Táimid ar ais - We're back!

An Naíolann - Nursery returns Saturday 29th

An Naíolann, the Clontarf GAA nursery sponsored by Dublin Orthodontics returns to St.Pauls College, Sybil Hill on Saturday August 29th starting from 9.30am. This year we will be welcoming buachaillí agus cailíní born in 2011 to our Cubs section. If you have friends with children in that age group please pass this newsletter onto them.
Our Philosophy is: “Fun, participation and skill acquisition at a pace that suits the individual child”.
There are over 450 children in attendance every Saturday morning. Most of the local children will be familiar with Stephen Behan, our Games Promotion Officer as he coaches in all the local schools. Please feel free to contact him with any questions you may have.
