CUMANN SHEÁIN UÍ NÉILL”Mól an Óige agus Tíocfaidh sí “
Camloch, Co. Ard Mhacha
Cairde Sheáin Uí Néill of Shane O’Neill’s, are people who have a strong belief and
a firm committment to the Camloch area and its people.
We believe Camloch is an important place… because its our place. We believe its young
people are important ….. because they’re our young people. Above all we believe that
a hugely important contributor to the life and wellbeing of our young people is the
Shane O’Neill’s GAA Club.
Who Are We?
Cairde Sheáin Uí Néill
We provide sports facilities for over 250 young people in Camloch, from U.6’s right
up to not-so-young adults.
We support and manage 14 teams, both male and female of all ages.
We are central to our local community.
We hope to offer all those players and participants facilities at Shane O’Neill’s
that will be as good as any, costing approx £500,000.
Like the rest of Ireland, our local area changes on a daily basis. Not all that change
is good and our young people in particular face new and growing pressures and difficulties.
We unashamedly see Cumann Sheáin Uí Néill and our delivery of gaelic games as a bulwark
against those pressures and difficulties. Everything we do at the club is aimed at:
Giving our young people confidence and a strong sense of self-worth
Making them proud of who they are and where they come from
Helping them make good, positive lifestyle choices
Giving them a focus; a sense of teamwork and discipline; and healthy, structured
and enjoyable activity
Building a strong community spirit and binding our people together
Cementing the breadth and depth of the gaelic tradition locally
Contributing to the development of Armagh and Ulster GAA overall
The work we do – or don’t do – now will shape the Shane O’Neill’s of the future.
And that is something vitally important for all of us.

What We Do?
All the work we deliver as a club at Shane O’Neill’s and elsewhere is provided on
a voluntary basis. We are GAA people because we believe in the GAA and because we
believe in the well-being of the local area and its people.
But building and maintaining a club like ours costs money. Volunteer effort isn’t
enough on it’s own. That’s where Cairde Sheáin Uí Néill (The Friends of Shane O’Neill’s)
Cairde S.O.N members agree to contribute £10 per month, for a set period or open-ended,
to help us make Shane O’Neill’s better for our young people. In return we’ll provide
our part of that better Shane O’Neill’s. We think that’s a very good deal for everyone.
We won’t use your money for our day-to-day running costs but will instead dedicate
it to structured development work above, improving our facilities and the programmes
we provide for our young people.
