GCH is a great club. I believe in our club, the athletes, volunteers, parents are all amazing. However sometimes at senior level we don’t show this as a club at elite level competition, we always have some great individual performances but rarely as a team. This is beginning to change, we’re showing it in Cross country and now we’re showing it in track & field.

And Gottarun in Oranmore kindly donated a pair of runners for Bernie.

Over the past several months the GCH Development Committee and Juvenile Committee have been reviewing how we collect and manage membership and participation fees at GCH. At the moment all our track fees and most of our membership fees are in cash. The club is of a scale where this requires heroic effort on the part of a few volunteers to collect, count and lodge. Finding €2 for track every time can be pretty inconvenient for participants too. So in 2016 we're moving to a new membership and fees arrangement across all membership groups.
