The key messages for this week:

  • COVID-19 Update...Return to Play in next few weeks
  • Lotto Jackpot will be €20,000 next Friday night

Midleton GAA…at the ‘Heart of the Community’. Ní neart go cur le chéile. There is no strength without unity.

COVID Update

We are eagerly awaiting the ‘Return to Play’ for non-Adult teams from Monday 26th April with Adult teams returning in May. The return for ‘Juveniles’ will be in a non-contact environment and will obviously be subject to similar protocols and guidelines as pertained last season.

All going well on the COVID ‘numbers’ and vaccine roll-out front we can anticipate a full GAA, Ladies Football, Camogie and Magpie All-Stars programme for all players during the year.

In the meantime, we would like to remind members that, in line with current COVID guidelines, GAA grounds are closed.

Healthy Club Project

Grow it Forward Initiative

GIY, in partnership with Healthy Ireland and public libraries will distribute 50,000 free food growing kits as part of a new ‘Grow it Forward’ initiative. You can claim your free seed pack by contacting your local library. Recipients are asked to use the kits to share the experience with ten people, enabling half a million people across Ireland to enjoy the wide range of benefits that come from growing food at home. Each food growing pack includes:

  • seeds for beetroot, carrots, salad leaves, peas and tomatoes;
  • a guide to help grow them and
  • a postcard and gift tags to help share them.

Further details can be found here: https://www.librariesireland.ie/news/grow-it-forward-with-free-seeds-from-your-local-library

Engaging Men Webinar Series: Why Men's Health?

You are invited to the first in a series of webinars focused on Engaging Men. The Why Men’s Health? webinar takes place on the 29th April from 12.00 – 13.00 and registration is here. HSE Health and Wellbeing, together with the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland, the Men’s Development Network and the Men’s Health Research Centre in IT Carlow will host this series of webinars which will bring you expert insights about the work and learning from the delivery to date of the HSE National Men’s Health Action Plan 'Healthy Ireland Men'.

Stress Control

As the HSCNI or HSE can’t deliver our Stress Control classes in the community just now, Dr Jim White will, instead, live-stream the classes until June, free-of-charge. All you need to successfully complete this class is to watch each of the six sessions, read the booklets and use the relaxation and mindfulness. You can find the sessions on YouTube. Further details on dates and where to find the videos can be found at the following links;

Juvenile

Junior Infants Boys Pre-Registration

The ongoing Govid-19 government restrictions has meant that the most important boy’s team in the club, the new Fé6 Junior Infants Boys, haven’t been able to commence their GAA training yet. We hope that once the restrictions are lifted, this group will join all their teammates in Midleton GAA Club on the training fields. We also hope that official Club registration will take place when restrictions allow. In the meantime, if any parents of Junior Infant Boys wish to submit their details including name/ number/ email, they can do so to our Juvenile Secretary Michael Carroll at secretarybng.midleton.cork@gaa.ie or to 086-8362218.

Safeguarding, Vetting & Coaching

Safeguarding, vetting and coaching training are all mandatory requirements of any GAA club.  To help us create a safe and enjoyable environment for the children who play Gaelic games in Midleton we are very active at the moment in updating our requirements.  

A number of coaches have applied for Garda vetting due to the changes to the legislation which now mean that vetting is valid for three years only, as opposed to the previous rule which allowed for five years.

A huge correspondence drive from the club to all coaches who require updating has been ongoing for the last number of weeks.  As a club there has been a phenomenal response to this with the majority active in updating requirements.  This is highly appreciated by the club and will ensure our prompt and safe return to play once the restrictions are eased. 

Condolences

Cumann Luthchleas Gael Mainistir na Corann would like to offer our condolences to the Parsons family on the recent passing of Ollie. Ollie was a stalwart of Ballinacurra GAA for many years and his passing will be deeply felt. 

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a-anam dílis.
