Our Club Camp 2022 offically ended today and what a week it was!
What a great 5 days our kids have had! 140 kids rolled through the gates this week – up 60 from last year!
Training, learning, making friends and most of all – lots of fun!
It was brilliant to see our main pitch full of activity on all 5 days!
Where do we start?
Thank you to our once in a lifetime GPO Nigel Kennedy and his 15+ coaches who trained, looked after, entertained our kids this week – you were all amazing and the kids loved you!
Thank you to the organisers and especially Hubert Madigan who simply made this work this week!
Thank you to our club president Mary Madigan and all those that helped organise the shop this week – Sherie, Trish, Edel, Tootsie, Michelle – your help was priceless!
Thanks to the Dublin Port Company who we hope to work closer and closer with – and who sponsored our 60 Nursery Jerseys – and John Farrell / Hubert Madigan who made this happen! Big thank you to Declin Cowley who organised our new club wide Kit and Ross Carrig in Balon who supplied it! Thanks to Mattie for giving up your time today and taking all the pictures!
We would also like to thank you – the parents – for the taxi service you provided bringing the children to the complex.

I know you’re sick of reading and hearing this – but thank you to Declan Cowley who organised this club wide Kit deal and the decision makers who saw a key opportunity and added the discounted Kit to the Summer Camp pricing which meant that our entire club is kitted out and branded! Unreal!
For those that don’t have Kit yet – don’t worry we’ll let you know when it arrives.
This is not official yet – but our club camp will be a 3 day affair this year and will take place in August – either the 3 dates 17th/18th/19th or 24th/25th/26th. We will let you know as soon as we know.
Our Club Day is ear marked for Sat 27th August – please save the date!!
As you may agree – last years Club day was a huge success and a blue print for all club days to come! This years format will follow suit with a few surprises!
BBQ, live music & kids entertainment. All teams will play on this day – league, cup and friendlies. We intend to have all teams playing at similar times this time around in the space of 2 hours – then we’ll have a BBQ, music & bar till late evening
Come and go as you please! All welcome – members and non members! Specific itinerary to follow
