Connacht GAA Play & Stay Activity Days

posted 25 Mar 2012, 07:31 by Unknown user

Connacht GAA is hosting its annual Play & Stay Activity Days programme in Croke Park on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th April.

The Connacht GAA Activity days provide selected clubs from all over Connacht with the Croke Park experience. The players involved will get to play in Croke Park and also get a trip to the Croke Park Museum. This initiative, which was spearheaded by Connacht Games Manager, John Tobin, first took place five years ago and it has been an outstanding success. To date over 120 Hurling and Gaelic Football clubs in the province have had the opportunity to play in a series of Go Games Blitzes. These players and their mentors also get the opportunity of a tour of the Croke Park Museum. The unforgettable experience includes preparing for the games in the dressing rooms and concludes with each team lifting a cup at the presentation area in the Hogan Stand afterwards.

Connacht GAA would like to thank the County Coaching Committees, the Games Managers and Coaching staff and the various clubs for their cooperation to date. The clubs travelling to Croke Park this year are;

Galway: Mullagh, Liam Mellowes, Castlegar, Kiltormer, Tommy Larkins, Meelick-Eyrecourt, Corofin, Killanin, Mountbellew/Moylough, Kilkerrin/Clonberne, Cortoon Shamrocks, Williamstown, Milltown, Menlough
