The club wishes to extend its thanks to SuperValu Ireland (Bernies Supervalu Roscrea and Buckleys Supervalu Birr) for the large donation of Footballs we have received from their Behind the Ball campaign.
The aim of this campaign was to get children in the local areas active and engaging in team sports.
These balls will be used in Coolderry Central School, Dromakeenan Primary School and in club with our underage teams.
4th March saw 53 people complete a 5k at the end of their Operation Transformation campaign. It was a pretty miserable day with plenty of rain and very cold but that didn’t stop them making a fantastic effort. Well done everyone. Everyone is a winner but you can check out the results by clicking this link COT 5k Results 2017
Saturday 4th March is the date – mark it in your diary. This is the date that all our brilliant participants in our Operation Transformation (over 60 people every night for the past 5 weeks) campaign will complete their 5k. We hope to have a special guest on the day also to mark the occasion.
Getting ready for the season ahead. Lots of coaches setting out their plans and looking forward to kicking off. A new set of materials have been added to our Coaching Resources page. Let the games begin!

On the 23rd August the Under 8 Team from Coolderry got a fantastic opportunity to play in Croke Park as part of the Leinster GAA Go Games Blitz. A team of 12 players travelled to the GAA HQ and played St Annes from Wexford in a great game. The players of the future got to visit the dressing room, play on the famous pitch, lift the a cup in the Hogan Stand, take a tour of the stadium and visit the museum. The players did the Club proud and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thanks to Mary, Lisa, Michael, Emmett and parents for the assistance with the players on the day and well done to all the players for their great display.
Photos from the day are available at the Club Facebook page
