Underage Parents Open Night with guest speaker Colm O’Rourke
Tullamore GAA Club would like to thank all who attended our underage parents open night on Monday week last. It was a very successful evening with guest speaker, former Meath Footballer and RTE GAA sports analyst Colm O’Rourke. Colm gave a talk on the role sport plays for children through to their adulthood, the importance of team participation and improving their self esteem. Thanks to Colm for his very valuable words and for making the trip to Tullamore last Monday evening. Thanks also to John Leahy who spoke on the night also. We also express our gratitude to the Court Hotel for all their help on the night and to all who worked behind the scenes from our underage committee to make this night a success.
