A spokesper­son for O’dwyer’s GAA said: ‘Mas­sive con­grat­u­la­tions to our U10 girls who are now of­fi­cially amaz­ing in their first year of camo­gie af­ter break­ing a Guin­ness World Record in Croke Park in cel­e­bra­tion of the GAA Mu­seum’s 20th an­niver­sary along with 40 clubs across the coun­try!

‘They par­tic­i­pated in the largest ever hurl­ing/camo­gie train­ing ses­sion with 1,772 play­ers and men­tors tak­ing part. It was an amaz­ing night for ev­ery­one in­volved.’

Chil­dren and men­tors rep­re­sent­ing Bally­boughal GFC and St Finian’s GAA also took part in the Guin­ness World Record at­tempt for the ‘World’s Largest Hurl­ing Train­ing Ses­sion’ in Croke Park.

Mean­while, back at O’dwyer’s GAA in Bal­brig­gan, the club has started this month of­fer­ing somet­ing very spe­cial to the com­mu­nity of Bal­brig­gan as part of its Healthy Club project.

Be­tween 7pm and 8pm for four weeks, the whole fam­ily (age 4 - adult) can get down to the club and get some ex­er­cise.

The chil­dren will be catered for at the club with fun­da­men­tal games/skill ses­sions.

There will be three op­tions for the adults aimed at all age groups and fit­ness lev­els.

A spokesper­son for the club ex­plained: ‘We will have a walk­ing group, a run­ning group and a fit­ness class to choose from.

‘The run­ning and walk­ing groups will leave the premises and the fit­ness class will take place at the club. Weight/blood pres­sure and mea­sure­ments will be of­fered as an op­tion.

‘We will end our 4 weeks with a walk in Car­ling­ford on Sun­day 28th Oc­to­ber . The only cost for this ini­tia­tive will be the bus to Car­ling­ford so what are you wait­ing for?!’
