Well done to all our participators who attended our Operation Transformation on Monday last in the bad weather. It was another great night. The ‘1000lb Challenge’ got off to a great start with one member registering a fantastic 8lb loss in the week. There are 41 members taking part in the ‘1000lb Challenge’ while only 29 were available to be weighted on Monday night they managed a great 86 lb or 6 stone 2 lbs loss in the group. You can still take part in the challenge and we would remind those who are taking part that there is support available to help keep up the brilliant effort they have put in. Olivia Whyte is available for advise on food and nutrition while Darragh Droog and Jean Costello are available to answer questions on fitness and exercise. Thank you to those who have taken sponsorship cards, these are also available again on Monday night if you missed than last week.
Don’t forget we have our charity donation bucket available each Monday night for a sugested contribution of €2 each Monday night.
The doors are open at 6pm for early weigh in while the walk begins at 7pm.
Mungret St. Pauls are delighted to be able to bring this event to the community to benefit walkers and charities through the Healthy Club. We also run a men only fitness camp called Men on the Move, during the year and hope to bring in another new fitness event during the year if you are interested or know someone who would be interested in these events to email their name and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will notify you when these events are due to begin.
CAMOGIE CLUB AWARDS NIGHT
Our Camogie club was privileged to have Cork dual star Rena Buckley present at our awards evening on Sunday 21 January. There was a fantastic reception waiting for Rena as she arrived with the great turn out of players and parents. Rena is the holder of 18 All Ireland medals a feat that is unmatched by any other GAA player in the county and spoke very well on her love of Camogie and Ladies Football, encouraging each player to keep up the training all year round even if it just to hit a ball against a wall. Well done to all our players and coaches for there achievements in 2017, our U-16 team were presented with their medals which they won early in 2017 while all players were honored by their coaches at each age group. There was an opportunity at the end of the night for our players to chat with Rena and get to lift the O’Duffy Cup. A big Thank You to all who organised this memorable night.
