Glen Emmets Kellogg's Cúl Camp

The dates for the Kellogg's Cúil camps have just been announced and Tullyallen will again be hosting a week this summer. The Glen Emmets camp is on 15th July to 19th July this year. The children receive a jersey and training top and a backpack. The camps are structured so that a different aspect of the game is worked on each day, the programme involves coaching specific skills and is a great opportunity for the children to put into practice what they have learned through small sided games. During the camp week a 'blitz' is organized to provide each child with introduction to competitive games. If you are interested in your child attending go onto the website to try and secure your place this year. This camp is always fantastically ran and the cost is €60 for 1 child, €55 for the 2nd child, €45 for the 3rd and subsequent children. And if your child wants to attend another camp they can register for €45 without the gear that they get in their first camp.

Free CPR Training

If someone collapsed in front of you and was in cardiac arrest would you know what to do? Now is your chance to learn!  It's free and will only take 1 hour of your time. 1 hour of your day could add years to someone else's life!!! Duleek CFR group are holding a community training event on Sunday 26th May in Duleek Parish Centre, Eircode A92 R658. 

We will teach you how to perform hands only CPR on a person in cardiac arrest. Hands only CPR can double or even triple a person's chance of survival. 

Over 70% of cardiac arrests occur in the home so you are more likely to perform CPR on someone you know rather than on a complete stranger. We are holding hourly sessions starting between 9:45am-3:45pm. Advanced booking is essential & we advise you to book early as places are limited & will fill up fast. You can book your place by following the link & choosing which session you prefer- For further information you can send us a Facebook message or contact Pauline Durkin Coordinator Duleek CFR Group 087 6390495.  (Suitable for anyone of secondary school age & above to attend)
