Hurling
We were delighted to finally get back out on the training pitch with our underage hurlers. As a committee we would like to thank the wider club for all their endeavours to get us back out training, and the huge amount of work that went on behind the scenes to make last week happen.

Our under 13s, under 15s and under 17s all started back on Tuesday evening and there was a real sense of excitement among the players as well as the coaches to be able to meet up and train together. We are very grateful to our committee, coaches and Covid officers for all their efforts in making our return to play run as smoothly as it did. Training continues next week for these groups at the times outlined below.

Under 13 - Tuesday, 6.15pm to 7.15pm @ Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Top Pitch; Sunday, 10.30am to 11.30am @ Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Top Pitch.
Under 15 - Tuesday, 6.30pm to 7.30pm @ Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Main Pitch; Thursday, 6.15pm to 7.15pm @ Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Top Pitch.
Under 17 - Tuesday, 5pm to 6pm @ Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Top Pitch; Sunday, 12.45pm to 1.45pm @ Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh Top Pitch.

Sunday morning saw the return of our younger age groups, with our under 9, under 7 and under 5s all starting out again. There was great energy and enthusiasm among our young stars and it was a joy to see them back out with hurls in their hands again. In what was a very successful morning we welcomed over 40 hurlers to Páirc Aodh Ruadh, and we look forward to seeing those numbers grow over the coming weeks. Again, a huge thanks to all of our coaches and our covid officers for all their work in helping make sure Sunday was a success.

If any parent would like their child to join any of our younger age groups, please contact John Larkin on 086-1076883. Children born in the years 2016 will be under 5; 2015 and 2014 are under 7; And those born in 2012 and 2013 are under 9.

Ballyshannon Bingo
We had another really enjoyable night of bingo last Friday with €2,200 paid out to 31 different prize winners. Well done to Linda Clyne taking the €500 jackpot and Patrice Cox taking the €250 mini jackpot. Our other house winners included Margaret McGarrigle, Ciara Kane, Melanie Lewis, Shay Cleary, Geraldine Gallagher, Clodagh Ward, Phyllis Crowe and Mairead McCormack. The €1,000 bank holiday snowball survived so it rolls on to €1,050 this week. We're looking forward to the next instalment of Ballyshannon Bingo this Friday night at the new start time of 9pm, where we'll have a total prize pot of €3,250 to play for. Once again we will be back broadcasting to the world from Bingo HQ via Zoom at our new time of 8.30pm. There will be single line, double line and house prizes on all games.

Supporting Pat
We are encouraging club members to get behind a fund-raiser being run by Carlow Town hurling and camogie club. Well-known Ballyshannon exile Pat O'Brien is taking part in the Barrowside Challenge fund-raiser. Remarkably, Pat will complete his 5km walk with the use of his walking aid, which he uses in his battle against Parkinson's disease. Pat is very proud of his Donegal links, and has immersed himself in Carlow GAA. He is a former county secretary, a former secretary of Coiste na nÓg, a former chairman of Carlow camogie and past president of Carlow GAA. Pat has given a lifetime of service to the promotion of our national games, as a player, mentor and administrator. If ever anyone was deserving of our support, Pat surely is. To sponsor Pat head along to clubcarlow.ie.

Covid-19 Club Education eLearning Module
We ask players, parents and guardians, team mentors and indeed anyone thinking of being in the environs of a GAA pitch in the next few months to complete the GAA's online Covid-19 Club Education eLearning Module. This eLearning module aims to inform those involved with GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association clubs on their roles and responsibilities for the safe resumption of Gaelic games activities. It is particularly aimed at Covid supervisors and officers, players, team personnel, and the parents and guardians of underage players. However, anyone present at training sessions or games should complete it to gain an understanding of the Safe Return Guidelines.
