In light of the current COVID-19 restrictions, the upcoming LGFA Data Protection Workshops which were due to take place as face to face workshops must be cancelled, however we are delighted to announce that the LGFA will run a number of webinars for our officers to get upskilled in our Essential Guide to GDPR workshop.
The workshop, which is normally 2 ½ hours in duration will now be delivered in one 90 minute webinar and will be delivered by our GDPR Consultant, Darragh Cunningham from GDPR for Sport.
There are limited places available on the webinar system but we will continue to run the webinars based on demand for the workshop within each area so everyone will be accommodated but we do recommend booking early and it will be first come first served. As places are limited I would also ask people to please only sign up if you are actually available and intend joining the webinar.
The down time on activities, provides an excellent opportunity for all clubs to gain this essential training and ensure your club is compliant with the legislation.
The next webinar is aimed at Ulster based clubs and will take place on Monday 6th April at 7.15 p.m.
PLEASE NOTE: You will receive a more detailed email with how to log onto the webinar, which requires you setting up as a user on the GAA E-Learning Portal – please read the User Guide in full as it also contains the Enrolment Key which you will need on the evening of the webinar.
We thank you for your co-operation and working with us on this new training initiative.

Thoughts & Prayers 
Sean Ruddy (R.I.P.)
An Charraig CLG
Piarsaigh an Ghallbhaile CLG deeply regret the death of Sean Ruddy who for many years was the very welcoming face of our neighbouring club, always willing to help and always eager to chat about any matter touching on our National games and pastimes.  Sean was one of those unique Gaels, totally committed to his own club but always happy to see neighbouring clubs thriving whether on the playing fields or developing their own facilities.  A familiar face at club and county games over the years we have our own particular recent happy memories of Sean as he made sure to take time out after his own club’s Junior Championship win in Omagh last year to warmly congratulate us on ending our 61 year wait for a championship success.  Although quiet in his demeanour Sean’s words were warmly meant, deeply felt and very much appreciated by us all.  We extend our deepest sympathies to Sean’s family and friends at this particularly sad and difficult time.  His loss to our fellow Gaels at an Charraig CLG will be immeasurable having volunteered to serve his club nobly in every role possible, from committed player through all the officer roles to a very fair and able referee.  Although present circumstances prevent us for attending in person please be assured of all our thoughts and prayers.  The GAA world is all the poorer from his passing but much the better for him having passed our way. 
Mary Queen of the Gael pray for Him.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
The club would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to any families in the area who are dealing with bereavement or illness in their family at this time.
