Operation Transformation and the GAA
Ireland Lights Up with the GAA is a national initiative to improve the health of the country through GAA clubs and communities across Ireland. GAA clubs across Ireland will be coming on board with RTÉ's Operation Transformation and turning on their floodlights/lighting systems from 7pm to 9pm each Thursday for a six-week period (17th January – 21st February 2019) as Operation Transformation returns to our screens for 2019.
Do you want to get moving and active this New Year, but you have nowhere to go? Do you find it hard to find a safe and well-lit area to go for a walk during the dark winter months? Well, Crookedwood GAA club has the answer!
We’re coming on board with Operation Transformation and the GAA for Ireland Lights Up. Every Thursday from the 17th January – 21st February 2019 our club will be open and lit up for you, your family and friends to come and walk from 7pm to 9pm. We want everyone to come and join us for Ireland Lights Up 2019! All are welcome to come to this event.
Well done to the Westmeath hurlers on their comprehensive victory over Meath in the Kehoe cup semi-final. Shane & Barry were introduced in the second half and both contributed to keeping the Meath comeback at bay, with Barry chipping in with a fine point from play. We now take on Antrim in the final next weekend at home, time, date & venue to be confirmed. Best of luck to all.
Well done also to the footballers who have qualified for the O’Byrne cup final against Dublin next Friday at 8pm in Parnell Park. Crookedwood hurler Ronan Wallace has turned in some fine performances in this competition and we wish him and fellow Multy men, Anthony McGivney and Ciaran Madden, and all involved the best of luck in the final.
Get Well Soon
Best wishes are extended to Tom Connell, Gerry McCarthy and Maura O’Reilly recently. We wish you and all other ill club members all the best on your road to recovery.
