The aim of Cairde Na Botha is to improve and develop our Kilmore training facilities to help achieve our vision of continuously improving our success on-field for our teams and off-field for our community. Cairde Na Botha is one of the biggest projects ever undertaken by our club. Be part of it! Scotstown GAA’s success has always been built on the considerable support we receive from home and abroad. We fondly remember fundraising projects in the past, such as the Scotstown Carnival in the 1960s to the purchase of our main field at Urbleshanny,
The Lord Mayor Campaign in the 1980s to fund the building of Sportlann Mhuire (the complex) and development of St. Marys Park and indeed, the ambitious purchase Of Kilmore in 1995 which has contributed to the outstanding success we achieve today.
Cairde na Botha is your opportunity to help your club continue this successful development for this generation and the next into the future. Fully paid up Members of Cairde Na Botha will have the benefit of their name engraved on the supporters’ wall at the Kilmore training grounds.
Please read our brochure via the link attached where you can support the initiative online. https://member.clubforce.com/memberships_cart_m.asp?LL_ID=2259&intMF_ID=8808#Anchor

Health and Wellbeing
With the clock gone back an hour and the dark evenings and winter setting in, this is the time of year for the “Make your Céili” community initiative which combats loneliness and rural isolation. This has been a successful initiative aimed at encouraging people to visit a neighbour who may be lonely or suffering from rural isolation. So please over the next few months call in on people who may be suffering from loneliness, and please keep in mind the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and take the necessary precautions. For those who are still nervous of physical visits given the ongoing Pandemic, we can still make contact with those we care about and / or are cocooning, living alone or vulnerable. They would really appreciate a phone call, letter or card just to say “I’m thinking about you, keep safe and stay strong.” So please, Make a Ceili, Phone a Ceili, write a Letter, send a Card and keep in touch over the winter months and we are always here to help in anyway.
