Mental Health 

Thanks to the club members who attended the talk last week in the Hotel Kilmore on Mental Health and Wellness by Dr Claire Hayes. This was a very informative talk which, among other topics, discussed how players react to victory and defeat,  how alcohol so often features after victory and defeat and how important it is to have an equilibrium and see the bigger picture as we react to everything that life throws at us.   

The HSE has launched a new mental health initiative called Little Things. It has a five point plan for good mental health which includes advice on keeping active, talking about your problems, looking out for others and drinking less alcohol. Alan O Mara, Cavan GAA player, has urged people to get involved with this initiative. On the same subject the GAA has developed a pack called Play in my Boots in partnership with St Patrick’s Mental Health Foundation which is aimed at all who play sport. This pack can be downloaded from the website gaa.ie  People are reminded that there are many resources available dealing with mental health. Use them if you feel the need to. Help is always available. Let’s take the stigma out of the subject of mental health. It’s ok to say you‘re not ok.

Santa Claus 

Santa Claus duly arrived by helicopter in Terry Coyle Park on Saturday morning last There was a palpable air of expectation on the faces of the young children as they scanned the skies for a glimpse of Santa’s helicopter.  A large crowd of parents and children turned out to meet Santa who was appearing in Terry Coyle Park for the twelfth year. He patiently posed for a photograph as each child received his gift. Paul McKiernan as usual provided the music and successfully encouraged the boys and girls to sing the well-known Christmas songs. Adding to the occasion was the fact that the pilot of the helicopter was Robert Maloney-Derham, well-known Cavan Gaels and county footballer!! Thanks to all who prepared the clubhouse for the occasion. A particular thanks to our hard-working ladies’ committee for their hard work on the day.

Market Square Capers

Also present was a life size Santa. Many had their photograph taken beside the cut out figures. Edel O Riordan was in charge of the face painting. Well done to John Smith for organising the wooden Frozen poster, to Mark Loughnane who provided the PA and to Cavan Gaels player Declan Meehan who was DJ for the occasion.
