Elphin GAA Update March 21st: We’re officially a Healthy Club!

Elphin GAA Club would like to thank all our underage stars and their parents for their participation in our St. Patrick’s Day Parade float.

We’re officially a Healthy Club

Elphin GAA became a Healthy Club on St Patrick’s day. This has been the culmination of some hard work by our committee. We wish to thank those who completed our survey and those who attended the launch. Thanks to John Glancy for sponsoring the fruit for the launch. The results of the survey are available on the GAA Facebook page. We are planning some events at present, a Community Catch-Up and Darkness into Light walk. Details will be available soon. We are still looking for input from the public, so anyone who has an idea of an initiative we could try please contact Una at 0861723540.
