Kilruane MacDonaghs Notes March-24-2020
The club has an ever-growing group of volunteers who are ready and willing to help anybody in the community who needs messages, fuel, prescriptions etc collected. Please contact our co-ordinators Martina 08798902128, Brian 0872535695 or Gilbert 0872176452 in the strictest confidence and we will do our best to help. All our volunteers will be adhering to the HSE Guidelines in relation to Social Distancing and Hand Hygiene.
We have also linked up with the Cloughjordan Community Response Group. This week they are distributing over 1,000 information leaflets throughout the parish.
There has been a phenomenal response to the Skills Challenge launched by our Healthy Club Committee. The boys and girls have shown great creativity in performing a multiplicity of skills in both hurling and football.
On Twitter the videos have over 20,000 views. Oran Farrell was our first out of the blocks and his video has clocked up almost 4,000 views. Our youngest entrant was thirteen-month-old Rian Harte whose display of walking skills has attracted almost 1,000 viewers. We even received a video from New York with Conor Carty showcasing his football skills.
Boys and girls are asked to make a short video which shows them performing hurling or football skills. Some may opt to try the 30 Second Challenge. How many roll lifts can you do in 30 seconds? How many strikes off the wall can you do in 30 seconds? You can enter as often as you wish. All entries will be put into a draw for the new Kilruane MacDonaghs jersey.
The Healthy Club Committee has decided to offer four of the new Kilruane MacDonaghs jerseys as prizes. There are two jerseys for the boys and two for the girls. In addition, there will be some sliotars to be won.
Tag us on Twitter or Facebook or WhatsApp your video to Gilbert 0872176452.
Over 40s Challenge
The Healthy Club Committee is inviting our over 40s to accept the 30 second challenge. When you submit your video, you can nominate a boy or girl and their name will be entered into the draw.
Kilruane MacDonaghs would like to thank all our members and supporters for their co-operation, patience and understanding during this difficult time. We are aware that many are disappointed that our facilities are closed and that we had to suspend both the Lotto and Bingo. We took those decisions in the interests of the Health and Safety of all our members and supporters.
