That’s a wrap for the Ballyboughal Cúl Camp! We had everything from intense heat to torrential rain to thunder and lightning but our fantastic coaches kept the kids smiling from start to finish. Kevin Geoghegan kindly took pictures today and we’ll post those shortly. A few thanks u’s first though..To Fergal Arthurs for all his work in getting the rescue helicopter to land on the new pitch this morning. What a treat!! To Caroline for setting up the WhatsApp group, admin and loads of other stuff, Michelle and Ian for sorting groups, goody bags, awards and more. Kate for being both a coach and a barista, Kevin on photos, Alan Matthews ‘Maor Uisce’, Keoghs for their kind support as ever, Jill and Dave for the Nursery Camp and all of our senior and junior coaches; amazing work.Our Cúl Camp coordinator was of course Matthew ‘the marshmallow’ Farrell who did such a fantastic job constantly engaging with all the children and coaches. His energy and enthusiasm throughout the week kept everyone’s spirits up, even in 31°! Thanks to Sally for passing on her wisdom!And of course to the 210+ children from Ballyboughal, Garristown, Naul, Rolestown and beyond who made this our biggest and best camp yet!
