RGAA @ GAMES DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE

Our Games Development Officer, Owen Mooney was in attendance at the GAA Games Development Conference, which took place last weekend in GAA HQ, Croke Park, Dublin. The two days were packed with outstanding presentations from internationally renowned coaches and researchers. It was hugely beneficial weekend for Owen personally but also Rockland GAA as a club as we feel it is so important to keep trying to improve. There was plenty of learning to take back to Rockland GAA and having the pleasure of listening to John McGrath, Dr. Michael Whelan, Prof Anthony McDonnell, Pat Daly, Philip Kerr, Stuart Lancaster and Paul McGinley was fantastic. The weekend was also a massive opportunity to network and great to catch up again with top class people. We're hoping that we'll have a small Rockland GAA delegation at next year's Conference.

SCOR ON BROADWAY

The second GAA NY SCÓR Champions Spectacular night on Broadway will take place on Broadway’s Stage on Friday January 19th 2018 as part of Origin’s 1st Irish Theatre Festival 2018. 
After a historical night on Broadway last year where 70 NYC GAA Club members performed their winning Scór Acts on a Broadway Stage to a packed audience made up of over 15 NYC based Clubs, GAA members, parents and children.
It is NYC GAA Scór and Origin Theatre Company's wish and hope to continue and make this an annual event to celebrate NYC GAA Scór Champions on a Broadway Stage. This cannot be done without the support of the entire GAA Community here in New York. To do this we depend heavily on the help of every single club in the area to support by attending Scór on Broadway. It’s a very family friendly evening of Club Pride, Irish Culture and Traditional entertainment

RGAA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Our club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Sunday January 28th 2018 beginning at 3pm at our Clubhouse.

We are very fortunate in the position we find ourselves with our success both on and off the field for everyone to "Play & Stay" with Rockland GAA. Therefore, we welcome new faces and volunteers to come find out more about how our club is run and what we have planned for 2018 and beyond. We are very excited to be launching the "RGAA Coaching & Games Development Plan 2018-2023" at this year's AGM.

Our club exists to promote Gaelic Games and Irish Culture. In order to do this and provide opportunities for our players to take part in Gaelic Football, Ladies Football, Camogie and Hurling, we require the continued support of our members, volunteers, supporters and community.

We are asking EVERYONE to come to our AGM. By being there, you are showing your support for our club. Attending does not mean you will have to join a committee or take on any role. There is no pressure and your attendance would be greatly appreciated by the Rockland GAA.

We hope that you will join us on Sunday, January 28th.

NEW YORK LGFA JUNIOR CHAMPIONS 2017

Congratulations to Pat McGovern and our newly crowned NY LGFA Junior Ladies Champions who defeated Manhattan Gaels in a wonderful game of Football. Both sides were deadlocked at 1-5 a piece at Half Time. Manhattan Gaels started the second half the better team scoring three unanswered points before the referee blew his whistle for a water break. This break was a blessing for our girls as it allowed them to settle down and refocus. After the water break our girls upped their intenstiy and desire to win a pulsating final on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-10. Thank you to Manhattan Gaels for one of the toughest games we've had all year
