Thanks to Jimmy and the Avalon for their continued support.
It is important that we continue to support our sponsors as a measure of our appreciation for their sponsorship.
Tomorrow Wednesday June 24th we welcome back our members to Ballycomey and The Prince Grounds. A lot of work had been carried out over the interim period to help maintain and improve our facilities as well as ensuring we have the suitable signage, disinfectant and guidelines in place for the re-opening.
Club pitches will re-open on June 24th (Adult teams) and June 27th (underage and minor teams) it is essential that, prior to these dates, that all participants, especially adult players, parents/guardians of underage players and team personnel, complete the online eLearning module and retain a copy of their certificate of completion. Click on this link to access the module.
https://courses.gaa.ie/Covid19ClubEd/#/ In addition, one of the key control measures that has been put in place as part of a Safe Return to Gaelic Games is the completion of a Health Questionnaire. • Adult players, parents/guardians of underage players and team personnel will be required to complete the online Health Questionnaire once prior to their return to GAA Activities.
• Using the same system, Adult players, parents/guardians of underage players and team personnel will be required to declare, before each training session/game, that their health status has not changed.
The online system for the Health Questionnaire will go live later TODAY, June 23rd and this is the only system that should be used.
The link to the questionnaire is https://returntoplay.gaa.ie
ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE go through your teams Covid Officer or to any of the club executive.
We smashed both targets in style! 😃
The distance travelled yesterday was well over 2,000kms.
75% on foot from people of all ages and around the world. The target was €4,000 and we surpassed that and managed to get in €5,510!
Thanks to each and every one of you for participating, donating so generously and coming together as one community around Castlecomer and surrounding areas.
Great to see, great to be part of and most importantly we have helped in a small way towards one little boy and his family’s goal to receiving suitable medical treatment for Dan.
It was brilliant to see all the clubs posting up, people of all ages taking part and some great family moments throughout.
The go fund me page has now closed and we will hand over the proceeds to do it for Dan campaign.
One thing for certain about Comer and the surrounding area, when the need arises we won’t be found wanting!👏👏
Tomorrow Erins Own,alongside other sports clubs in Castlecomer, are taking part in the do it for dan fundraiser. Can we encourage as many of you as possible to take part in this great community effort.
All the details to donate are up on our clubs Facebook page.

We have decided, following advice, to suspend our lotto until further notice. This is in the interest of everyone’s health and safety.
In the meantime, We have a number of people who have direct debit payments, online purchases and up front payments. We have decided to run a separate draw for this group of people every Monday where we will do a draw for vouchers (3 x €25). These vouchers will be for the local business who have supported our ticket sales and also our club sponsors.
If you want to take part in supporting local business in this challenging time tickets can be purchased online www.erinsowngaa.com/lotto
