RETURN TO PLAY :
It is a very exciting week for Bord na nÓg Clubs and players as they return to the pitch. Thanks to all who have worked tirelessly to get all under age groups hurling and football back out onto their local pitch as safely as possible this week. They cannot wait for all to be back at training and having fun with their friends again with a hurley in their hand or a gum shield in their mouth. The training schedule will be of course very busy in all clubs. STAY SAFE and BEST OF LUCK to all Involved.
REMINDER GARDA VETTING : With a return to play on the horizan, it is very important to note that any person who carries out a role of responsibility such as coaching, managing or training underage teams or indeed adult teams that contain any player under 18 years. of age, MUST be Garda Vetted. It also applies to organising underage activities or refereeing underage games. It is a criminal offence, for a person acting on behalf of the GAA, to commence working with children without that person first obtaining a vetting disclosure.
