CO-VID 19: In line with the position advised by Limerick County GAA board, Monaleen GAA club respectfully requests parents not to send their children to club grounds during the period of social distancing put in place by the Government.
This position has been taken to limit community transmission of the Coronavirus and in order to protect vulnerable people in our locality. Unfortunately people, both young and old, are still congregating in the clubhouse field. Signs have now been erected clearly  indicating that the pitch is closed, with access prohibited. Adults, please lead by example, parents, please tell your children why it is important to keep a social distance. We must stay apart for the safety of all of our community.
MOTHER'S DAY: Belated Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there. No doubt it was a strange day on Sunday last for some as you may not be able to see your loved ones, but stay strong and keep social distancing.

Mungret St Pauls

Health: Mungret St. Pauls hope all our members and their families are keeping healthy and coping well in these current challenging times. Our primary concern is the health and well-being of all our members, volunteers and those from the community that use our facilities.
While we still have our gates open to allow access to the graveyard, we do wish to remind everyone who attends our grounds to please abide by the social distancing advise. A lot of scenic places and parks are becoming very busy and we urge people to turn around and go somewhere else if there are a lot of people around, this is not just for your safety but for everyone's safety.
The sooner everyone adheres to the HSE guidelines the quicker we can get back playing GAA. We urge all our members and their families to please follow all the protocol that is being asked of you. Please be responsible, cough into your arm, wash your hands properly, avoid close contact with people, avoid crowded places, especially indoors. Follow the travel advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs, stay at home and ring your doctor if you think you have the virus to help stop the spread of whatever infection you may have. You will not know who has a low immune system and more prone to infection so please be aware of how close you may be to people. Only leave your house if it is a necessary journey and leave your children at home if it is possible. The LIT Gaelic Grounds has been announced as becoming a test centre. These centres are by appointment only. Do not go to a test centre without an appointment - you will not be seen.
DO YOU REQUIRE HELP : We would like to invite members of our Club and the wider Community to make contact with us if they need assistance in any way, shopping, lifts, medicine collected, etc. we will provide where possible/capable. We can be contacted by direct message to our facebook, twitter, instagram, email mungretgaa@gmail.com or the club phone 0858679962. Please do not feel as if you are inconveniencing us, even if you just want to talk on the phone to someone for company, everything will be done in the strictest of confidence.
KEEP ACTIVE: Children have been given work to do at home while they are out of school but they still need to be active to use up their built up energy. Why not set up an obstacle course in your back garden where they can use a few drills from their training session, time them and get them to better their time each time (children love a challenge and a target to beat). For the older children in your house they also need to keep active so please allow them to hit a ball off a safe wall on your house if it is the only one available to them. We need to remind parents to please make sure your children are not out socialising with their friends as this is what spreads the virus, allow them extra time on social media to keep in contact with their friends.
CASH FOR CLOBBER : We are still collecting items for our cash for clobber, while you are stuck in your house why not 'Spring Clean' your wardrobes and hot presses. Bags can be left under the canopy at the back of the club house. The club would like to wish continued good health to all members and the wider community. Please adhere to HSE guidelines and show consideration to those around you. We look forward to a return to regular action, whenever this may be. All the information you need is on the HSE website.
