Club News Update:
Important Messages from our Underage Chairperson – Ger Webb – Please read:
Dear Friends and Members,
You may be aware that we are holding our Annual Golf Classic on Friday, May 24th at Kinsale Golf Club. All monies raised will be directed towards the underage section of the club (Girls & Boys) - which is where the majority of our members and volunteers dedicate their time ; to the youth and future of Kinsale GAA.
This is an appeal to everyone to strongly encourage any businesses/companies you are involved with to please sponsor a Tee Box for €50. Or indeed to enter a team on the day. Fundraisers are crucial to the future development and indeed the current maintenance and running of our club – along with Grants that can be applied for, they are one of our biggest opportunities to raise much needed income for the club.
This GAA club cannot fulfill it’s potential without EVERYONE getting behind it. The GAA Club is open to everyone in the community and also to develop and enhance your childrens lives through sport.
Now is the time to show your conviction and commitment by pledging financial support for our Golf Classic Fundraiser please.

Child Safeguarding Course being run by Camogie Association:
Hi to everybody,
The next Child Safeguarding Information Seminar takes place on 18 May 2019 in Croke Park from 10.30 am to 4.30pm and in line with previous seminars we have a varied list of topics that we people have asked us to develop and discuss along with updates on current safeguarding matters.
Amongst some of the topics agreed for discussion at the Seminar are:
• Suicide Awareness- Information on suicide awareness and prevention training, plus local resources and a discussion on introducing a training programme for Gaelic Games personnel will all be covered.
• New Child Safeguarding Statement 2019 - following consultations with the Child Safeguarding Statement Compliance Unit the new updated joint Child Safeguarding Statement 2019-2021 will be launched at our seminar. This new statement, and an accompanying risk assessment document, will be issued in template format which will allow for the individual requirements of each club and county and will act as a guidance for all clubs in agreeing their own final statements
• Restorative Practice - Clubs and County Boards alike have all experienced the frustrations of taking disciplinary actions and the subsequent fall out that may occur at times in the Club/County. Restorative Practice offers an alternative dispute resolution intervention that has proven to be most successful on many occasions and will discuss findings and outcomes in relation to the benefits of using restorative practice when working with children and young people in our Associations
• Social Media Policy and Guidelines -The recently launched GAA Social Media Policy and Guidelines contain updated guidance and vital information on implementing best practice in the use of social media in our Associations.
The seminar will also enable us update you on the progress we have made on our on-line child safeguarding training programme, developments with the Gender Diversity working group, clarification on the future delivery of the Gaelic Games Child Safeguarding Training Workshops by our own Tutors in 2019 and information on a proposed Sport Ireland audit of Clubs in 2019.
As previously advertised we are inviting the County Children's Officers from each of our Gaelic Games Associations and our Safeguarding Tutors to this seminar. Please make every effort to attend . Next week we will issue you with an email in order to reserve your booking for the seminar.
