REGISTRATION is now open for Rebel Óg’s latest hurling webinars.

The workshops start tonight with ‘The Goalie — No. 1 on Every Team’. This is a must for all hurling coaches and is recommended for current and prospective goalkeepers. 

When registering, please double-check the email address you enter. If you submit an incorrect address, they have no way to send you the link to the event.

This will be followed next Monday, May 25, by a webinar on ‘Slaughtneil GAA – An Insight’, by Roibeard Eiméid, Sleacht Néill. 

This is a webinar with a little difference. It will include a ‘round table’ discussion with some of the people at the coalface of this small club’s huge impact on Gaelic games in recent years. The discussion will strive to portray that in sporting terms. The lesson is that small clubs can dream big.

Guests will include Michael McShane, hurling manager; Dominic McKinley, camogie manager; Aoife Ní Chaiside, camogie player; and Brendan Rogers, hurling and football player.

There will also be an invited ‘guest audience’ — their identities to be revealed only during the event — who will try to gain an insight into the magic formula that this great club has discovered.

Each webinar requires a separate and distinct log-in. Attendees need to complete a registration form for each event and subsequently receive a log-in link.

Meanwhile, Bishopstown GAA Club will run the equivalent of the distance from Malin to Mizen Head, in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. The fundraiser was inspired by club member Kevin O’Driscoll.

A spokesperson for the club said: 

“In the absence of organised training, one of our senior footballers, Noel O’Donovan, came up with the idea of harnessing the individual training efforts of the players to complete a virtual run for charity. Due to the respiratory nature of the Covid-19 virus and the awareness in the club of Kevin’s battle with CF, the organising committee picked CF as their chosen charity for the fun run.” 

You can donate to the fundraiser through any of their Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook pages, or at:
