Inter Club Teams

Stackstowwn Teams
Stackstown’s teams are about member participation in GUI Inter Club Competitions (ICC).  We strive to be competitive in all the competitions we enter and aspire to continuing the club’s proud tradition of winning both Leinster and All Ireland GUI titles.  We also enter men’s teams in other competitions such as the Best Cup and the Super Seniors. The club encourages participation by new and long standing member in all the competitions for which they may be eligible to play. We want all members to participate as Team Managers, Team Panel Members or Supporters.
  
Stackstown has a Coordination Team for men’s GUI inter-club competitions which provides oversight and guidance for club teams. The role of the Coordination team is to: 

  • Ensure open recruitment and selection of ICC Management Teams, 
  • Draft guidelines for Management Teams, 
  • Promote increased member participation and competitiveness and 
  • Ensure clear and consistent communication for ICC teams.  

The Coordination Team members are Peadar Hogan, Larry O Connor, Ray O Connor and club professional Anthony O Hanlon.
