On behalf of the Chairman of An Cumann Uí Thuathail I would like to welcome
you all back to our club, and say how wonderful it is to see mentors,
players, and staff here again.

I thank everyone for the super response on membership/registration renewals
and encourage the last few to pay please. *Both memberships and juvenile
registrations are well overdue. O’Toole’s have a zero tolerance on unpaid
players. It is ‘NO PAY, NO PLAY’*

A great big ‘THANKS’ to all those that helped in the community during
lockdown. It was a stupendous gesture of neighbourly bonding and
appreciation of those in need.

‘Thanks’ doesn’t seem like a good enough word to describe the Herculean
fundraising efforts done by Mark Byrne for Eric (Eric’s Heroes)
magnificent, terrific is more in line with his accomplishments and the
Trojan endeavours of all those that took part. The great sense of pride
that rippled around the (virtual) club was astonishing.

*We send the absolute best wishes to all our teams getting back into
action. Play well and stay safe.*

First off the blocks are our new ladies team. Their first game is at home
this Friday evening v’s Ballymun Kickhams at 7:30pm

Our senior hurlers take on Clontarf in the Championship, this Saturday at
6:30pm in St Anne’s Park

Our minor footballers play their Championship game on Sunday at home v’s
Ballinteer St John’s at 11am

Congratulations to Christy and Teresa McCann who celebrated their 50th
wedding anniversary recently

*O’Toole’s lounge bar re-opening *

Subject to Government approval it is the club’s intention to reopen our bar

There will be a member of staff at the front desk to take temperature
checks, ensure hand sanitising guidelines are adhered to and to ensure all
entering the premises sign in and provide phone numbers for contact tracing

We will be operating table service only. There will be limited capacity in
the bar and members can book in advance should they wish by contacting Alan
