Summer Community Games

August 1, 2017 at 10:47 am

A Chairde,

We are delighted to announce that as part of the Outer North summer scheme 2017 we will be teaming up with The Greater Shantallow Area Partnership and County Derry GAA to introduce a series of summer community games. With the support of local youth organisations Off the Streets, Leafair Community Association and Shantallow Community Residents coaches from the County Team and we will be helping to deliver Gaelic games and multisport sessions within the heart of local areas for local children and young people.

The neighbourhood has been broken into 5 zones and there will be a 2-hour workshop delivered in each area with all participants then being invited to take part in a community festival at our club grounds on Saturday 12th August between 12-3pm where we will have community games, bouncy castles, face painting and BBQ for the whole family and transport provided to bring kids to the event.

At each session, there will be a County Derry Gaelic and as well as our own coaches. They will be on site with goals, bibs and footballs, delivering a highly fun and inclusive Gaelic games session for boys and girls. This will teach them the basics of the sport enabling them to learn new skills and play in small sided games. This will be open for boys and girls aged 6-14 years.

If you are interested in taking part then all you must do is show up on the day at your venue of choice. Boys and girls from both primary and secondary school are all welcome and we encourage young people to create a team from their area to take part. Volunteers from the local community will also be on hand to help coordinate and supervise the activities.

This event is open to all and is FREE of charge.

Séamus de Faoite cúrsa.

June 23, 2017 at 12:57 pm

A Chairde Gael,

Is mór an chúis áthais dom, mar Uachtarán Chomhairle Uladh CLG, céad míle fáilte a chuir roimh
achan duine atá ag freastal ar an chúrsa i mbliana. Tá bród orm a bheith ábalta a rá go bhfuil Comhairle
Uladh CLG ag tabhairt tacaíochta iomlán ag gach leibhéal d’ár dTeanga Náisiúnta.

On behalf of the Ulster Council it’s my pleasure to welcome you all to the 29th consecutive Irish
Language course in the tranquil setting at Downings amongst the beautiful hills of Donegal.

The week following the Ulster Football Final provides an opportunity for much enjoyment from the
relaxed atmosphere at this well organised week of cultural activities. This is the traditional date where
many congregate with a mutual love of the Irish Language, song and dance.

Whilst the main activity is the learning or improvement of spoken Irish; it is the choice of the
individual what class or activity they attend. Should you be a beginner or a fluent speaker your needs
will be accommodated.

I trust you will have a pleasant experience and I look forward to meeting you at some of the events at
the Cursa de Faoite 2017 V8

Tá súil agam go mbainfidh sibh sult agus taitneamh as an tseachtain.
Is mise le meas
Micheál Ó hOsain
Uachtarán Chomhairle Uladh CLG

Urgent Capital Development Required.

June 9, 2017 at 10:48 am

A Chairde.

The great news is the club goes from strength to strength . You have only to look at the demand for parking to see the numbers playing gaelic football at Brian Og’s.

To allow us facilitate our planned expansion we urgently need more parking and we intend to develop the space beside our current car park over the summer.

This will keep cars off the road , protect the safety of our kids and allow us to continue to be good neighbours to our community using the public road outside our gate.

This comes at a financial price.

We have launched a buy a brick name a brick for our capital development fund which will pay for the car park firstly and then other capital developments like our new gym and kit storage lockers.

Can I encourage every family to buy a brick which will see your family name permanently on a list of our benefactors displayed on a wall in the new build .

Family bricks are 20 pounds and it would be fantastic if you can encourage a business to get named on the business wall for 100 pounds.

Beir bua.

CLG Bhrian Óig Bhaile Stil Football Development Action plan

March 6, 2017 at 11:14 am

CLG Bhrian Óig Bhaile Stil launched its first ever Football Development Action plan this week. The Action Plan which has taken three months to compile highlights the need for the club to try to match its off field facilities development, with an on field football plan that will hopefully result in the club getting back into division one in the near future.

The Action Plan was launched in the Steelstown clubhouse and was drawn up using the input of fifteen different coaches who represent all teams within the club from the U6s to senior.

The Development Plan was created as a result of the club taking part in a series of club structure workshops organised through the Ulster GAA.

Lizzie Keys a Curriculum Support coach from Ulster GAA led the workshops which looked at the current position of the club and helped the coaches identify target areas for club development.

Club Chairman Michael Heffernan said ‘It gives me great pleasure to welcome CLG Bhrian Og Bhaile Stil Club Football Development Action Plan. This document sets out what club members including Boys, Girls, Adult Men and Adult Ladies football deem to be the critical projects for completion between now and 2019. These selected projects build on the work of club members and officers who have worked tirelessly down through the years to promote the ideals of the Gaelic Athletic Association within our club & parishes. With the ideas generated at the initial brainstorming session, coupled with the hours invested in various focus groups and the diligent work of our Football Development Committee, I believe we now have a blueprint that offers an opportunity for real progress for the future. However, in many ways the real work begins now. Meeting the ambitious goals set out in this document will need the input and assistance of a large number of people and requires all club members to put their proverbial shoulders to the wheel and actively seek out ways to make a positive contribution. Indeed, one of our key priorities is to attract new members and retain current members, and I hope that those reading this, not currently involved in the club, will see within these pages, signs of a vibrant, forward thinking and inclusive organisation. It is critically important that we grasp with both hands the opportunities that this plan provides, and ensure that Steelstown Brian Og’s GAA Club continues to effectively serve our members, supporters and the community that sustains us.

 

James McGurk the Coaching Officer at Steelstown was involved right throughout the process and is very appreciative of the input and support that came from a large number of people at the club, namely the coaches and the club executive.

McGurk stated that the process from start to finish was ‘hard work’. ‘There has been a lot of man hours put into creating the Action Plan and at times we had to remind ourselves why we were doing it, but hopefully it will not be in vain. There are a lot of things you would like to do to improve things at the club, but wish lists are easily drawn up, and selecting target areas for development, and drawing up a means to achieve them is not so easy.’ Hopefully the future looks good for Steelstown Brian Og’s.
