Kelloggs GAA Cúl Camp:

The Cúl camp  took place last week with 51 boys and girls taking part. It was a fun filled week with the boys and girls practising their hand passing, soloing, point taking, kicking, catching, working as a team and all the skills that are needed when playing Gaelic football. They all got to meet Limerick stars Brian Scanlon, Eoghan O’ Connor and Seamus O’ Carroll who were busy signing their jerseys and answering all the questions the boys and girls had for them. This was a great week for all the children who took part and they all enjoyed themselves immensely.
