Kellogg’s GAA Cúl camps

Kellogg’s are the new National sponser for the GAA Cúl camps. Currently in the shops are promotional packs of Kelloggs Cornflakes and Rice Krispies containing a special code which if used when registering on line will give a €5 reduction. Leitrim GAA coaching and games will operate 12 regional camps during the month of July. All children attending will receive a full camp kit including bag. On line booking has commenced, see Leitrim GAA or National GAA website for details, and written application forms have been distributed last week.

This year the cost of attending our camps has been reduced and are as follows, 1st child €55, 2nd child €45, with all additional brothers or sisters only €40. This reduction along with the Kellogg’s promotion make our camps really great value.
