CONNOLLY CALLS! Only a week and a bit to the reopening of Connolly Park! Foighne! Patience! We’re nearly there! The weeks have flown by and we’re now ready to kick leather to our heart’s content!! (i) Monday 29th June is D-day and we are very hopeful that all teams will be back training during that week! Initially, we’ll have small group training sessions for all boys’ panels! We’ll be restricted in terms of contact for just three weeks but once we’ll be playing ball we’ll all be happy! Players will be informed of session times by text/message. (ii) Monday 20th July will be ‘totally air-borne’ day! The Rock will be in full flight! Our full outdoor training with full contact will be in full swing! A club appointed official (maoirseoir covid / maor coróinvíris) will do a precautionary check on players’ temperatures and will fill in health questionnaires to ensure that everybody is virus free. (iii) 31th July – club juvenile and youth competitions will take place but the number of spectators in attendance will be confirmed according to government guidelines (treorlínte an rialtais agus an lucht leighis). (iv) 10th August – players may enter the clubhouse and gym. Meantime, be working as hard as ever on your skills, speed, strength and stamina….scileanna, luas, neart agus teacht aniar? Monday 29th will be a special day in our club’s history….the return after the virus!

LOTTO: Our club lotto coiste is working hard behind the scenes to ensure the success of this very necessary income gatherer. It’s important that people support our lotto as it’s the only fundraising option available to us at this time of víreas coróineach. The finance that’s raised through our weekly club lotto is essential to keep ‘The Rock show on the road’. Lotto tickets are on sale (i) i Siopa Chaoimhín de Barra, Rock Street, (ii) i Siopa Leabhar Paudie Commane, Rock St, and (iii) online – see link below. Please try one or…or you may try all three!
