims to help GAA clubs explore how they support the holistic health of their members and the communities they serve. This is a timely initiative for a post Covid-19 world and we look forward to the Healthy Club project in our future and recovery from the pandemic. As we now enter the summer months and the football is up and running, we will be implementing more Healthy initiatives soon, such as the recent health check at the Scotstown v Truagh senior league game, and will update everyone as these happen.
Gloria Corrigan Memorial Blitz
Our Under 14 girls would like to thank Emyvale for inviting us to take part in the Gloria Corrigan Tournament. It was such a well organised event, a wonderful tribute to a fantastic person. We entered two teams and all the girls had a great day of football. Team 1 made it to the cup semi-final and after some very intense games Team 2 made it to the final against Aghabog. The intensity continued and the final went to extra time. Our girls played with great future blue passion and won the shield! We rounded off the day with an ice-cream on the green, thanks to McMahon Centra Scotstown!
