KELLOGG’S GAA CUL CAMP
As school holidays are almost upon us our focus now changes to our local Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp. As in previous years these camps provide boys and girls – between the ages of 6 and 13 – with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays which revolves around maximising enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games while also supplying each child with a full kit and gear bag. This year our local camp will take place again in Lanesboro from 30th July to 3rd August. Discounted bookings can be availed of by visiting www.gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps. If you are considering sending your son/
daughter to a camp this summer we would definitely recommend a Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp. For all up to date information please see the Coaching and Games Notes in the Longford Leader each week or visit www.longfordgaa.ie.
