Can I volunteer to help?
Absolutely! Nursery could not function without the involvement of parent/guardian
volunteers. There are a number of roles to suit a wide range of people, ranging from helping out with timekeeping to coaching. The commitment is only from week to week, as you are available. No previous experience in either coaching or Gaelic Games is needed, as full training is provided by the club. If you are in a position to volunteer in any capacity, please contact the lead mentor for your group, once you are added to the relevant WhatsApp group. Please don’t wait to be asked – more volunteers are always welcome!
