The Hurling Section finally got round to “safely” making some presentations this week.

John Ryan and John Small  visited Saplings where they met with  Vice Principal, Clodagh Mitchell, and presented her with a cheque for €1,300. This money was donated from the proceeds of our Christmas Tree sales in December.

The Saplings Schools are co-educational specialist schools, providing quality education for pupils with autism and complex needs. The club is delighted to be associated with the local Saplings which is based in Sancta Maria.

Thanks to all who supported the sale of Christmas Trees in the club.

You will all be aware of  the success of out Virtual Treasure Hunt which took place in March. The event was kindly sponsored by SuperValu and the manager of the local branch, Owen Doyle, kindly presented the captain of the winning team, Fionn Maguire,  with his vouchers outside sundrenched SuperValu on Friday. He also presented the captain of the second placed team, Aidan Dundon, with his vouchers. Section Chairperson John Ryan and Section Secretary, Dave Conway are also pictured.

The Virtual Treasure Hunt was a great success and the section had agreed to make a contribution to a local charity. A cheque for €445 was presented to Sarah Byrne of Jigsaw, Dublin South West.  Jigsaw supports young people  with their Mental  Health, an area which  can affect every aspect of a young person’s life. Jigsaw believes every young person must have the support that’s right for them, whatever they are going through.  The section is delighted to support Jigsaw. The club also supports the One Good Club Initiative which aims to increase awareness and knowledge of mental health across the LGFA community.

Dave Conway and John were on hand to present Sarah with a cheque on Friday

We now look forward to the return of our games.  In the meantime, Stay Safe
