Well done to everyone who attended the Kellogs Cul Camp this year and of course all the organisers who helped make it happen. The weather threw a bit of a spanner in the works at times and made for an exciting finish to Thursday. It is always great to see a strong camogie and ladies football presence there at our camps each year. We were the only Limerick Cul Camp last week which meant we were spoilt with the amount of Cul Camp coaches who put our 200 players through their paces. We could not have run the camp with out the help of our club volunteers who were put to work straight away getting all the children signed in, Covid checked and into their groups on the pitch. It has taken 24 coaches and about 6 Cul Camp supervisors to make this camp run smoothly, we are delighted to have two of our own players involved as coaches- Eoin Ryan (Bosco) and Patrick Dwane.
We had a surprise visitor on Friday as Aaron Gillane came along and had a chat with each group of children. There were some very interesting questions asked of Aaron but none too hard that he could not answer.
The camps aim is to bring together young people from different sporting and cultural backgrounds using coaching sessions in both Gaelic games and soccer. These on-field activities, led by top coaches from both codes, were complemented by an innovative off-field programme that is intended to enhance the life-skills of the participants in a number of targeted areas.
