Registration/Membership List will be used when communicating via Email, WhatsApp and Text Message. Please register asap to ensure that you continue to receive all information regarding training and matches.


Please support all our teams as they compete in their various fixtures – it’s so important to all the players to see lots of support and encouragement on the side-lines – no matter what their age :-)!!  – It really does make a difference.

Especially the home games – what better way to pass an evening or morning – stroll up to the pitch, bring the kids and enjoy the fresh air while supporting your club.

Serious Support for all our players – don’t forget the club colours :-)

A Little Note:-

As we progress on through the season now – there will be more Fixtures, more Match reports to enjoy, Club news regarding upcoming events and fundraisers and any other relevant information.  As always, any and all suggestions re the Update are gladly welcome – fresh ideas are most welcome on how we can improve, change it round etc.  So please don’t be shy – let us know any ideas etc.  

Best of luck to all our players as they take to the field for Season 2019 to represent their Club and in some cases their County.

Thank you as always to our amazing group of Coaches and Mentors without whom ……well let’s not even go there and think of that terrible scenario.   Your continuous selfless dedication and commitment on a voluntary basis is, in a word inspiring, thank you all so much.

To all our wonderful and remarkable officers and committee members throughout the entire club – who work tirelessly, mostly behind the scenes, planning and organising, shaping the future of the club – striving to always improve, always be better, pushing the club to be the very best that it can possibly be.   Countless hours spent at meetings and organising events etc., again all voluntary – Roscommon Gaels will be forever in your debt as you all carry on the fantastic work of committees that went before you. 




Sin é – till next week again
