RETURN TO ACTION: Monaleen GAA club were thrilled to return to the fields of play last week. Considerable efforts were put in by officers of the club, across every sector – Adult, Juvenile, Ladies Football and Camogie, over the past few weeks to prepare and plan for this return. There are significant requirements on the club, and we are very appreciative of the number of parents and coaches who have stepped forward to become Covid Compliance Officers for each team. We ask all members to do their utmost to comply with the requests of these officers. Together we will ensure that we all play our part in ensuring the safety of all members. We wish every team the best in their respective competitions.

CÚL CAMP: Dear parents and players, Monaleen GAA club has taken the decision not to host the Cúl Camp this year. We would not be able to provide socially distant facilities in the event of poor or wet weather. We understand that this will cause disappointment, but we believe that it is the best option in an ever changing environment. We look forward to returning in 2021 with both Cúl Camp and our own ever popular Summer Camp.

COVID VOLUNTEER RESPONSE: Things have really slackened off over the last few weeks and calls in to the Monaleen GAA Covid Volunteer Response have now reduced to a standstill. With a view to a potential second wave, we will keep our volunteer group on standby. We took loads of calls and helped out so many households who would otherwise have been in a serious bind. We were delighted and proud to serve so many of our community in their hour of need.

CONGRATULATIONS: President of Monaleen GAA Club, Jack O’Sullivan, was the proud recipient of a Mayoral Recognition given by Cllr Michael Sheahan, Mayor of Limerick, last week in recognition of his valued contribution to the GAA, parish and school communities in Monaleen, at a special function in the Chambers of the Limerick City and County Council Offices in Dooradoyle. Jack attended the special event with members of his family. Everyone at Monaleen GAA Club is very proud of you Jack.
