Vhi GAA Cul camps 2009

Thanks to all the children who turned out in large numbers at last weeks Vhi GAA cul camps in Kinlough, Mohill & Drumshanbo. Special word of thanks to the Annaduff GAA club for making their grounds available to us on Wednesday morning as the pitch in Mohill was unplayable following Tuesday evenings downpour. Leitrim County star Dermot Reynolds, this years Vhi GAA cul camp ambassador, has been calling to all camps, giving advise and answering all sorts of questions, so kids have your question ready for Dermot when he calls into your camp. Next week is the last week of our camps so children dont miss out on a great week of activities in Leitrim, Drumkeerin & Fenagh (Sean O Heslins).

Parents and children who have registered or are planning to attend the Fenagh camp, please note that this camp will now take place in Sean O Heslins GAA grounds Ballinamore. The change of venue is due to onÓgoing works on the pitch in Fenagh.


Places are still available on next weeks three camps Drumkeerin, Fenagh ( Ballinamore Sean OHeslins) & Leitrim Gaels. Registration can be by application form or by means of the new on line system.

This new system can be accessed from the GAA website, or from the Leitrim GAA website simply by clicking on the VHI logo.
