Hosts
Next week we will be hosting the Under 14’s from St Paul’s Academy in partnership with Dulwich Harps as their begin their Gaelic Football tour of Ireland.  We really appreciate the families who offered to host the children and keep them for their duration of their stay in Galbally.  They will arrive at Galbally Community Centre on Thursday 21st May around 8pm.  They have a action packed week, this is only some of their plans they will be doing:  Friday they will play a game against St Patricks Academy Dungannon and heading out for dinner that night , Saturday 23rd they will attend a U14 Blitz at Kileavy Gaa (Armagh) and following that there will be a Under Age Disco at Galbally Community centre that night, ages from P7- to over 14’s can attend the disco.  On Sunday they will be attending the Ulster Championship game between Cavan and Monaghan.  We want to make them all feel welcome in Galbally and make their experience one to remember, we are lucky to have one of our own Galbally exiles Micheal Donnelly as their head coach and main organiser of their trip.  We hope they all enjoy their stay with all the families.
