White’s Cross GAA – First for Cúl Camps Again This Summer!

White’s Cross GAA has been running a GAA summer camp each year since 2003 and is delighted to now announce details of the 2016 camp. The White’s Cross GAA Cúl Camp will run from Monday, June 27th to Friday, July 1st, 2016. The start time for the camp is 10am each morning with the camp finishing all five days at 2:30pm.
The cost of the camp is €55 per child, while a second child in a family will cost €45 euro and a third and more children will cost €40 each. The Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp gear including a jersey, training top and backpack are included in the cost of the camp. Last year’s introduction of the training top proved immensely popular and this year’s kit looks even better, with real eye-catching colours!
White’s Cross GAA Kellogg’s Cúl Camp (Code: CK01) will cater for boys & girls from 5 to 13 years. More details about registering for the camp will be circulated at juvenile training sessions in the coming weeks and information leaflets will also be distributed through Scoil Naomh Michéal, Upper Glanmire National School. Alternatively you can also get further details and register online at gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps.
To celebrate the return of this summer’s Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps, Kellogg’s are giving participants the chance to win €5,000 worth of training gear for their team plus a €500 voucher to spend on their family.
To enter, pick up a promotional pack of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies or Kellogg’s new 5 Grain or Nutty Chewy bars in stores and then follow the steps to register your child for the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp. You will need the last 4 digits of the barcode of your Kellogg’s promotional pack and to answer a simple question.

Lots of colour

Parading!

Upper Glanmire Community Association had a fantastic turnout for their fourth St. Patrick’s Day parade and festival. White’s Cross GAA Juvenile Club was delighted to participate in the parade which commenced at the Community Centre before parading down to Ros Ard and returning back up to the hall once again. The huge attendance then adjourned to the sports hall where there were lots and lots of fun activities for young and not so young alike!
White’s Cross GAA would like to complement the Upper Glanmire Community Association on their great work in piecing together this very special day for our community – it was obvious for all to see that a vast amount of preparation went into organising and executing the busy day.
Moreover we say a big thank you to the parents of our young members who ensured that the green and white White’s Cross jerseys were sparkling clean for the parade – colours that were very much in keeping with the day itself!

White’s Cross GAA hugely appreciates all the support being given to the lotto over the years – míle buíochas to all those who buy tickets. All money raised goes towards the improvement of the infrastructure at White’s Cross GAA pitch, and it is fair to say huge improvements have been made to our facilities over the past number of years: new juvenile pitch, hurling wall, walkway, astroturf, outdoor gym equipment, new dressingrooms & meeting room, upgrade of surface on main pitch etc. Without the finance provided from the lotto these projects would simply not have been possible.

White’s Cross GAA also appreciates the support of the local businesses, in facilitating the sale of tickets – if you are in a position to support these businesses please do – ní neart go cur le chéile / there is no strength unless we pull together. Let’s keep it local when and where we can folks! Tickets can be purchased from the following locations: The Boothouse Bar, The Stirrup Bar, The Blackman Bar, Hennessey’s Daybreak, Southern Fuels Bucklearys Cross, McCarthy’s Sport Shop Glanmire, O’Ceannaigh Bar Glanmire & Esther’s Barbers Glanmire. Tickets can also be purchased from Lotto Committee Members.

Alternatively tickets can be bought online – visit whitescrossgaa.ie for details.
Tickets cost €2 each or 3 for €5. Alternatively a yearly ticket can be purchased for €45 – note these can only be purchased from a member of the lotto committee – get in touch with any member you know in the Club and they will point you in the right direction.
