Do you find it hard to find a safe and well-lit area to go a walk during the dark winter months? Well, your local GAA Club has the answer! We’re coming on board with the Operation Transformation and the GAA for Ireland Lights Up. Every Thursday from the 9th January to 26th February The Orchard will be open and lit up for you, your family and friends to come and walk from 7.15pm to 8.30pm. Sign in is required in the old dressing room first and we will all walk, run or waddle together at 7.30pm. We want everyone to come and join for Ireland Lights Up 2020! All are welcome to come to this event.
