Under 6’s: Newport Juvenile GAA Club made a little piece of history last Friday evening at 6:30PM when our under 6’s became the first group in our club that had their first training session conducted on-line through Microsoft teams. On a glorious evening, 28 boys and girls and their parents took out their phones/iPads and together with their coach Mike Coffey began their journey with us. To mark the occasion a wonderful video compiled by Mike Coffey is available to view on our Facebook page.  The kids really enjoyed their first training session and are already looking forward to this week’s session. If your little boy or girl under 6 (starting school this coming Sept) would like to join us contact Mike Coffey Red 087 9055444 via text or WhatsApp.
