This document is the template for the Official Fixtures that the Secretary distributes weekly but is not considered as Official notification of Fixtures if downloaded as only fixtures sent from the County Secretary can be considered Official. This should be people’s first port of call for information regarding Longford GAA events. We also have an Events Calendar on our website at http://longfordgaa.ie/cg-calendar/ This calendar contains everything a Longford GAA person might need to know from our full fixtures program to Club workshops to County Board meetings to National fixtures to other large sporting events so as everyone can see what’s happening in the weeks and months ahead. Any changes made will be updated on the calendar in real time and will constantly evolve as different scenarios arise. Longford GAA Website We are doing a lot of work updating or website www.longfordgaa.ie with information and resources that people might be interested in and trying to use the website as the first source for all information someone might want to find out. Some new additions include the Master fixtures plan which can be downloaded by clicking http://longfordgaa.ie/download-fixtures/ additional information includes an updated Go Games section that includes fixtures, rules, things to know as well as U12 fixtures and rules for all our competitions. www.longfordgaa.ie/coaching-go-games/ and click Downloads. We now have all underage mentors contacts available by following www.longfordgaa.ie/contacts/ and clicking the relevant tab. We also have a new referees section that is available on the home page and finally something that is still a work in progress, as there is a lot of information to collate, but we are developing a player profile section for all our football squads that will include a photo and some player information that can be accessed through www.longfordgaa.ie/development-squad-news/ U12 Longford Only Mini League Our Longford only competitions start this week on the 21st of July, there will be 3 Divisions in this Competition with 19 teams taking part as Clonguish Óg & Killoe Óg both field two teams each – please see the Master Fixtures Document for the most up to date fixtures. Development Squads All information on our squads will be updated on our website at http://longfordgaa.ie/development-squad-news/ and clicking the relevant squad. Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps Our Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps entered week three this week with almost 300 kids in attendance between two camps, Newtownforbes & Ardagh. After week two of our camps it became apparent that places are in high demand as so far our numbers are up 15% on last year. For this reason everyone interested in attending any of our remaining 4 camps you should be advised that the only way to ensure your place at one of our camps is to book online before the cut off (12 noon on the Friday before the camp starts) please don’t leave until the Monday morning as there is no guarantee that places will be available and those walk-ups will be the last to receive their gear. All our coaches will have at least a foundation award, have completed the Code of Ethics and Best Practice in Sport course and be Garda Vetted and we will ensure that the GAA Cúl Camps provide the highest quality of coaching amongst all camps this and every summer. The Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp website is live and can be view at https://www.kelloggsculcamps.gaa.ie/ where all details of our camps can be accessed and online bookings are the best way of making you booking and it ensures that your gear will be available during the camp (the same cannot be said with on the day bookings)..
