O’LOUGHLIN’S GAA SUMER CAMP
The 10th annual O'Loughlin Gaels GAA Summer Camp boasted a contingent of over 200 strong that gathered on the steps in front of O'Loughlin Gaels GAA club on Monday before 10am in anticipation of two full weeks of GAA magic.
The night before reflected a mood of Christmas Eve as youngsters all around St. Parish tossed and turned to get that final sleep in so they could get up, grab their hurls and helmets and rush to St. John's Park. For one young Gael the wait was just too much and was first in at 8.30am. DOC was already getting traffic management operations in full swing so was on hand to calm any anxiety before the scheduled throw in.
After a quick intro from Coordinator Niall Bergin the boys and girls were grouped with their club mentors for the day, made up of adult hurling and camogie players aided by their minor colleagues, and were out on the fields within minutes having the craic almighty!.
Some are finding the days too short as the time flies to 2.30pm each day but they leave happy knowing that at 10am the following morning it all kicks off again. ..and maybe they hope the 2017 Edition Jersey will be there waiting for them...we're all wondering what colour this years one will be!
Summer Camp continues until Aug 12th. Lovely Hurling
Never under estimate the power of going to watch our son or daughter train or play games…they thrive on it. As the juvenile games and training is in full swing please make every effort to support all young players and listen to everything they tell you about their experiences at O’Loughlin Gaels GAA. It’s a great facility to have and a wonderful source of enjoyment for all young players involved. Well done to all…keep up the good work.
