Magic of a drive-thru Santa – Laois GAA club pull out all the stops for their young members

Everything this year has had to be done differently, especially the visits to Santa Claus.

All over the world, social distancing has had to be observed when visiting the big man leading to all sorts of inventive ways of arranging this year’s Christmas trip.

GAA clubs around the country have had to make do with less game time this year and innovative ways to keep their members involved.

In Annanough GAA, they organised a drive-thru visit to Santa for their young members last week.

Under the direction of juvenile officer Lisa Foley, they arranged a a really good set up with elves, lights, decorations and Santa himself on the grounds of the club.

And it went down a treat with parents all given an allotted time for their visit where they were given a gift by Santa and a bag of home-made cookies by Pauline Miller, complete with an Annanough sticker!

And no doubt all the young players will be keen to get back playing matches again in 2021 – after the excitement of Christmas has subsided!
