THREE-TIME All-Ireland winner Ciarán Kilkenny took time out from his training for Dublin’s All-Ireland adventure to meet children taking part in the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp in Erin’s Isle GAA Club, Finglas.

This year, the GAA donated 513 free places to local Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps worth over €30,000 to children in School Completion Programmes and 18 kids from Finglas took part in the Erin’s Isle camp.

The School Completion Programme aims to increase the number of children who remain in primary and second-level schools.

And the Kellogg's GAA Cúl Camps provide them with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holiday.

Charles Harrison, National Cúl Camp Coordinator, GAA said the GAA was committed to ensuring that as many young people as possible derive the health benefits which accrue from getting 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity per day.

“As an all-inclusive sporting body, we in the GAA want to ensure that children at risk of or experiencing educational disadvantage in the community experience the joys of Gaelic Games,” he added.

“We are delighted to be able to provide these places to School Completion Programmes across Ireland.

“We have been working successfully with Tusla for the last three years and we hope this relationship can continue to blossom.”

All the coaches and kids at Erin’s Isle will be backing the Dubs this Sunday.
