Shamrock Gaels is delighted to announce that our grounds are now Smoke Free. The club was selected to be part of this great initiative as part of the GAA’s Healthy Clubs initiative sponsored by Irish Life and the Tomar Trust. The club have adapted a new smoke free policy and erected smoke free signage throughout Shamrock Gaels Park. In conjunction with the launch of the policy, the club used the opportunity to raise awareness on the dangers of smoking with the local national schools by running a poster competition which was won by Penny Barlow from Taunagh N.S.
