FONDUIREACH SHEOSAIMH MHIC DHONNCHA
Aidhm an-tábhachtach de chuid Chumann Lúthchleas Gael an Ghaeilge, mar theanga, a chur chun cinn. Is scéim í “Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha” de chuid Chumann Lúthchleas Gael agus Ghlór na nGael a thugann aitheantas do chlubanna a bhíonn gníomhach agus iad ag cur chun cinn na Gaeilge ina gcuid clubanna.
Fógraíodh go raibh 37 bonn le bronnadh ar chlubanna fud fad na tíre mar aitheantas ar a gcuid oibre. D’aimsigh CLG Mungairit/Naomh Pól bonn cré-umha a bhaint amach de réir an méid oibre atá ar siúil againn, agus is mór an onóir dúinn é.
Míle buíochas le baill CLG Mungairti/Naomh Pól a rinne tréan-iarracht thar an bhliain agus le muintir na háite a thugann tacaíocht dúinn leis an nGaeilge, ach go háirithe Gaelscoil an Ráithín, Conradh na Gaeilge agus Comhluadar Luimnigh.
One of the objectives of the GAA is the promotion of the Irish Language. The “Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha” is a scheme supported by the GAA and Glór na nGael that recognise and reward clubs that promote the Irish Language.
There were 37 medals awarded to clubs throughout the country for their efforts. Mungret/St Paul’s GAA was awarded a bronze medal for our efforts and we are very proud of all the work going into it.
Thanks to all the members who made an effort and to the local community who help promote Irish, especially Gaelscoil an Ráithín, Conradh na Gaeilge and Comhluadar Luimnigh.
One of our coaches is organising a Charity soccer match in aid of Concern. If you are looking for a fun run around after a ball, why not head down to UL North Campus Astro pitch on Wednesday 22 December for 8pm start ( arrive earlier to register, €10 per player, and get acquainted with the rest of your team ).
This is aimed at Lads and Dads from U15 age group (with parent/ guardian present), up to still able to run around the garden age group. Dressings rooms (and Defib ) will be available on the night.
Any queries can be directed to Liam on 0871891344
Our U-13 players finish off the year of training with some fun training and a medal presentation. It is brilliant for the club to have 24 players all on the age of 13 on the team that won the U-13 Division 1 Footballers, all our U12 players were on the Division 3 team that put in some great work during the year. Well done to all our young players and to all our coaches for a serious amount of work put into keeping everything going. We look forward to seeing all our members back on the pitches in the new year.
