🏃‍♀️ 💚💛When You Give A Girl A Pair Of boots💚💛🏃‍♀️

It's more than a pair of shoes.

When you give a girl a pair of boots, you are giving her far more than a new pair of shoes. You are giving her new friends and new challenges and so many lessons and some of her best memories.

When you give a girl a pair of boots, you are giving her a team. You are giving her a group of girls that she might not have ever talked to if it wasn’t for these common boots. A group of girls who will teach her how to be a teammate. A group of girls who will laugh with her and yell at her and train with her and win with her and lose with her. With a pair of boots comes a group of mismatched people with a common goal who are learning from each other and working together.

When you give a girl a pair of boots, you are giving her a coach. This coach is going to play an instrumental role in her love or hate for the sport. This coach will work her hard. This coach will train her and teach her and encourage her and yell at her and make her cry and hug her and cheer her on. This coach wants to see her succeed. This coach knows what these boots mean, what this sport means. And this coach will be someone that she will watch. She will watch the way that her coach talks to her and talks to her teammates and talks to the other team and she will see her coach’s responses to games that are won and games that are lost. This pair of boots comes with a role model, for better or for worse.

When you give a girl a pair of boots, you are giving her team practices. You are giving her practice that will instill discipline and dedication and commitment. You are teaching her that she is on a team and she is expected to put in time. You are teaching her that her presence is important and that people are relying on her. You are teaching her how to balance her time, because, now, she has school and practice and games and teammates and friends and family. And for the first time in her life, she has to establish priorities. With this practice time comes some of the hardest conditioning and training. With this practice time comes some of her favorite memories as she bonds with her teammates and laughs with them and works hard with them. This pair of boots comes with quite the time commitment.

When you give a girl a pair of boots, you are giving her game days. You are giving her bus rides and warm up playlists and team matching hair ribbons and orange slices at half-time and constantly looking for your water bottle on the sidelines. You are giving her a competitiveness that can only come out on the field. You are giving her the cheers from the sidelines and the screams of her coach and the exhaustion in her legs at the end of the game. You are giving her handshakes with opponents and a winning attitude even when she loses. With a pair of boots comes pasta dinners and game days; These will become her favorite days.

When you give a girl a pair of boots, you are giving her a challenge. She is going to grow and learn, and she’s going to want to quit at times, but she is going to look down at her feet and remember why she’s doing this. She’s going to remember her teammates and her coaches and the amount of time she’s poured into this sport, and she’s going to realize that it’s worth it. She’s going to be covered in bruises and her socks are going to stink, and she’s always going to be looking for a sock or needing a hair elastic. She’s going to be tired, and she’s going to get hurt. But those boots are going to establish lessons that she’s going to remember for the rest of her life, friends that she is going to learn to love, and discipline that she is going to be thankful for. If you’re the girl with the boots, soak it in. Love the long practices and the exhaustion and the sound of the whistle that starts the game. If you’re the girl without the boots, go get some. Try something new. Take the risk. Sign up for the team, the musical, the club. You will regret it if you don’t. Even if you fail, few things can teach you the lessons that those boots will.

Sincerely,
The Girl Who Hung Up Her boots

The Executive Committee and the members of Ballela CLG send our deepest condolences to the the family and friends of Colin Murray. May he rest in peace.

Mary Queen of Gaels pray for him.

💚💛💚💛

Message from Sean Óg reads:

Coiste Chontae an Dúin and the family that is Down GAA are saddened to report with great Sadness that we have learned of the death of Colin Murray a man taken much too soon from us, One of our outstanding referees in recent times, Colin had officiated at many County Finals at all levels and had been a member of the GAA Inter County panel of Referees.

A member of the Darragh Cross Club, who played football and hurling for his Club, he developed though a real passion for hurling, he was a man who was a great support to other Referees, was willing always to help out any other Match Official who needed an umpire or a linesman. Colin was a man whose good nature and personality saw him as a friend to many players and officials, He was widely respected throughout the County and beyond.

We offer our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to his wife Donna, his daughters Nikita, Niamh, his son Finn, his grandchildren, his son in law, his parents, his brother and sisters and the entire Murray family circle. To the Gaels of Darragh Cross we offer our condolences on the loss of a great Club man.
