Strabane Sigersons GAA hosted their annual Campa na Cásca – Easter Coaching Camp on Tuesday & Wednesday over the Easter holiday period with 175 children in attendance to receive quality coaching from Sigersons Club coaches and several County players.

The Tyrone players included local representatives Dan McBride, Tori McLaughlin and Ryan McElroy who were accompanied by Cathal McShane, Ronan O’Neill, Ronan McNamee, Conal McCann and Mark Bradley who all left impressed with not only the numbers at the camp but also the quality of football on display.


Thanks to Kavanagh’s SuperValu Strabane for assisting with funding the expenses for the visiting Tyrone Players and store manager Colm Gallagher even went the extra mile and assisted with coaching at the Camp.

The young Sigersons players showcased their Gaelic skills through a variety of fun, games and activities at the immaculate sun kissed facilities at Páirc Mhic Sioghair. All of those in attendance received a” Campa na Cásca 2015″ T-shirt provided by Strabane Neighbourhood Health Improvement Project and to recognise the efforts of our young stars several prizes were given out at each age category, the winners were as follows:
