Kilkenny GAA recently ran a ‘Favoutite Moment’ series on their website and asked local GAA supporters to write about ‘What my Club means to me’. Here is a lovely article written by a Graigue Ballycallan Club supporter and appears on Kilkenny GAA website. http://www.kilkennygaa.ie/news/read/id/2883

We are in unprecedented times, we need to follow the advice from our Public Health experts. Speak to your children, sit with them, look at, study, discuss and implement the HSE Guidelines on hand hygiene, cough etiquette, general hygiene and what to do it you have symptoms or have come in contact with someone who has the virus.
We all need to take responsibility and reduce our social contact, particularly with those who are most vulnerable. Together we will get through this.
