The biggest ever coaching survey conducted in Irish sport will see the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association join forces to help shape the future development of Gaelic games. Over the next three weeks coaches at every level of football, hurling and camogie are being encouraged and urged to make their voices heard via the online survey. GAA President, John Horan, believes the Gaelic Games Coaching Survey 2020 can be a hugely positive initiative for the Association. The link to the survey is in this week's club notes on the club website

GAA Director General, Tom Ryan gave an update on the GAA's Roadmap to return, watch the interview here:

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association will team up with Lidl Ireland and Jigsaw to roll out five days of activity focusing on Positive Youth Mental Health from Monday 1st to Friday 5th June. As everyone will be aware, many of our members across the country were due to begin their Leaving Certificate or Junior Certificate, GCSE or A Level, exams that week and they, with many other of our young players, are having to deal with added stress and pressure during these current times. Sport plays a crucial outlet for young people's positive mental health and adds to the 'Be Active' message utilized by Jigsaw as part of their 5-a-day for positive mental health. The LGFA in partnership with Lidl and Jigsaw will outline each of these 5 key messages throughout our Be Positive Week and we ask all our members to get involved and support our young members across the country and to assist our young members to help themselves also.
See for more details.

The Dublin LGFA referees are holding a charity Fun run on Saturday May 30th in aid of St Francis Hospice. Angela Gallagher, Tom Casserly and William Eakins from Lucan Sarsfields are taking part, support this worthy cause here
