Senior Club Notes 22nd October 2018

Our very own Brid McGoldrick who is Longford Gaa’s vice chairperson and National Healthy club chairperson, opened the National GAA Healthy club Conference last Saturday in Croke Park, to over 500 people in inspirational fashion. It was a very proud moment for Killoe and Longford.

Killoe Emmet Og Healthy club presented their project to clubs from all over the country. Our ‘Just Play Football’ project consists of three short videos which will be released in the next week featuring children’s interviews, referees interviews and a summary of the project. Local superstars feature in the videos. Stayed tuned for more details.

A third community video will be available to purchase before Christmas where everyone interviewed will feature.

A massive congratulations to our chairman Jim McGoldrick, who got acknowledged as a local hero for his visionary role in Killoe and Longford for advancing the Healthy Club project. Many clubs nationwide do not get the support from their executive. In Killoe we are very lucky to have support from all three executives, the minor, senior and ladies committees are behind us in a very hands on way. We would like to sincerely thank them all and all the parish for their help and support for making the projects successful. To all the Healthy Club team members thank you for getting the project across the line on Saturday and especially to Claie Kiernan as healthy club leader in Killoe for her tireless work on this project in recent months.
