GAA Clubs across Ulster are to receive a very special Club Pack to enable them to celebrate 125 years of the GAA.
The packs, sponsored by O’Neills Sportswear, contain everything that is needed to help clubs play their part in celebrating 125 years of the GAA including:
- A special 125 Flag to be flown at club grounds throughout the anniversary year
- A 125 Wall Planner highlighting significant events
- Foras na Gaeilge Irish Language Pack
- GAA 125 DVD
- Club Maith Tool-Kit
- Ulster GAA Strategy
The 125 Packs will have particular emphasis on planning for the 10th May, a key date for the Association when all GAA clubs across Ireland will host a festivity of activities and events to commemorate 125 years of Gaelic Games – the day will be known as Lá na Chlub.
Also included in the packs are useful guidelines for schools in their preparations for GAA 125 Schools Day on April 24th.
The packs will be available from County Grounds from today (Thursday 9th April) and all clubs are asked to make arrangements with their County Board Secretary for pick-up immediately.
Speaking at the launch of the GAA’s 125 Club Pack, Ulster GAA President Tom Daly said, “Nearly 3,000 GAA clubs throughout the world will celebrate”125” this year. It’s important that our 600-odd Clubs in Ulster should also play their full part. “125” is about being proud and appreciative of everything that we have achieved as an Association since 1884: we need to give it the focus it deserves.
“The pack has been provided to assist Ulster Clubs in organising their own events to mark the 125th Anniversary of the GAA. It is important that in all parts and at all levels of the GAA we take the time to celebrate this land-mark achievement.”
Ulster 125 Club Packs are free for all GAA Clubs and it is the responsibility of Clubs to contact their County Secretary to arrange to pick up their pack as soon as possible.
