Easter GAA Fun Camp

The Easter holidays are just around the corner with two weeks off school! There is no need to get bored as Buffers Alley has something special to offer to our young boys and girls. Our team of coaches are busy preparing for an action packed 3-day EASTER GAA CAMP at our club premises in Buffers Alley. The camp will run from Tuesday 23rd to Thursday 25th April (inclusive) from 10.30 to 2.30 daily. Don't worry if the sun doesn't shine, as we have a fantastic indoor arena to cater for large groups.

This is a great opportunity to come along to have fun, make friends and enjoy the many activities that these coaches have lined up for our young folk. The Chairman of Coiste na nÓg has informed us that he will bring along a couple of surprise well-known Wexford hurlers on the Wednesday to sign autographs, present goodies, etc. Participants must have celebrated their 7th birthday before the camp commences and be under 13. It is important that all boys and girls partaking are current members of the club. For further details, contact Robbie Kirwan on 087 6139349.
