The Kevin Killeen tournament takes place next Saturday in Belclare starting at 10.00 am. We are asking parents if they can bring some refreshments, buns, sandwiches, crisps drinks etc. on the day. We also need volunteers to take turns at serving refreshments.

"Boot Exchange Programme – Starting Soon"
Do you have boots lying around garages, cupboards or just left behind, often in perfect condition? We will be starting a boot exchange which will be open to boys and girls and will probably only really function up to the Under 12's level maximum. Families can bring whatever boots they have around the house that they are not using /doesn’t fit to Belclare for passing on to other families. Kids at that age fly through the sizes and it can be expensive to keep them in boots. It will be a free exchange but we may well have a box available with an option (but not expectation) to donate.
At this stage we are planning that the exchange will commence in Belclare on Saturday 1 October from 9:30 to 10:30, so spread the word.

The Club offers its sympathy to Frank and Val Cooley on the death of their brother, Michael John Cooley Cloonmore Tuam and Manchester, to Oliver Miskell, Corofin on the death of his nephew Martin Miskell, Feigh and to the relatives of Michael Hession, Gortbeg who died last week. . May they rest in Peace.

Club Notes 1 August

CLUB NOTES:

The officers, management, players and full membership of Corofin GAA Club extend their deepest sympathy to Declan, Mary, Roisín and Ciara McHugh on the devastating loss of their beloved Jack following a tragic accident while on holidays in Munich.
We pray for the consolation of his immediate family, grandmother, Noreen Greaney, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. We also pray for comfort for his team-mates and mentors in all the grades and codes in which he played.

At times like this we are shocked in disbelief and think that there are no words to express our grief and pain. But there are words and there are memories that we can hold onto. Memories that Jack loved played football with Ballinderry NS in the Raftery cup and in other primary school competitions. He loved playing with St Jarlath’s in the famous blue and white colours. He loved hurling with Sylane and he loved playing football with Corofin. He loved sport and he loved life. Lots of training, lots of games, sometimes winning, always competing, joyful days and treasured memories. We will hold these memories in our hearts forever and a day.

We wish to thank all those who helped in so many different ways over the last few days, at the reposing in the family home in Ballintubber on Monday, at the removal on Tuesday morning and at the funeral Mass in St. Colman’s Church Corofin.

May Jack’s gentle soul rest in peace.
