AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES
Ahane GAA awarded Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha bronze medal for development of Gaeilge in the club
Ahane GAA has been awarded a bronze Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha award for their work in developing Gaeilge in the club in 2020.
Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha is a joint support scheme between Glór na nGael and the GAA itself for clubs wishing to promote the language. The Foundation aims to help develop that promotion and the Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha medal is a sign of achievement and recognition for continued work on behalf of the language.
We are delighted to receive the award which shows how much work and time our Irish Officer Denis Kelly has put in over the last year to bring Irish to the forefront in the club. It has been great to see all the activities that Denis has organised taking place and bringing the community together. We were the only club in Limerick to receive a Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonnacha award and we are very proud of Denis and all involved. (Photograph below)
Ahane GAA are currently planning their cultural program for 2021, even in these uncertain times as they have set their sights on securing a silver Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha medal.
New Year Wishes
Ahane GAA Club want to wish all our members and everyone in the community a very Happy New Year. We want to take this opportunity once again to thank all our players, parents, mentors, coaches, volunteers, COVID supervisors and sponsors for their continued support, hard work and dedication to the club this year more than ever. Here’s to 2021, may it bring brighter, happier, and healthier days for us all
Stay safe and look out for each other
In accordance with the announcement made by An Taoiseach Micheál Martin, all club activities are suspended until January 31st where the decision will be reviewed. There will be no collective training for any age group including our adult teams. All GAA club grounds will be closed and fingers crossed will reopen on January 31st but again this is dependent on what the government decide upon on review of the COVID-19 cases. We remind all our members to continue to follow government advice and where possible to remain at home and exercise within your 5km. We need to stick together by staying apart.
Cash for Clobber
We are still running our Cash for Clobber fundraiser until the end of January. We accept unwanted/unused clothes, belts, handbags and shoes (in pairs only).
