Club Boundaries

Replying To Pinewood:  "Hi,
This might be covered in a previous post, I just can't find it if it is. Is there somewhere one can check club boundaries? I've recently moved to just outside Gorey but not sure if I'm in the Naomh Éanna or Castletown catchment area.
My playing days are long past but I'd like to get my children involved in the sport but just not sure which club I should send them to.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks."
Honestly, send them where their friends/classmates are going is the safest bet, makes the kids lives that bit easier.

I'd agree with the last posters. Let the child play with the team he is happiest at. The gaa should be all about a sense of belonging and the child should play where they feel they belong.

If you ever want them to grow up winning AI medals, send them to school in Limerick. Hurling that is, not Gaelic football.

If they are only going to National school it's possible they might have to wait a long time by the time they are in their early 20s for Limerick to win another AI. The current team will all be in their 40s by then Mr Young!
