As summer has gone and we enter the latter end of 2019 our club continues to go from strength to strength with many of our Dancers, Footballers and Handballers participating in competitions many returning with successful outcomes.
Handball is a sport that continues to grow in our club and fair play to all involved in hosting The Munster One Wall Championships in June. The Chairman Tadhg O Sullivan and his committee continue to work to promote Handball at an underage level but all are welcome to try out this growing activity within our club.
Well done to all involved in making the SPA Review happen again this year a lot of work goes into bringing this Magazine to Print and distribution among the club by already very busy people in our club.
Our Club Fun-day on September 28th was a huge success in showcasing our club and enjoyable evening despite the weather.
We continue to host events on a social level as well throughout the year with a climb of Stricken Mountain on July 27th to many walks, more recently on October 5th down around Ross island and Copper-mines. These events along with being Health and Wellbeing have an Educational element to them as well.
In my July Report I mentioned that there is always room on the “Health and Well-being bus” and that as the Clubs Health and Well-being Officer I am always open to ideas for Autumn/Winter .
One such Event is happening at the end of our ABC and under age academy year end. On October 19th when we host a Coffee morning from 10am to 12 noon. This is in conjunction with the Irish Cancer Society and to give back to their excellent palliative care teams who care for so many and support their families at this extremely difficult time.
Our club is at present grieving the loss of many members whose contribution to our club is deeply appreciated and we will continue to support their families in whatever way we can and hold their loved ones memory within the club going forward.
So come along on this special morning in our club and show your appreciation. Home-baking will be welcome.
If you feel you have an idea that would be of interest to your club or team, why not let me know and I will make every effort to facilitate on the club calendar.
Thanks again to all who strive to make our great club an even better club going forward.
Margaret Doyle, Health and Well-being Officer.
