FIVE WAYS TO WELLBEING

Well done and thank you to our Health and Wellbeing Committee Elaine, Michael, Dee, Emer, Dermot( Health and Wellbeing Officer) & David for a relaxed and well presented workshop this evening. Plenty of food for thought for ways to take time for ourselves in our busy lives.

CLUBPERSON OF THE YEAR 2018

Congratulations to clubman Noel McCormack who we were delighted to put forward as “Glynn Barntown Clubperson of the Year 2018” at the recent district awards. This tribute was in recognition of his hard work and dedication over a long number of years with adult and underage squads aswell as years at the helm of the club’s u6 hurling, football and camogie academy. His contribution to the development of club teams has been matched by his work off the field on various committees and in fundraising events. Noel is pictured receiving his award from Tossy Ryan.

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY

This piece was recently printed on “GAA Then and Now” and a follower sent it on to us.. It relates the epic Wexford football championship of 1889 where Barntown and Glynn-as we were then known-played a role in an unusual culmination to the championship-  it’s sure to be of interest to anyone who enjoys a bit of club history.
