Cluain Tarbh has a unique, innovative and indeed pioneering nursery which dates back to 1978. Carefully introducing boys and girls to the world of Gaelic Games, the “action” takes place every Saturday morning, with presently over 400 children taking part each week.
The secret to the success of the nursery lies in the “small group syndrome” - where children enjoy coaching with a small group of pals. The emphasis is always on fun and involvement and then the skills.The club has been blessed with the many parents who come on board each year to help out and subsequently swell the number of mentors up through the ranks.
Children from 4 years old are welcome to join any Saturday morning.
Each season ends with a mini league series of hurling and football matches, culminating in a colourful finals days which has developed into one of Clontarf’s truly community events.
The beginners Nursery (Cubs) is held from 9:30-10:30am every Saturday morning at our Astro to the rear of our clubhouse Áras Chluain Tarbh between the Belgrove Girls and Boys schools. The Nursery season runs in conjunction with the school calendar year. For further information, contact Lead mentor Matt O'Neill (086-1527725).
Juvenile Membership Application forms can be downloaded from our 'Documents' section and returned to one of the lead mentors.
Parents are encouraged to get involved, 'many hands make light work', and we are always happy to get new mentors onboard.
