Gaeltacht Scholarships 2019

Rules for Gaeltacht scholarships 2019


This year there will be six scholarships of €300 with two confined to entrants who have competed in Scor/Scor na nÓg competitions.


All entrants must be members of a GAA club in Co. Roscommon and a secondary School student in 2018/19 school year.


Three of the scholarships are sponsored by and are confined to Colaiste Cu Chulainn in Gweedore. Courses in Gweedore are €595 and last for two weeks.


Successful entrants in 2017/2018 are not eligible to enter in 2019. Scholarships are for attendance at residential Gaeltacht courses.



To enter please complete an entry form and one essay from the two titles -

1.        Na rialacha nua atá molta don pheil Gaelach – an bhfeabhasóidh siad an pheil mar chluiche?  


2.       An chóir níos mó a dhéanamh chun an iomáint agus camóige a chur chun cinn i gcontae Ros Comáin?


Entries must be emailed (application form and essay) to the cultural officer at [email protected] or dropped in/posted to the county board offices to arrive by Friday January 11th, 2019.


There is no cash alternative to the scholarship and successful candidates will have to complete a residential Gaeltacht summer course to receive the grant. Decision of the committee is final.












Reminders there are card every Monday Evening in the Hyde Centre from 8.30pm.  Cards will resume 7th of January thank you to everyone who helped out and supported.




Gaelic Player Development


If your coach:player ratio for U6s or U8s is greater than 1:5 it’s time for a recruitment drive. Think about using an U16 squad on a rota. The players can become your Assistant Coaches, copying your lead and making numbers manageable. You’ll be surprised at the naturals you find.













Are you in to win in 2018?

The Club Lotto is an important fundraising tool for the club. If you are not already playing the lotto please consider signing up. You can sign-up and play for only €2 a week. You can also pick up an envelope in most shops and bars around town and play an individual draw, again for only €2 a draw. The póta óir/jackpot is now a massive €10,000!.  Roscommon Gaels Club Lotto committee is sending out an appeal to all members and friends of the club looking for anyone who could assist in promoting and selling the club lotto. At present and for many years now a small but dedicated group of Roscommon Gaels members have been keeping our club lotto alive resulting in much needed funding flowing into the club. This funding is vital to ensure that we have the financial resources to support one of the finest GAA clubs in the country.

Anyone who could assist with weekend ticket sales would be greatly appreciated.

If you can help to make the above initiative a success you will be contributing in a significant way to the ongoing success of Roscommon Gaels.

Please respond ASAP if interested.

Defibrillator Locations

We would like to make members and parents aware of the location of Defibrillator in the club. Hopefully they will not be needed but can be a life saver. We have a Defibrillator on the outside wall of the new changing rooms.
