CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Club Development Plan Open Night
Croom has been selected by Croke Park and Limerick County Board as one of 3 pilot clubs to develop a 3 year club development plan. On Wednesday last, a large crowd gathered for the first open night. The meeting was facilitated by Donal Fitzgibbon (former county board chairman and member of Croke Park CCCC) and Seamus Twomey (county board development officer). Alan Sheerin opened the meeting, welcoming Donal and Seamus and the large crowd. The crowd was then divided into small groups and posed 2 questions. Firstly, what was positive about Croom GAA club, and secondly what people would like to see put in place as part of a 3 year plan for the club. The groups brainstormed and fed back many great ideas and suggestions. At the end 6 groups were set up and everyone was invited to join one group they were interested in. The groups are: 1)Coaching & Games; 2) Schools link 3) Communications/IT4) Facilities 5) Social/Fundraising 6) Recruitment & retention. Each group will meet themselves until the next main meeting on Wednesday March 20th. If you are interested in any group or couldn’t make the Open Night, don’t worry, you can still get involved. Contact PJ O’Mahony and he will put you in touch with the group lead.
