Juvenile GAA resumes
This Wednesday evening, April 28, with the easing of lockdown restrictions we send best wishes to all our U6, U8, U10 and U12s and their coaches and parents as they resume training after a lengthy stint away from the pitch.
With the added bonus of the hurling wall and astro turf enclosure near completion it will certainly add variety to the training sessions and hopefully swell the numbers coming to the field.
Indeed if there are any young boys or girls out there who wish to join Sologhead GAA Club come along on any Wednesday evening and you will be made very welcome by any of our coaches.
For all our adult player membership the wait to resume training continues but the vibes emerging from Government spin masters would suggest a return to action is around the corner and may be just a matter of weeks away.
