The Gooch Comes to Clane

On Saturday afternoon Colm “The Gooch” Cooper came to Clane GAA to present medals to our juvenile football players. There was a large crowd in attendance and Colm provided our young people with wonderful advice and urged them to practice their skills. It was a great occasion and Colm was most generous to young and old in giving of his time in posing for photos afterwards.  A day to remember for all our young and not so old Gaelic Football fans.  Here are some of photos from the afternoon.

Games Development Administrator

The club is delighted to announce the introduction of underage coaching to Scoil Bhríde girls primary school. This is a hugely significant move in promoting our games in our schools.  It’s almost a decade since ‘Tommy Carew’ retired from his role of promoting & fostering Gaelic games in Scoil Bhride. Henceforth, its envisaged that we will maintain this school link.  Commencing in March, fifty hours of quality coaching will be provided to the school.  Special thanks to Principal Eimear Hennessy & our designated Games Development Administrator, John Doran, for supporting this initiative. The hours will be evenly split between both football and camogie.
