So many GAA clubs throughout Dublin - and indeed throughout the country - have stepped up during this Covid-19 pandemic to help their local communities.
The GAA have come together with SuperValu & Centra to launch a new initiative to support the elderly in our communities during the current restrictions.
While many of our clubs across Dublin have also put measures in place to assist their communities over the coming weeks.
Check some of them out below (If your club is doing something similar but it's not included, let us know)
BALLINTEER ST JOHNS
BSJ volunteers are available to help with grocery shops, pharmacy runs & deliveries. For assistance:
