MUNGRET ST PAUL’S GAA CLUB NOTES
GONE TO THE DOGS
We are now into the Semi Finals of the Con and Annie Kirby puppy Stakes with Mallogs Marley who ran another great race and came in second place on Saturday 10 April. This would not be possible without the sponsorship of JP & Noreen McManus. We are in trap 3 in heat 1 this Saturday, each of the races will be LIVE every Saturday night on a new online Greyhound Racing show called Talking Dogs TV. You can support by logging on a watching to see how our dog runs.
Last week there was a Club Virtual Banner Parade, this week our players are asked to enter a skills challenge for this week on the Limerick Greyhound Social Media pages. This week’s challenge is for kids aged 6-8 and 9-12 to see how many Roll Lifts or Solo Toe Taps they can get in 30 seconds. To enter parents or guardians can record their child’s entry and post it to social media using #Kirby2021 and #Virtual Skills or you can email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries have to be in by Sunday April 18th. The four winners will each receive a voucher for a sports store.
CAMOGIE 12 DAY SKILLS CHALLENGE
We completed our 12 Day Skills Challenge on Friday 9th April 2020, and what a 12 days it was!
It was great to see girls of all ages across the camogie club taking up the challenges.
Thanks so much to each and every one of you, and to the parents who followed them around the gardens with their phones, we salute you too!!
Winners: The Easter Eggs winners were Ella, Sadhbh, Ava, Rosa, Sophie, Vivienne, Jayne, Faye, Mia, Nicole, Lorna and Rebecca.
The Judges deliberated hard today to decide who was to win the overall prize of the Canning Hurley. It was a tough decision, as there have been some serious efforts displayed. However, the most consistent participant across the 12 days, taking on each challenge with gusto, could not be overlooked, so congratulations to Rosa!!! We really do have a mighty bunch of girls!
Thank you, Finally, a big thanks to the people who recorded the daily skills for everyone to see. Thanks to Limerick Camogie Goalie, Laura O’Neill who kindly launched the initiative for us and to our coaches Michael Larkin (with Ava) John Page, Alan Browne (with Rosa & Saoirse) Brian Tobin, Mike Lynch and last but not least, player Sinead Madden. We really appreciate you all!

RETURN TO PLAY
The good news delivered by the government last week was that non-contact underage training in pods of 15 will be permitted from April 26th. However, the date is conditional and will very much depend on what happens in terms of the overall COVID-19 picture in the coming weeks. We must continue to comply whole heartedly with the restrictions in spirit and in practice. We thank everyone for their compliance in this regard.
In order to be ready to return we need ALL players and coaches to make sure they are registered with the club before they take to the pitch. You will also be required to fill in the Return to Play form each time a player or coach takes to the pitch.
