GAA Easter Camp Success

The Shelmalier GAA Easter Camp which took place in Hollymount on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of last week was an enormous success.

With over 125 boys and girls take the opportunity to development their hurling, camogie and football skills. The club would like to thank Sheila Roche who was the overall coordinator of the camp and to the large group of coaches and helpers who gave so freely of their time to make the camp such a success.  The club would also like to thank all the young players and their parents who were so helpful and cooperative throughout the three days of the camp.
