Christmas message from Carbery Chairman   23/12/2020

Teachtaireacht na Nollag ón gCathaoirleach 

Ba mhaith liom ar dtús, ar son an bhóird , ar son na hoifigigh agus ar mo shon féin, beannachtaí na Nollag a ghuí ar ghach duine ag an am speisialta seo.

Is deacair a chreidiúnt go bhfuil a leithéad de bhliain caite againn anseo i gCumann Lúthchleas Gael in iarthar Chorcaí agus ar fúd na tíre go hiomlán. Bhí sé thar a bheith deacair do ghach duine agus ní dóigh liom go bhfuil deire leis go fóill.

While there is an air of pessimism about the coming few months as regards Covid-19, we must face 2021 with renewed spirit and with the great sense of community and friendship that saw us through a challenging 2020.

Little could anybody have predicted as we faced into Christmas 2019 that almost the entire year of 2020 would be blighted and dominated by the pandemic. It proved a severe test in all walks of life and I take this opportunity to congratulate all our members on their courageous responses to the most trying of circumstances. From U.6 right up to senior, and at all levels of the association, the spirit, community effort and sheer determination not to let the virus get the better of us, has been outstanding. Sár-obair ar fad a bhí ann.

I want to finish 2020 by congratulating and thanking all members who helped in any way to get us through such a challenging year and I have no doubt that whatever faces us in 2021 will be faced with the same determined attitude. Nobody can say for certain what lies ahead and all we can do right now is to plan for some kind of a normal playing season in 2021. It will again take a united and cooperative effort from everybody, as it did in 2020, to overcome the difficulties and emerge at Christmas 2021 with a smile on our faces.

Right now, we would encourage all members to take whatever precautions are necessary to safeguard yourselves, your families and your friends during this Christmas time. It may mean some short-term sacrifices for long-term gains but it will be worth it. If we want the new playing season to resume in February, then we must follow all guidelines and, as we did in 2020, give a guide to the rest of Irish society as to how to behave in this pandemic.

The GAA played a huge part in taking our minds off the pandemic in 2020 ad we have no doubt it will do the same again in 2021, because you, the members will make it so.

We are already looking forward to finishing all the 2020 competitions and starting the new competitions for 2021.

Enjoy the Christmas as best you can in whatever circumstances you find yourself and please be mindful of the vulnerable and needy in our communities at this special time of the year.

Míle buíochas arís.

Nollaig shona agus ath-bhliain faoi mhaise do ghach duine. Ar aghaidh linn le chéile.

Tomás Ó Laighin,

Cathaoirleach Chairbre
