NAOMH GALL SUMMER CAMPS
The camps take place at the Falls Park. Attendance is open to school children aged 7 to 14 years old. Payment can be made on Tuesdays @ youth club, Saturdays @ club shop or on the Monday of the Summer Camp week to facilitate parents to pay by instalments over the next few months. Cash only. The new Cumann Oige kit which will include bag, jersey, shorts and socks will be included if booking more than one week. Further information including booking forms, fees, dates is all available to download in the forms section of this website
After a recommendation/suggestion at our AGM we have revised our membership fees; whilst this is the first increase in 3 years we have endeavoured to keep the increase at a minimum where possible and they are not reflective of the vast increase in the clubs insurance and affiliation fees. They will however help our/your club to address some of ever increasing costs in running Naomh Gall
If you would like to spread the cost over the year a S.O. form is available in the club shop, can be downloaded from the website, or obtained from behind the bar and will also be available at Registration sessions.
Please remember it is your responsibility to ensure your/ your child’s membership is paid. We would appreciate everyone’s co-operation in this matter. Fees must be paid by 31st May 2015 unless paid by S/O.”

John Martin: The road to Damascus
AS regular readers will know, it’s not often that I make the right choice. Take last week’s prediction that Antrim would secure progression to the Leinster Championship quarter-finals by beating Westmeath on Sunday – I was wrong by the small matter of 17 points.
Well done to our U10 girls footballers for todays displays, doesn’t do them justice for how good they done and how much they entertained all the spectators who came to Milltown for a great day of Gaelic culture that was on display. After not winning the first match we went on to win against, na Fianna from Dublin, Fingallians from Dublin, we drew with Naomh Brid and won against Lamh Dhearg. That got us into the semi-finals where we played Fingallians again and were victorious again.The amount we scored doesn’t matter to us, what is more pleasing is the fact that we didn’t concede a single score. We then faced Moneyglass in the final and according to all ,including the Dublin teams,it was one of the most fiercely competitive matches they have witnessed at this age group!! This is because we train like we want to play and we play to improve and to show how good all our panel are. Unfortunately Moneyglass pipped us by a single point in the final and congratulations to them,they are a great team. However like we tell our players”the other team won,but nobody lost”.We had 14 players today and everyone played their part brilliantly right throughout the panel but special mention must go to our captain and MVP, Aobh Dunn who was magnificent throughout the blitz. So a great day all round and back to training this week girls,Positive,Forward moving football,never stand still!,well done from all the Management team,N.G.A
Thanks also to everyone that helped to make such a successful day at Milltown
