What My Club Means To Me
Over the last number of weeks a call for young players to write and talk about what their GAA club and Gaelic games means to them has resulted in a massive outpouring of poignant responses as heartfelt as they have been well written.
We have been very privileged to have been able to showcase many of these essays in the GAA Club Newsletter and feature another selection of them here. The themes are common. They miss the games, they miss their friends, they miss their coaches and they miss the fun they associate with being involved.
They also all have a real sense of pride in the club that they represent and the community they are a part of, and have been acutely aware of how all of our communities have had to rally to support each other during this pandemic.
As the GAA, LGFA and An Cumann Camogíochta all work together on our return to play protocols and prepare for a return to non-contact Gaelic games training in the coming days, it is our hope that these young players, and indeed all of our players nationwide, get the long-awaited return to action that they have waited so patiently for.
