Club Beag is an initiative to introduce boys aged between approximately 3-4 years of age to hurling/football in an informal and fun way. It encourages both children and adults to meet, make new friends, whilst enjoying sport in a safe & friendly environment. Club Beag was set up in Blarney GAA Club in 2012 and is becoming increasingly popular. If you are new to the community or not too familiar with GAA, it is a great way to get an insight into our club, become familiar with our facilities, while meeting other parents in a social/enjoyable environment. The club runs 30-minute sessions once a month on the second Saturday of each month from April – June (July for holidays) and August – October. The sessions take place in Blarney GAA grounds. It is free to join Club Beag! Blarney GAA is now welcoming new young members into Club Beag for 2015. Club Beag’s first session for 2015 will take place on Saturday 18th April (11.30am – 12noon). We would be delighted to welcome new members to Club Beag for the coming year. For further queries, please contact Club Beag’s Chairperson Mairead Sheehan on 087 4170690.

Blarney GAA have organised a third party company to come to our clubhouse on Saturday the 18th of April next to run a cardiac screening programme which is available to everyone within the community. The screening will cost €45 which will be payable on the day, as there is limited places please book well before the 18th of April. The screening is available to EVERYONE, not just members of the club. PLEASE NOTE THAT PARTICIPANTS MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER The medical involves a review by a nurse who has extensive health screening experience. The participant completes an extensive questionnaire which is reviewed by the nurse and the following tests are carried out: – Blood pressure (in both arms) – Height, weight and body mass index (BMI) – 12 lead resting ECG Once the tests have been completed they will be reviewed by their Cardiologist and you will then be sent a full report on the results of your heart screening. The report will also advise you on any further action that may need to be taken. The company can also assist you with further specialist referral and have a network of cardiologists they recommend and refer you to. Register today online as spaces are limited.
