This has been discussed and decided upon at Ard Chomhairle and remains the case and date for registrations to be received.
Leinster County Development Plans
Firstly Thank You to all who have sent myself and Leinster on their development funding applications. For those yet to do so, please ensure to get them into us and you can email or call if you need any help in completing it.
The unknown of the return to camogie activity does make it harder to plan but I assure you I will help you in adjusting/tweaking them to allow for development in some form in your county when we do return to the pitches.
Fixtures Contingency Planning
I have spoken to a number of you over the past few weeks following the Fixtures Planning meeting and I understand your concerns etc in the area. As we are following government guidelines it can be difficult to plan ahead but where possible have an idea of actions you can take to have as much opportunity to play as we hopefully can. Again, just drop me an email if you have any worries, questions or concerns.
Development Officer Speaker Session
I am hoping to have an online session with the County Development Officers in mid/late June where I'd like to have 3 speakers on 3 different areas of development which might be of interest to you. I'd envisage each speaker speaking for 15mins with 5mins question time each. Allowing a 1-hour session to run smoothly. If you have any preferred areas please just let me know. If any of you feel you have a project that you've completed and felt it was successful and wish to share, also please let me know.
A lot of info in one email, but just want to check in every so often, without bombarding you with various emails.
Anyone needs anything, please feel free to give a shout. I am taking annual leave for the next week or so, as instructed, but I will be back to you as soon as possible.
