CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Croom GAA Golf Classic:
We are holding our annual Croom GAA Golf Classic in Adare Manor Golf Club on Saturday October 31st from 9am-12.30. Teams of 3 are €200. Tee box sponsorship €100. Format is 3 ball champagne scramble. Please contact Mickey Cahill 0851349959, Stephen Lucey 0879858726, or Johnny Fitzgerald 0868078703 for details and time sheet. Hosting the golf classic is subject to Covid guidelines/restrictions which are evolving each week and we will update if there are any changes.
Covid 19 Restrictions:
The GAA have suspended all games for the time being but training can continue in pods of 15 and must be non contact. We would like to thank all our members, mentors, volunteers and all involved for their continued hard work throughout what has been a difficult year.
Phase 3 Development:
Work continued in earnest last week, and next week weather permitting, the final ground works will be completed prior to the installation of the new 4G training surface. This Sunday the existing wall was being power hosed and washed down before Monday, and credit to Marky & Patrick Reidy for spending their Sunday afternoon to ensure this was done on time. Another exciting chapter in the club’s development strategy. We look forward to it’s completion!
Last Sunday, due to Covid restrictions we trained in somewhat of a different manner. No training match despite calls from the kids to have one. Not knowing what the next few months hold in store for us yet again will be a challenge however we will continue to train for as long as possible. Our hurlers are in a county final and our footballers are almost there too but it’s looking more and more likely these fixtures will not be fulfilled, which is frustrating and disappointing for all involved, but there are more important things on all of our horizons right now. After training the U12 panel were presented with club tops very kindly sponsored by Kevin and Claire Clancy of KC Plumbing. In addition to the presentation of club gear, a special token of appreciation was presented by the coaches to our only lady (“our first lady”) on the panel **Laura Carey**. Laura has been with this panel since this group started out together at U6s. Laura, who graduates to the camogie ranks after U12s this year will be very much missed by all the boys and the coaches. We wish Laura all the best for the future and have no doubt Laura will go on to bigger and better things in the future.
Finally, we’d like to thank KC Plumbing for their support. We are very grateful for your sponsorship, thank you Kevin and Claire!
U8 & U10 wall ball and skill sessions will take place on Monday Oct 19th from 7-8pm.
Our U6 Nursery continues their training and fun functional movement skills and activities on the 4G training area this Saturday 11-12noon. All kids are welcome
