SKERRIES Harps Summer camps, sponsored by C&T Supermarkets, were a huge success again this year with almost 450 children participating in our four camps.
The final week, the Kelloggs Cúl Camp attracted almost 200 kids who participated in a week full of GAA fun activities.
Throughout the weeks, the club had special guests coming out to see the children answer their questions and sign autographs.
Dublin hurler Joey Boland was out during the hurling camp and was a big hit with the kids and gave them some good advice going forward.
During the Cúl Camp, Dublin camogie captain Gráinne Quinn and player Aine Fanning came out and talked to the girls and gave out wristbands which went down a treat.
To finish the week off, Dublin football corner back Johnny Cooper visited the club to present the end of camp prizes and medals to the children. He also spent an hour afterwards signing autographs and taking pictures with the children and families.
All in all, the camp was a big success and a big 'thank you' was extended to all who helped to run the camps, including Stephen Fitzgerald, Games Promotion Officer, Johnny Beggs, Avril and all the coaches who made it another successful GAA summer in Skerries.
