With the programme of activities on offer at Dunavil ever changing over the next few weeks, please ensure that there is an activity for your child(ren) taking place before dropping them off at the club. Parents have a very important role to play. We would encourage parents to participate in club activities while their children are playing our games. This will encourage them to keep coming back. Volunteering in the club does not stop with coaching, there are many other areas that may be of interest and training is always available.
The first Down GAA Draw took place at the weekend with Pat Rodgers a £200 winner.
