A PROGRAMME of games for the youngest GAA players in Cork is being organised for September and October.

While the usual schedule of Monster Blitzes in large venues won't be going ahead, there will be games against neighbouring clubs for teams from U8 to U11.

Those will run for the six Saturdays from August 22 to September 26, alternating between hurling and football. There may also be additional games in October, depending on the circumstances as GAA reemerges from Covid-19 lockdown.

GDA Colm Crowley tweeted the initial details today.

The run of games will be particularly welcome as there are only nine clubs in Cork running Cúl Camps in 2020, a huge drop from the 122 that organised them last year. 

The requirements placed on club members to ensure safety for young players, as well as the limits on numbers attending, put the vast majority of Cork clubs off holding them this summer.

The nine Cork clubs listed on the Cúl Camp website are: 

Ballinora, Ballydesmond, Blarney, Brian Dillons, Iveleary, Kiskeam, Muintir Bhaire, Passage West, and St Michael’s.
