RETURN TO ACTION: Monaleen GAA club are thrilled to return to the fields of play in recent weeks. Considerable efforts have been put in by officers of the club, across every sector – Adult, Juvenile, Ladies Football and Camogie, over the past number of 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.

PICNIC TABLES: We took delivery of 4 new picnic tables this week from Jim O’Gorman in Johnston & Johnston. After reading about the vandalism at our club, Johnston & Johnston asked if they could help out and replace them. They have delivered 4 new tables, and judging by the weight of them, they wont be easily budged!
