Easter Visitors

Over the Easter weekend, April 12th, 13th and 14th, we welcome the young footballers and their parents from North London Shamrocks GAA club to our club where they will play in tournament games against St Johns and a number of other clubs from Sligo, Leitrim and Mayo at age groups U9, U11, U13 and U14. These games will take place in Stenson Park, Cuilbeg and in Cleveragh. This is a major undertaking for our club but we are confident that our members will come up trumps as usual.

Feile Peil nOg

In 2019 Connacht GAA will be hosting Feile Peil Na nOg over the weekend of 28th, 29th and 30th of June. St Johns will host two of the visiting teams, an U14 Girls team and an U14 Boys team. This means that we will have to organise host families for 48 young players and 8 mentors in our club (2 players per family). If you are able to help us out with this task more information is available on our club website or from club members. The visiting teams could be coming from any part of Ireland, from the UK or the USA.
