JUVENILE REGISTRATION FRIDAY 7pm
If you have an address in St. Johns Parish then O’Loughlin Gaels GAA is the club for you. With facilities the envy of so many only a stones throw from Nowlan Park you can’t go wrong joining the club that is home to the current Senior Hurling County Champions. Groundsman Eddie Maher and his team have been busy with pitch maintenance throughout the off season so that every square inch of the facilities are pristine for the return of our young Gaels… and the welcoming of new Gaels. The juvenile section is stocking up the equipment store and on Friday February the 10th at 7.00pm all boys and girls u6 to u12 from St. John’s Parish are invited to the club to register their intent for the season ahead with O’Loughlin Gaels GAA & Camogie Clubs. Full details are on the website and the club’s social media pages. There will be an opportunity to get photographs with the Tom Walsh Cup that the seniors hurlers collected after their County Final win, and no doubt aspire to do the same when they complete the new Player Pathway that the club have carefully tailored for its juvenile players. Keep the date free and keep a close eye on the website and here for more details.
