Tournament in Tallinn - Accommodation and few questions

From: secretary.estonia europe
Date: Wednesday, 3 July 2013
Subject: Tournament in Tallinn - Accommodation and few questions

Hi all,

I know that most of you are having nice summer holiday. But only few
weeks left to Tallinn tournament and as we would like to offer you all
the good things that we have here we would like to get answers from
you to the following questions:

1) How many people (ladies and men) are coming to Tallinn?
2) Are you coming on Friday evening or on Saturday morning (could you
already specify time if possible)?

 Please reply to me latest on Monday 8.07.2013

Another thing is that this year we are still trying to get good
accommodation offers but due to Robbie Williams concert on 20th august
it is really hard although there are lot of places still available.
Just to be on the safe side please start looking accommodation. We
will come back to you next week, if we have something to offer you.

 If you have questions please do not hesitate to ask :)

BW, Siret

Tallinn Trip Cost

Hi Guys,
I know the Gothenburg tournament is still a work in progress but
thought I throw this out as a first pass for the Estonia trip.

2 sheets – Boat and road trip & Flight

Only booked for 8 people as that is all websites would give me.  It
should scale normally.
Boat might be a limited offer as hotel cost is free (TBC).

World Mini Games GAA 7s - Cork, Ireland

Good Afternoon,

I hope preparations are going well for the tournaments this weekend!
It's our biggest weekend in terms of playing activity, and we have
already received media coverage in Ireland and locally.

Any photos from the weekend would be appreciated, please forward them
to our PRO Brian ( as some articles will be
appearing in National papers next week and we have been requested to
provide good quality shots. Please also provide us with scores and
results so they can be published ASAP.

As regards the forwarded mail below, clubs are invited to express
interest directly to the organisers. This event has no European GAA
input, so clubs enter on their own prerogative/expense.

Enjoy the weekend!

Is mise

A chairde,

It is a pleasure to reach out to the pioneers of Gaelic Games in
Europe.  Being a Ballincollig GAA man myself, married to a Polish
woman, and with every possibility i might end over there someday, its
great to know that I can keep involved, though might have to set up
the first team in Poznan rather than regularly trekking over to Cumann

My name is James O'Reilly and I am the Chairperson of the World Mini
Games, which will take place in Cork from the 23rd to the 25th of
August.  The Games, as the title suggests, are based around the
reduced format versions of adult sports, so rugby 7s, hockey 8s,
football 5 a-side etc, and there are over 30 different sports involved
so far.  We are also delighted to be hosting a Gaelic Games 7s
competition, which will be aimed at Junior level adult teams (or
equivalent) only.

The Games have been developed to give the non-elites of the world the
opportunity to take part in a large, City-wide sports event, and to
give those taking part the feeling of taking part in an Olympics or a
World Championships.  In GAA terms we are delighted to have all the
relevant backing from the various Boards, and now it is time to drive
on with the invitations.

We have more visually appealing flyers to follow, but I was hoping you
might already spread the word that the Games are taking place as no
doubt people are already making travel plans for the summer and if at
all possible mark it in your calendar, as it is an event open to many
teams under the auspices of the European Board.

All the tournaments will take place on the Saturday and Sunday, split
between UCC, CIT and Ballincollig pitches.  There will round robin
games on the Saturday and all teams will go through to a knock-out
competition on the Sunday, the level depending on their league table
finish on the Saturday.  The tournaments will also be split into
Junior A, B and possibly C, to give all Clubs a genuine and
competitive opportunity of winning a World title.

Registration to take part in the Games can be done here: however, as this is the year
of the Gathering, indeed the Games are an official flagship Gather

Street Games 16-18/8 - lite viktig info!

Hallå gänget!

Hoppas er sommar har börjat bra! Själv har mitt sommarlov börjat med
en lättare hjärnskakning då jag fick en ful tackling i ryggen under
Svenska cupen, men allt e ok och dags och börja träna stenhårt inför
kommande European Cup i Dublin i augusti.

Vill bara skicka ut lite info innan alla försvinner på semestrar och liknade.

Fångarna på Kviberg blev inställt. Synd för det hade vart skitskoj!

Däremot så kör vi nya tag inför Kulturkalaset och Street Games. Detta
är ett evenemang som kommer att vara på heden 2 16-18 augusti
kl.10-16. Det kommer att spelas cuper i streetfotboll, innebandy o
basket. Vi kommet att köra prova på verksamhet och vi kommer att dela
upp tiderna så att varje klubb får cirka en timma per dag. Men jag
räknar med att alla kan annars får ni höra av er snarast!

Något som alla bör göra är att lägga upp de banners som jag bifogar på
era hemsidor och på facebook etc. Vi behöver hjälpa till att sprida
ryktet om detta fräcka evenemang. Så var snälla och gör detta snarast.

Street Games undrar också om det är möjligt att kanske spela in ett
kort filmklipp från varje klubb, hör av er om detta skulle funka för

Kolla också in där era loggor
ligger uppe på deras sida.
