Club Planning and Development Workshop

St Faithleachs GAA Club is in the process of developing a five year strategic Club plan, which will map out the future direction of our Club. This is a key development for us as we aim to build on our past and build for the future. As part of this process, we are holding a consultation Club planning workshop on Saturday 19th March for all our members, officers, players and all in the community. The purpose of this workshop is to give everyone in our community the opportunity to have their say in our future. This will be a workshop based event and will take no longer than two hours. Those present will discuss various topics in small groups, including coaching and games development, communication, facilities development etc. Everyone present will have ample opportunity to input and it will be facilitated by two facilitators appointed by the County Board. Your attendance at this important event for our Club is greatly appreciated and I would also ask you to encourage others to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
