Memories of my GAA club: Come on Ahane the spuds are boilin

It was 1987 when I played my first game of hurling in Mackey Park, Ahane; the day before I made my First Communion at Lisnagry N.S. The next day I bought my first helmet from the proceeds. Ahane GAA club is based in the beautiful parish of Ahane Castleconnell, nestled in the very northeast of Limerick by the river Shannon.

Why small-sided games work!

A recent national study; the Children’s Sport Participation and Physical Activity study (CSPPA), concluded that much more work had to be done to ensure that all children participated in the recommended amount of physical exercise and a significant increase in participation levels of all children and youth in sport and physical activity in Ireland is warranted (Woods et al. 2010).
