THIS IS HOW IT WILL WORK:- All players are being supplied with bags at training & mentors are currently distributing plastic bags, but ordinary black refuse sacks will do. The bags can be dropped off at the front of the GAA Complex over the next few weeks. After July 1st a bin will be placed in the car park for these items.
