Volunteers Required

With all the news in the papers and on the web over the last few days about payments to managers etc. it's easy to forget that that the GAA at grassroots is an entirely volunteer organisation. Volunteers are the life and soul of every GAA club, and Moneygall is no different. The club operates on the basis of voluntary effort. We rely on parents and adult members to:
  • organise, supervise, coach and provide transport to teams.
  • fund raise.
  • assist with the running and maintenance of the club and it's facilities.
  • participate on management committees.
  • clean jerseys and kit.

Some of the ways in which you can help Moneygall GAA are:

Coaching and Supervising Teams

Please note no hurling/football or GAA experience is needed to get involved with juvenile teams. Some of the best mentors in the club have no GAA background. Also, it is not a full time commitment, drop in and out depending on when you have time available. As little as one hour a week is all that is required to help the club. All coaches have the opportunity to complete a coaching course, either foundation or level one.
  • Would you mentor / coach your child's team?
  • Would you occasionally assist mentors at training/matches?
  • Would you help with team admin – teamsheets, texts, etc.
  • Can you help in organising team events, parties, blitzs etc.
  • Can you help with First Aid on your child's team.
If you have knowledge/expertise in any of the areas below and would take an occasional phone call to provide advice, or if you can volunteer some time to help out, please contact any of the committee or mentors or use the Contact Us page to leave your details.
