Western Gaels Summer Camp

Our multi activity sports camp concluded on Friday last and by all accounts it was a brilliant success. Over the course of the 5 days 120 children attended each day tasking place in a wide range of activities each day. The clubs extends its sincere thanks to Dermot McGarry who organised and ran all activities each day. Dermot also wants to thank all the players from the men’s and ladies teams from U -14 to senior grade who helped out each day and a big thanks to all the parents who gave their time so generously each day. It is thoroughly appreciated. A big thanks also to the local businesses who supplied refreshments on various days throughout the week. A great week all round for the younger members of our club area.
