After all the excitement of the Mini All-Ireland last weekend it will be somewhat quieter but no less busy at Clane GAA this weekend. Last weekend we had over 300 children from the community of Clane participate in the inaugural Clane GAA Mini All-Ireland as players, coaches and referees. The highlight of the weekend was seeing all the kids marching behind the band on the main pitch before proudly singing our National Anthem. You will find lots of photos and videos from the weekend on our many social media channels, search #ClaneGaaMAI. There are also some short videos which capture the atmosphere and spirit of the occasion on our new Official Clane GAA YouTube channel. Please subscribe if you haven't already done so.
