The clubhouse closed its doors on March 15th and all football activity halted at that time too. While we didn’t know how long for we decided as a club we could still help orhers both the Gaelic for Mothers and the men’s team virtually travelled the Coastline of Ireland, raising vital funds for “Feed the Heroes”. Each day a volunteer would tally up all the kilometres travelled between each team and mark it up on the map of Ireland. Also during the Covid lockdown St Colmcilles rallied a number of volunteers to help those who were cocooning. In conjunction with Fingal County Council ad Supervalu Pavillion, Swords, the volunteers were able to assist people with the shopping, and chemist orders. Each volunteer was also there for a chat and a catch up with the more vulnerable people in our community.Now that Gaelic games has started back up from the 24th june, the lads team have been training hard and organizing challenge matches. The juvenile section have also returned to training each Wednesday and Saturday for the under 8’s and 9’s, while the nursery will come back in September. Unfortunately due to the current circumstances we have decided not to run a summer camp this year. But we do hope maybe to run something later for the kids.
The Gaelic for mothers and others also saw a return on Monday 6th July, and are always looking for new players. Even if you’ve never kicked a football, you could try this initiative from the LGFA. Its non competitive and non contact, an all round bit of fun while learning to play Gaelic football. Our club Lottery will hopefully return soon also and we would like to thank everyone for their support through these difficult times.The club have taken every precaution to make sure we all return to Gaelic Games safely.
