Back on the Field: Supporting players return after lockdown
The past fourteen months have been difficult for many during the COVID-19 pandemic. Huge credit must go to all clubs in supporting your players, members and communities during this time. As our adult players return to the playing field, Cavan GAA Health & Wellbeing Committee hosted t wellbeing webinar with Dr. Paul Gaffney (Clinical Psychologist HSE & Cavan Senior Footballers) and Ciaran Boylan (Assistant Psychologist) on Wednesday 19th May. The aim of this webinar was to help those coaching / working with our adult players to support these players through the current challenges.

Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative
The Expression of interest for DEYLI 2021-2022 is now open. The ideal is that your club take the DEYLI initiative on board and recruit young people to get involved in the programme. We ask clubs to have a minimum of two DEYLI facilitators. Facilitator training is delivered by Foróige and brings you through the running of the programme within your club. The running period for a club tends to be the school year, I have attached some FAQ’s regarding the programme. Kevin Spain a former DEYLI tutor hosted an excellent webinar last week that went through all the details regarding DEYLI. Click HERE to re-watch the webinar. It’s a great initiative and a really good opportunity for that age group to get some valuable skills and a significant qualification. Blánaid will be happy to answer any questions you have on the programme on 01 819 2387.
