Cul Camps are Launched Nation wide

Back and Cúler than ever, the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps programme for 2018 was launched today by author, model and mother of two, Pippa O’Connor and impressionist and GAA fan, Oliver Callan.

To celebrate the launch, Kellogg’s kicked off the campaign by opening Ireland’s first-ever pop-up cereal café. GAA All-Stars Andy Moran, Danny Sutcliffe, Rena Buckley and Niamh Hegarty helped serve-up breakfast to members of the public before taking part in a Q&A session with MC’s Pippa and Oliver, who left a lasting impression on proceedings.

A record-breaking 142,467 children took part in a Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp last year, an increase of 12 per cent on the previous year. One in every four children aged between six and 13 attended Ireland’s biggest summer camps for children in 2017 enjoying an action-packed week learning new skills, making friends and being active while having fun.

A Cúl Camp’s First

Kellogg’s transformed Dublin’s Urchin Restaurant on St Stephen’s Green into a pop-up cereal café as part of a colourful takeover to launch Kellogg’s GAA Cul Camps 2018. Members of the public were invited to drop by and take some time out for a nourishing breakfast, with the added treat of having their Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies served to them by the GAA All-Stars.

Guests could choose from a breakfast menu full of nutritious choices such as Kellogg’s cereals topped with berries, banana, nuts or natural yogurt, complemented by high-fibre, wholemeal bread, fruit and unsweetened juice to help kick-start their day.

A firm believer in the importance of a healthy lifestyle, Pippa O’Connor said: “Having two young sons has really made me focus on just how essential good nutrition and sports activities are for children.

“I believe in the benefits of starting each day with a balanced breakfast. It helps in getting my sons Louis and Ollie’s day off to a great start. Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps are a fantastic way for children to be active whilst having fun. That’s what childhood should ultimately be about.”

At the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps, children receive training in hurling, camogie, football and ladies football and some camps offer rounders and handball.  There are also camps as far spread as the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, the US, Canada and across Europe.

Taking place in July and August, the week-long Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps are priced at €60, dropping to €50 for a second child and just €40 for a third and any additional children. All participants receive a GAA zipped training top, jersey and backpack.

Meet the All-Stars

One camp in each province will receive a surprise visit from one of the four Kellogg’s Cúl Camps’ GAA ambassadors; Andy Moran (Mayo footballer), Danny Sutcliffe, (Dublin hurler), Rena Buckley (Cork Camogie player) or Niamh Hegarty (Donegal ladies footballer).

Ruth Hughes, head of Kellogg’s Ireland said: “Kellogg’s is committed to promoting and encouraging a healthy lifestyle and that is why we became involved with Cúl Camps seven years ago.  There will be tens of thousands of children getting active this summer at a Cúl Camp and a good breakfast is the best way to help them kick-start their day, whether on or off the pitch.”

GAA president, John Horan, who attended the launch pop-up cereal café said: “For families and communities all over Ireland, the summer simply wouldn’t be the same without Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps. Many children have benefited from the camps and this year’s recruits can expect to enjoy an action-packed week of fun and activity.  Like Kellogg’s, we want to help children to stay active across the summer and Cúl Camps are the perfect platform for Ireland’s youngsters to get out, get active and have fun.”

Everyone who registers for a Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp can enter a competition for a chance to win a €100 sports gear voucher every day. To enter, consumers must pick up a promotional pack of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes or Rice Krispies in stores from April (T&Cs apply)

Rebel Og Award for February goes to Scor All-Ireland winners

ALL-IRELAND Scór na nÓg winners, Maggie Moynihan (Cullen) and Carbery Rangers are the February winners of the Rebel Óg monthly awards, sponsored by the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs, Cummins Sports (award sponsors) with the Evening Echo and RedFM as media partners

– by Rory Noonan of Evening Echo.

Maggie is just 15 years old and started performing in public at the age of four when she entered the Feis in Cullen. She entered the amhránaíocht aonair in scór for the first time when she was nine.

Maggie reached the Munster final last year, but this year she reached the next step of the journey when she qualified for the All-Ireland final in Sligo, where she was chosen as the outright winner in Sligo on the night. She sang Cooraclare, which is a song which means a lot to her family and is always the first song to be sung at family parties. The last time an Ireland Scór title was brought to Cullen was 45 years ago by the late Con ‘Corney’ O’Sullivan. He won the All-Ireland title in Ceol Uirlse back in 1972 in Scór Sinsir.

Meanwhile, there was an unbelievable reaction when Carbery Rangers name was called out for winning the 2018 All-Ireland final in the Balled Group Section.

The Carbery group sang two songs – Lovely Derry on the Banks of the Foyle and Moll Dubh a’Ghleanna. It was the first All-Ireland winning Scór title for Carbery Rangers since Scór was first established in 1969.

The group of five made up of Aoife McSweeney, Joan O’Donovan, Kate Creedon, Orlagh O’Gorman and Rachel Hodnett have participated in Scór since the ages of seven or eight at County and Munster levels.
