Zoom Calls
A big thank to Gavin for doing these with the necessary groups. I know from the U9 girls, they had a great time doing the quiz last Thursday, but can I recommend easier questions next time, even I struggled with some of them ? ?.

Ladies team: Are starting pre-season training with online zoom classes and remote fitness challenges. Anyone wishing to join the team please contact Gaye @ 0871241409.

Covid Update
We would like to remind everyone in our community that we at Stars of Erin have a list of volunteers ready to support you during these difficult times. We are all aware of elderly and vulnerable people in our community that need our help at this time. We may know people working in frontline services that will need extra support at this time or people that are self isolating. We are calling on all members to connect with their neighbours if you haven’t already and if you can offer any kind of assistance that may help, please do so. If anyone needs anything that we might be able to help with please contact us and we will do our best to help in any way possible. Email Secretary.starsoferin.dublin@gaa.ie or call us on 087 1241409. Meanwhile – we ask all our members to please continue to observe Government guidelines and stay at home unless you need to go for essentials and exercise within your 5km.

From all at Stars, keep safe and healthy.
