Ballyduff GAA

It has come to the attention of the club that some comments left under some of their social media posts contain links to the streaming of games. They urge you not to click on the link. The club never stream any of their Juvenile games. This problem has been happening to a numbered of GAA  clubs and our club will continue to monitor it for and ban all uninvited messages.
This week the results have been a bit of a mixed bag. The U15 and U13 football and LGFA were out at games. The club felt that once again the grading system leaves a lot to be desired with some heavy defeats followed by huge wins. The club however are proud to see the club competing and to see all the players developing their skills so well. A big thank you to all the coaches for giving their time. This as we all know has need a strange year with of fixtures coming thick and fast.
The “Come and Try” Camogie initiative continues until the end of August. All are welcome to come along on Tuesday from 6.10pm to 7.10pm as the girls and their parents enjoy an enjoyable hour learning the basic skills of Camogie.
The club is exploring the possibility of setting up a rounders team in the parish. This is a very popular game and a superb games for fitness and fun. Please express your interest by contacting Liz on 087 7609679

Back To School

Hard to believe  that it is already time to open up our school’s again and welcome our students back in. We wish them all the very best of luck as they start out on their journey whether they  are starting off at preschool or Montessori, heading into Junior Infants, off to Secondary school or starting a course, apprenticeship or taking up a new job. I know by now you will have all the bits and pieces that you need but I’m asking you all to bring one other little thing with you every day and that is kindness. If we all show a little kindness each day then we are doing well.
