I want to welcome all our participating clubs in todays event and especially those who have travelled from neighbouring counties and I know the tournament will be enjoyed by all involved and especially the young under 11 players who will get a chance to play against teams that they would not normally come up against.
The involvement of clubs from different counties is a really important aspect of today and it introduces these young players to the bigger GAA family. I want to thank the mentors and the families of those players for making the effort to travel to Dublin on Easter Saturday.
I want to thank in particular our own club members who are running todays event. Like all clubs participating today, we too are very fortunate in having really dedicated mentors who not just look after their team but who drive ambition within the club. For many of the non Dublin teams at todays event the name Geraldines P Moran GAA club will be unfamiliar. What will surprise many of you is the fact that we are one of the oldest clubs in the GAA having been founded back in 1886. We have a long tradition of involvement in GAA activities in Dublin and we are now very active at both adult and juvenile where we have both hurling and football and we cater for boys and girls.
In welcoming you all to our club, I want all those involved to enjoy the day and the good weather and we hope to welcome you back again next year as this tournament becomes a fixed part of the inter-club calendar.
