RIP Seamus Connolly

RIP Seamus Connolly

Simonstown GFC would like to extend its deepest sympathy to the family of Seamus Connolly, wife Joan, son Gareth and daughter Grainne Jane, other relatives and a wide circle of friends, on his death this week. Seamus has always been a great friend, a loyal sponsor and a familiar presence through his work as a caterer around our club. For the best part of two decades, he has generously sponsored and provided our senior team with food after training. Seamus and his team provided the catering for all the big sporting and social events hosted by the club over many years and always did so professionally and without fuss. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He was renowned for a ‘loaves and fishes’ touch - however great a crowd at any function was, even if it wasn’t anticipated, there was always more than enough for everyone. He’ll be missed by all in Simonstown but we’ll always value his friendship and support over so many years. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam...

Downloads: Guidance & GAA Letter to Members

A chairde, We hope you, your families, members and friends are keeping well since we were last in touch. Thank you for your ongoing support and attached are further guidelines addressing some of the issues that have been raised by our clubs and counties recently. Included is advice and updates around the following: Pitch maintenance (which is permitted within certain guidelines) GAA Volunteer guidelines for all Volunteers (both 26 and Six Counties) Emergency template for access to GAA facilities Individual county by county contact numbers for Local Government Community Support (only 26 Counties set up at this point) An open letter to our members Latest HSE advice and information Yesterday the Irish government launched the ‘Community Call’ initiative which aims to encourage everyone to assist those in need of help in their immediate locality. The GAA’s ‘Club Together’ Initiative with SuperValu and Centra falls under the auspices of this government plan and much of the information provided along with this email relates back to the Government programme. While of immediate relevance to our units operating in the 26 counties, much of it is applicable to all of our units. The most successful and best attended GAA games development initiative each year is our Kelloggs Cúl Camps programme. In this regard the association is committed, and planning is ongoing, to provide a Cúl Camp programme in 2020 for our young Gaelic games enthusiasts over the summer. We are looking forward to arrival of 172,000 kits starting the end of April. For more and regular updates stay in touch with our website. Once again, we would like to re-iterate our gratitude...

Simonstown Closure Extended to April 19th

Simonstown Closure Extended to April 19th

A chairde, Club Operations Please be advised that, in line with recent government announcements, these measures and closures are now extended to Sunday April 19 inclusive, at which stage arrangements will be reviewed. In addition, we are now instructing GAA Clubs to close their facilities completely. This is to include the use of all pitches and property for recreational purposes, including walking, casual games or gatherings. Where it is not possible to restrict access please erect signage to the effect that all GAA facilities are closed and all activity suspended. In order to facilitate an orderly resumption of activities when circumstances permit, Clubs are encouraged to proceed as normal with their membership registration process where practical. Clubs of course should be mindful of the possible changed financial circumstances of members. Similarly, club lottos may proceed if they are run on an online basis and do not involve wholesale engagement with the public. Clubs are also advised to refrain from undertaking new capital projects while support funding for this type of work is suspended. Community Support As a national / international organisation, we have a part to play in emphasising the need to practice social distancing, as outlined by the authorities. It is imperative that we exercise extreme caution keeping two metres between people when taking physical exercise while encouraging people to consider using off-peak times when they are less likely to meet others. Attached is the latest messaging from the HSE covering guidelines around volunteering which we advise our clubs to consider as they involve themselves in community-based volunteer efforts. Individual volunteers are asked to register with Volunteer Ireland...
