Virtual 5K Fundraiser.

Our Virtual 5K fundraiser took place over the Easter Weekend and it was a tremendous success with ,at the time of writing ,over twice our original target of five thousand euro being raised.
Twenty "Captains" organised teams of friends and family to walk 5 kilometres within their own 5 K limit ,each one of the teams were then sponsored to do the walk and this was done through a Gofundme page .
All of the walking was done in a socially distanced manner and it was great to see people walking all around the community throughout the weekend but still staying safe and keeping the required distance apart.
So from Sandyhill to Gurteen and Ballinacole to Ballyeightra and all other points people were out doing their thing on what was a beautiful fine weekend,well done to all who took part.
Many thanks must go to the Captains of the teams,the organiser of the event Jack Healy,the Commitee of the club and to Martin Flynn who's idea it was to run the event . 
Proceeds will go to finishing of the Astroturf pitch in Dungourney and to completing the walkway around our own own pitch in Ballydonaghmore.
Matches and Training

The adult GAA community got no good news from the Government last week with no definitive timeframe given for when club teams can go back to any activities training or matches .
Inter county  teams will be allowed back  training in mid April but we will have to be patient before we see our own club teams togging out again, hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.
On the plus side underage teams will be allowed to return to training on April 26th albeit in pods of 15 and non contact.
