Gaeil na Daibhéidí

Davitts u-14 and u-16 age groups have recently formed a co-operation with Mayo Gaels.
A co-operation is when two clubs come together in a particular age group for a temporary period of time. We do not have enough numbers in those two grades to be able to field a team on our own. The Bord na nÓg have worked hard to find the best solution to this problem, ensuring that what is best for the children comes first. They met with parents and looked if there was any club in the area that might be in a similar situation as ourselves. When Mayo Gaels became an option, Paul Carey and Kevin Cullina met with the managers and committee who decided that this could be an ideal fit. After encouraging meetings with Mayo Gaels, both clubs felt that the co-operation should be mutually beneficial.
What does this mean for the children in those age groups? They are still members of Davitts GAA Club and Mayo Gaels GAA Club and they can still play in other age groups for Davitts or Mayo Gaels (if eligible). As previously stated the co-operation is not a permanent transfer.
Our new name in those two age groups will be Gaeil Na Daibhéidí. We are looking forward to an exciting season. ⬛🟥🟦🟨

Bord Na nÓg announcement

 
📢📢📢📢📢
YOUTH ACADEMY NAME: AND THE WINNER IS……
Last week we invited all of the children in Irishtown and Ballindine National schools to suggest what the name of our new youth academy is going to be. And they most certainly did not disappoint!
The sheer variety and inventiveness of the suggestions made the selection process quite a tricky task.
After first shortlisting the entries, a subsequent vote by the Bord na n-Óg committee and consultation with our Senior committee, we are thrilled to announce the name for our new Youth Academy:
DAVITTS DRAGONS 🔴 🐉 ⚫
Thank you to all the boys and girls who gave us such super suggestions (even the one or two mischievous proposals from children with parents that are affiliated to our neighbouring clubs, which was to be expected and which gave us a good laugh 😊).
Now that the Academy name has been confirmed, we will be asking for the children’s input once more to help us design a logo for The Davitts Dragons!
This Monday (29th Jan), entry sheets will once again be distributed in both National schools, and the children will have an opportunity to express their creativity and artistic talents.
The sheets will be collected on Thursday 01st Feb, which will allow plenty of time for the children (and any parents that want to partake) to have a think about what a logo (or what aspects of a logo) for The Davitts Dragons might potentially look like.
We are really, really looking forward to seeing what ideas come back to us at the end of the week…so, get ready to channel your inner Michealangelo (Stephens?), Picasso (Kilkenny?) or Rembrandt (Treacy?) 🎨 🖌

Bord Na nÓg announcement

📣📣📣📣
The Davitts Bord na n-Óg committee have an exciting announcement to make for the upcoming season.
2024 will be the inaugural year for a new youth academy, which will focus on the U-6 up to and including the U-12 groups.
Over the next two weeks, we will work with Irishtown and Ballindine National Schools to involve all the children in the parish that play for these age groups.
We believe the children should have a part to play in helping to select a name for the youth academy AND also in the design of a new logo!
This coming week, entry forms will be distributed to classes in both schools to give all children the option to suggest a name for the new youth academy. All entries will be reviewed and shortlisted before a vote by the Bord na n-Óg committe to decide on the new name, which will then be announced.
The following week things will move up a gear, as all children will again be given an opportunity to design a logo that is reflective of the new academy name!
Again, entries will be shortlisted and proceed to a vote by the committee to rubber stamp the final design.
Entry forms for name suggestions will be distributed on Monday 22nd Jan and collected Thursday 25th Jan. The new name will be announced Sunday 28th Jan. ✍️
Entry forms for the logo designs be distributed Monday 29th Jan and collected Thursday 01st Feb. The selected design will then be digitalised and publicised in the month of Feb. 🎨
Whilst some ideas for names and designs have already been suggested by Bord na n-Óg committee members, the aim of this initiative is to demonstrate our committment from Day 1 to foster and encourage fun and participation in addition to harnessing the talent and creativity that we know our children possess in spades.
We want the children to be proud to be a part of this academy, and we believe that involving them in such fundamental aspects as the naming and designing of the logo is an important first step toward this aim.
It is important to note that our beautiful Club Crest that has been proudly worn by all our teams since its inception is still the one and only official club crest. We feel that the academy logo will create a stronger sense of belonging and a sense of pride amongst our youngest players until such time that they are old enough to understand and appreciate what the official Davitts GAA Club crest signifies.
We hope all children (and parents if desired 🙂) get stuck in and have fun over the coming weeks! We truly are looking forward to seeing everybody’s ideas! 💡 ✍️ 🎨 🔴⚫️
