Best wishes to Barry, Jake and the Tipperary senior hurlers in the Munster final against Limerick on Sunday next in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
Please complete the health questionnaire each morning of the camp. A number of people still haven't added "Cúl Camp" to their Foireann profile and will not be allowed to enter if they don't. It will speed up admission hugely if people can complete it before 9.00 each morning as completed names are recorded on the roll rather than delaying checking the phone.
Each day the roll call will be taken at the entry to the inside field. There is a fence set up for people to queue in an orderly and socially distant fashion. Any adults, please wear a face covering at drop off and collection times. Collections will take place at the same place. We will ask older siblings to bring younger ones out with them. The youngest groups will be last out and handed over to parents. Please be extremely vigilant in the car park. Parking on the road may be necessary also due to the large numbers.
The camp starts at 10.00 each day and finishes at 14.00. There are two short breaks for the children to have a healthy pack lunch and plenty of water. Please encourage the children to use the bins provided.
Please ensure the children have raincoats or change of top. Usual equipment for hurling, football - helmet, hurl, shin guards, gumshield, etc.
Any parent that can volunteer to help out please text Niall, anyone with availability for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday would be very welcome.

The Under 11 hurling Championship commenced with gusto as our three Under 11 teams went into action at the weekend with their first round games. Our Nenagh Blues team played and defeated Roscrea in Roscrea in what was a very exciting and skillful match. The Éire Óg team followed directly afterwards also against Roscrea in Roscrea however, the result didn't go Nenagh's way on this occasion despite it being a hugely competitive game. The third team - Nenagh Navy played Kilruane in Cloughjordan on Sunday evening.
No Under 11 mid week training this week due to the majority of children already attending Cúl camp for the week.
Next weekend all three teams will be out in round two matches against Kilruane and Portroe. Keep an eye on the WhatsApp group for further details. New players are always welcome for either code. Great to see new faces joining over the last few weeks and we look forward to seeing more new boys.
