Dear Naomh Bríd member,
As you know our juvenile members grow out of their Naomh Bríd gear very quickly, and we are well aware it’s expensive to buy new jerseys, shorts etc each year.
Rather than letting it take up space in your house, or disposing of perfectly good gear, the club would like to invite you to engage in a new ‘hand-me-down’ system in the club for any Naomh Bríd or GAA gear that your family no longer have use for.
To this end, we are approaching all parents and players to have a look in their wardrobes, attics, garages and elsewhere to see if there have any undamaged clothing or equipment they are happy to pass on to the club’s younger members.
The Club’s Kit Purchasing Committee (Muiris MacCarthaigh, Anthony Carleton, Frank MacElhatton) and Cultural Officer (Tracy Galvin) thought that the upcoming Lá na gClubanna (GAA Clubs Day) on May 8th would provide an ideal chance for parents of juvenile players to search for some Naomh Bríd or general GAA gear to take away on the day, for a small donation. This is also consistent with the club’s efforts to build shared community spirit amongst members and also encourage new members to join. We also hope to have some new Naomh Bríd branded gear on sale on the day.
Items we are keen for you to donate include:
 Jerseys
 Shorts
 Skorts
 Socks
 Outer-wear
 Hurls
 Helmets
 Sliotars
 Gloves
 Boots
 Bootbags

We will accept all undamaged (and preferably washed!) Naomh Bríd clothing and other GAA branded gear. But please note we do not want general sports equipment – so please hold onto your scuba or sky-diving equipment!
In advance of Lá na gClubanna, the two dates for collection of all the juvenile gear are during Fun Sundays at Harlequins (12 to 1pm) on April 17th and April 24th. There will be volunteers from Gaelic for Mothers and Others (G4MO) with large bags there on the day to gather up your hand-me-down gear.
All other teams are being asked to bring the gear to your training sessions to the lead coach by April 24th, so they can be passed on to Muiris, Anthony, Frank or Tracy and sorted for the Lá na gClubanna day, where you can come to the stand and view what is on display.
If none of the above suit, contact Muiris MacCarthaigh at
