Senior Infants Fundamental/Multi-Skills Demonstration Nights

Donoughmore GAA primary games committee will undertake 2 training demonstrations with all senior
infants children in the parish. The aim of these demonstrations is to provide the parents of these children with an insight into coaching children at this age group.
 
From the ages of 5 to 8, children need to learn general fundamental skills such as running, jumping,
catching, kicking and throwing. These skills can be applied to many sporting activities and will help children to participate in sports and activities throughout their lives.
 
The demonstrations will take place on Wednesday 12th and 19th November from 6.15 to 6.50pm in the Sports Complex, Stuake. The parents of all participating children are asked to remain in the hall while the demonstrations are being carried out, as the demonstration is primarily aimed at parents. The cost of entry is €2 per child per night and all senior infants children and their parents are welcome.
 
A meeting will take place on Monday 17th November at 8pm (in GAA grounds, Lackabawn) with parents who are interested in coaching children at this age group. Ultimately, the viability of running senior infants fundamentals will depend on having enough parents willing to coach and help out. No previous coaching experience is necessary as coach training and information nights will be provided by Donoughmore GAA throughout the year.

Ice Bucket Challenge

As this Ice Bucket Challenge is for such a worthy cause and we know we have a willing bunch of lads in our Minor Hurlers we're going to nominate them.  If anyone wants to support the lads raising much needed funds for IMNDA they'll be having a wash in Lackabawn on Sunday 24th August @ 7pm. so we hope you'll come support the lads.  

 

Motor Neurone Disease is an incurable neurological condition that leaves people unable to do the everyday things in life that the rest of us take for granted. Walking, talking and swallowing may become virtually impossible, yet the mind and the senses remain intact in the majority of cases. It is a degenerative life limiting disease with the rate of progression varying greatly from one person to another.

 

The average life expectancy for a person with MND is three to five years following diagnosis depending on the activity of the disease and the particular muscle groups affected. The disease strikes people from teens to older age groups; it does not discriminate between gender and race.

 

In Ireland, one person dies every five days from Motor Neurone Disease and there are in excess of 300 people living with MND at any one time.

Hurling 20/20

Give your views on the future of Hurling
 
GAA President, Liam O’Neill established the Hurling 2020 Committee to look at the game of hurling and to submit proposals for change as appropriate to ensure the improvement of the game over the next 20 years.
 
The committee, under the Chairmanship of former All-Ireland Senior Hurling winning manager Liam Sheedy (Tipperary) has begun the process of consulting widely within the Association at all levels and with GAA supporters to ascertain the areas which require the most immediate attention. With this in mind, Hurling 2020 have launched a survey which will allow all participants to be entered in to a draw for 2 tickets to the 2014 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final.
 
This survey is a key part of the consultation process and its aim is to collate the feedback from the hurling community about the game as it stands and what you would like to see in its future.
Your submission to this survey will form the basis of the committee’s report in the autumn of 2014 with a view to tabling motions as required to the 2015 GAA Annual Congress.
