We Are Back !
Finally after almost 4 months the pitches are back open. A huge well done to everyone who worked so hard in the battle against the Coronavirus. Let’s hope we keep winning the battle now. Keep up the great work everyone. Keep washing those hands, respecting the guidelines and taking all the necessary precautions
Return To Play
Things are a little bit different than they were in March and previous seasons with onerous demands put on all teams. Players must complete Covid 19 training and Return to Play Health Questionnaires and equipment needs sanitising. We also need to monitor numbers in our grounds and we ask for patience from everyone as we phase teams back over the next two weeks and learn as we go through
A huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help as Covid Officers. The work you are doing really takes the pressure of our coaches and we are very grateful for your time
The games are starting later in the month and membership will need to be paid in advance
Unfortunately the Kellogg’s Cúl Camps and Graham Reilly Camps are at full capacity. There is some suggestion that extra camps may be added but there is nothing confirmed as we go to press. Please keep an eye on social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for further updates

The last week saw the Adult and Minor Championship draws made and we face some challenging tests. In the Ladies Championships we face Royal Gaels, Ratoath and Dunsany in the Intermediate Championship and Slane/Rathkenny and Seneschalstown in the Junior C Championship. If the Division 1 Minor Boys are to retain the Delany Cup then they will have to do it the hard way facing Ratoath, Skryne and Dunshauglin in the Group stages. The Division 3 Draw has not been made at the time of going to press. In the Men’s Senior Football Championship its another tough draw as we face Gaeil Colmcille, Dunshaughlin and Dunboyne. The Premier 3 (B Team) face Dunderry, Donaghmore Ashbourne and Dunsany whilst the Premier 5 (C team) play Simonstown, Skryne and Moynalty
