Cúl Maroon – Club Chairman Foreword

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On behalf of our club, I would like to welcome you and your child into the Bishopstown GAA family.

Over the coming years, we will nurture, support and challenge your child to become the best version of themselves, both in life and on the field of play.

This ambition may seem idealistic to some, but we are very clear in our minds as to the environment we want to create for our young members, which has little to do with winning but is more focused on individual and personal development.

It is centred around fun, enjoyment and making friends for life. It is an environment that has respect, teamwork and honesty as its core values. Promotion of these values will encourage participation and the development of a positive experience within our club so as to sustain a lifelong involvement within Gaelic Games.

Our coaches are central to such promotion and we as a club are indebted to their work and their level of volunteerism. We are always looking for more coaches to join us and help out so it may interest you to come on board
with us.

Finally, my wish for your child is that sport in general, and the GAA in particular will provide them with an outlet that is framed in positivity and is supportive of self-development.

I look forward to seeing them wear the maroon and white with pride and representing our values in all that they do.

Brian Cuthbert 

Chairman
