Clubs take centre stage on day of 125 Celebrations
As many as 400,000 GAA members across Ireland and overseas attended club events over the weekend to celebrate Lá na gClub as part of the GAAs 125 Celebrations.
The Association is asking clubs to send their video clips and photographs to Croke Park by email for inclusion in a collection of memories of the day.
On a weekend free of competitive inter-county games, clubs across the organisation were encouraged to organise events that underlined their links with their host communities by placing a special emphasis on family, fun, games and culture.
Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Criostóir Ó Cuana praised clubs who actively supported and promoted the day across the country and expressed satisfaction that the event helped underline the special place of the club at the heart of the organisation.
He said: "Today was a special day for clubs across the country and I was privileged to be present at a number of club events over the course of the weekend to witness first hand the excellent work that our clubs are doing.
"These events offered club members involved in the various different activities of club life the chance to come together on the same occasion and celebrate their involvement and membership of the same unit.
"Our clubs lie at the heart of our Association and I believe the success of todays festivities underlined the importance of the work they do."
Clubs are asked to send their video clips and digital photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org to allow the association to compile a collection of the events that took place today.
