Jean O’Loughlin Memorial Tournament

Following the loss of our teammate and dear friend Jean in September, we at St. Anne’s want to honour and celebrate her short but impactful life by hosting a memorial camogie tournament organised by our adult team. We would love for everyone to come along, watch the matches and celebrate Jean’s life with us on Saturday 11th March in Dunhill GAA pitch from 12.30pm.

We will be collecting donations on the day for ACT for Meningitis 

Bacterial meningitis can be very severe, leading to fatality in cases and can otherwise cause serious complications such as brain damage, loss of limbs, hearing loss, or learning disabilities for those who survive. There are lots of factors which can contribute to the risk of bacterial meningitis such as age for example. Infants from 0 to 5 years old are more at risk than other age groups, but people of any age can contract the disease, students being the second high-risk age group. Other factors such as community settings for example, those in a close contact environments like college students are more at risk as infectious diseases tend to spread more quickly in larger groups in which people gather together. Bacterial meningitis can be treated effectively with antibiotics, but it is vital these are started as soon as possible. Approximately 1 in 3 people who survive bacterial meningitis will unfortunately suffer an after effect. These after affects can range from mild to severe disabilities. Some may improve with time, although unfortunately some may not. There are vaccines to help protect against some strains of meningitis and septicaemia in Ireland, but unfortunately not all yet.

The most common symptoms of bacterial meningitis are:
Painful, stiff neck with limited range of motion
High fever Feeling confused or sleepy
Bruising easily all over the body
A rash on the skin
Sensitivity to light
