GRANGEMOCKLER /BALLYNEALE GAA
102 kids attended cul camp least week where they had a brilliant week learning new skills through fun and games.
The club would like to thank all involved who helped make the week a success, our young adults Ramie, Wayne, Andrew, Aoife, Casey, Kate, and Katie, the committee members, the parents on lunch supervision and Margo for the sandwiches. All of our preparation as a club to ensure a good organised and safe camp would have been pointless without good coaches and that’s where Noel Russell and his team came in. They were brilliant, thank you to Noel and his team of highly motivated coach’s. Also thank you to Dinny Maher.
We are looking forward to next year all ready.
