Dublin minor panel 2016
Congratulations to Tarah O'Sullivan and Hannah O'Neill who have been named on the Dublin Minor panel for 2016. Both Tarah and Hannah were members of last year's Dublin Minor Panel so their names are already on our County Reps page. Tarah has also been given the honour of captaining the team this year. Best of luck girls!!
You may recall that we launched our club on line registration facility during 2015 and this makes it easier for us to manage our Club and helps us to communicate more effectively with you, our members. It also offers the Club a number of much needed opportunities to raise additional funding. Members who pay their membership online before Jan. 31st will benefit from a 15% reduction in annual fees, as passed at the recent AGM.
Registration is open now and will close on April 30th. Please ensure your registration is completed by then. In accordance with previous years, for a registration to be valid, payment must be received. For members who may be experiencing financial difficulties please contact our club registrar Niall O'Kelly at email@example.com and your registration will be processed mindful of your circumstances.
A Fundamentals coaching course will be held in the Man O War GAA club, Co Dublin on Saturday the 20th of February from 10am to 4pm. This is the first step on the coaching pathway course participants must be 16 years or over.
A Level One coaching course will take place in Fingallians GAA club, Swords on the 27th of February (Day 1) and on the 9th of April (Day 2) from 10am to 4pm. This course is developed to challenge existing coaches to look more in depth at coaching principles and practices. Coaches will apply information to solve coaching scenarios in practical situations. Course participants must be over 18 years and hold a FUNdamentals course Certificate. (Note GAA Foundation cert is not applicable). The level one course consists of two 6-hour contact days. All participants must complete a logbook between day 1 and day 2 with participants completing both days of the course in order to obtain their certification.
The club extends its condolences to club players Caroline and Emma Dawson and their parents, John and Anne, on the death of Anne's mother Miriam Brassil earlier this week. May she Rest In Peace.

A reminder to all teams that Kilbogget is still closed for the winter break and is currently scheduled to re-open the weekend of January 16th / 17th. If the bad weather continues, it is likely that this date may move out. Mentors will be informed should this be the case. Seapoint will be available in early February for training on Tuesday and Thursday's only and original time slots will be kept. Team managers are asked to inform Gordon Bell when they return training so we can keep track of usage.
The club had a huge number of representatives at the recent DubStars games on January 3rd. Ciara Mac Kenna was selected for the Junior game and turned in a terrific performance in the full back line. For the senior game, a remarkable 7 players were selected. The “magnificent seven” were: Sinead Goldrick, Niamh Ryan, Fiona Claffey, Amy Ring, Niamh Collins, Hannah Noonan and Ciara Crotty. Sinead, Niamh Ryan, Fiona and Amy all scored in the game and Niamh Collins had the honour of captaining the DubStars team. Congrats to all!
