Club News April 2019

Online Registration:

***Early Registration****

Starting in 2019, Claregalway GAA are running an ‘early membership’ promotion.

All Juvenile members, boys and girls U-16 & younger, will receive a free training top once their membership is completed before May 1st, 2019. The Ladies and Juvenile committees are responsible for the administration of the scheme within their clubs. It is intended that players will receive a Training Top voucher from Team Managers, once membership payment has been confirmed. The player can then collect their top from the Clubhouse on Saturday afternoon (girls) and Sunday morning (boys and girls) or at another pre-arranged time.

If you have already registered – thank you. The club will be in contact in due course in relation to the above.

Please note it is the intention of the club that everyone has a chance to play football. Special circumstances can be accommodated. Please see more info in the “Register Here” link below.
